8:00 :: Charley Woods
Born and raised in the now ultra-hip district of East Nashville, Charley Woods truly was “Nashville before Nashville was cool”. This badge of honor helps her stand out among a wave of new talent that rushes into the city on a daily basis. But with a voice like hers, reputation isn’t something you need in order to stand out among the rest. Tennessee born & bred, she prides herself on her passion for individuality. She brings an all-Americana sound to the heavily saturated pop/country music scene that dwells in Nashville today. With her authentic, tell-it-like-it is personality & a relentless work ethic, Charley has opened doors for herself from an early age. She’s sung alongside Brad Paisley during the 2011 CMA awards, she’s appeared on Good Morning America and world renown stages such as The Grand Ole Opry and The Ryman Auditorium – all before the tender age of 18. As you can imagine, Charley Woods has learned to perform under pressure, but her greatest honor is creating a deep connection with her audience – And her ability to do so, is inspiring to say the least.
Charley Woods’ true passion is creating, who she calls “fan-friends”, with her message. “It’s the connection that I’m after. Nashville is great, and it’s cool when people tell you how wonderful they think you are – but when a connection is made with someone I would’ve never met had it not been for a song I wrote.. yeah – that’s the good stuff. And I want to have the opportunity to share that with as many people as I can.” Her love of music & traveling has taken her thousands of miles across the country. She deems each journey worthwhile, if not but to touch one person with her vivid songwriting & storytelling.
