Artists you should know... if you don't

If you know me, you know my obsession (not an understatement) with music - particularly Ten out of Tenn. haha (I know my family does!) lol -So if you DON'T know.... lemme just sit and tell you a little this secret that needs to be spread!...  Ten out of Tenn!- Its a group of 10 separate musicians from Nashville, TN who joined together for a tour across the U.S.  They decided that instead of waiting for America to hear about them,  that they would band together and prove that they are worth our listening time. And believe me - they are far beyond that! Firstly their ambition and passion is inspiring. Their music reaches far beyond the depths of just a "song".  Writing and composing all their own music and lyrics - its a symphony of bliss! :) Sometimes when im listening to their music I can't do anything else but listen and dream. The creativity and emotion evoked lyrics, the instrumentals, the passion and the purity of their sound is so unique that you can't help but be captivated. The songs are catchy, but they are so much more meaningful than the majority of the songs on the radio. If you get a chance to see them in concert - i would HIGHLY recommend it! Its a $10 concert - for 10 of the most amazing musicians you'll find on this side of the continental US! :) Just take my word. Im going to see them in Nashville on April 10th. And I can't wait!! 
So with out delay... Here are the Tempting Ten:







here is their tour lineup - and yes, i know im missing them here in colorado like the WEEK after i move. I'm still mending my broken heart... *sniff* lol
