Down by the Riverside presents Charlie Worsham
Sunday, July 27, 2014 7:00pm
FREE to the public
Opener: Hope Country
See Charlie Worsham on a stage and you immediately understand what he understood from the beginning: It's where he's meant to be. For him, music wasn't just a thing, it was the only thing. "I kind of feel like I didn't have much choice. The songs... the playing... those were the only things that ever really kept my attention." As a ridiculously talented multi-instrumentalist and student of great songs, he's developed a unique modern country sound built around the traditional acoustic instruments he grew up on.
Starting in his hometown of Grenada, Mississippi, Charlie was always out playing somewhere. From the Opry at age twelve to the local Missionary Baptist Church to the back-road blues joints he wasn't even supposed to know about, much less play in, wherever he found a stage, he played. And when he wasn't playing, he was listening to everything from Don Williams to Tom Petty to Earl Scruggs. With his energy and showmanship onstage and his understated Mississippi "yes sir" and "no ma'am" offstage, it's easy to understand why so many in Nashville's music community are rooting for him.
After studying at Berklee School of Music in Boston, he moved South to Nashville. For the last two years, he's divided his time between writing songs, being an in-demand studio musician for other artists and playing his music live — sharing stages across the country with Taylor Swift, Miranda Lambert and others.
He released his debut single, "Could It Be," for Warner Bros. Records in 2013. The song appears on his debut album Rubberband, released on August 20, 2013. The album features Vince Gill and Marty Stuart on one of the tracks, "Tools of the Trade."  The album's second single, "Want Me Too", was released in late 2013. On January 17, 2014 he appeared in the episode Big in the Philippines of the FOX TV Series Bones as the murder victim. His song "Love Don't Die Easy" was also featured in the episode.
