UPstar. Music Partners With Slide & Ride Rodeo For First Ever "8 Second Round": Bringing Original Music To Jackson,TN

This coming Friday, April 12th, UPstar. Music is partnering with Slide & Ride Rodeo to bring you live original music straight from Nashville and West Tennessee. We have planned an electric night filled with live music, bull riding, line dancing and a party all night long. Slide & Ride Rodeo brings you the unique experience of live bull riding inside of the bar... you heard that right. This is no mechanical bull, they bring you the real thing filling your weekend with action packed moments you will never forget.

Slide & Ride Rodeo kicks off the party with doors at 7PM and stays open late night until 3AM. As the "8 Second Round" is not a ticketed event, there is a $15 cover at the door that gets you in for the entire night and gets you access to all the festivities. Slide & Ride Rodeo is 21+.

8 Second Round Lineup  

 10PM - Caleb Seth, Jax Hames, Hunt Pearson

11PM - Hunter Jordan, Will Dinnat, Cole Bradford

**Bull Riding will take place at approximately 11PM and 12AM**

What's a Writers Round?

We all love Country Music, am I right?? I can admit there's nothing like heading down to Broadway and getting to hear talented musicians cover your favorite songs like "Wagon Wheel", "Chicken Fried" and "Whiskey Glasses". But, Nashville is "Music City" and it is filled with some of the most talented songwriters around at all levels, who help bring your favorite songs to life. Writers rounds are a Nashville staple. Songwriters are given a stage to showcase the original music they have been writing and share it with folks in the industry, other songwriters, artists as well as fans! There are several writers rounds held every week on Broadway, in Midtown and other bars and venues around Nashville! These spaces have been a cornerstone for the Nashville songwriters community for over the last decade as a way to network and hangout with others in the industry. Writers rounds are truly special. For those that haven't got to experience one, it's a must if you are ever visiting Nashville! And for those around the Jackson area, we are bringing that Nashville soul to your backyard with the "8 Second Round" event this Friday. You definitely don't want to miss it!
