About Ten Out of Tenn
A sort of singer-songwriter supergroup, Ten Out Of Tenn tackled the seemingly impossible – 10 artists, all who have their own successful careers and fan bases, rallying together as they swap vocals and instruments during their shows for a unique twist on each other’s creative work. Artists like Andy Davis, Mikky Ekko, Matthew Perryman Jones, Ashley Monroe, Paper Route and Joy Williams have all been part of Ten Out of Tenn. In 2009, TOT released their award winning documentary, “Any Day Now,” which debuted during the Nashville Film Festival. Through the years, the collective has been highly embraced, garnering national praises from American Songwriter, ELLE, Nylon, Paste Magazine, Southern Living, USA Today and more.
