Sunday Morning Coming Down brings AmericanaFest to a lively close


Whether your Sunday morning brings the dawn in or finds you with no way to hold your head that doesn’t hurt, Sunday Morning Coming Down is the ideal end to a week of AmericanaFest. East Nashville honky-tonk stalwart J.P. Harris brought this event to life for three years running between 2014 and 2016, providing the perfect way to unwind after a busy week of music business, deals, and industry showcases with easy goin’ music, friends, and food in a relaxed setting.

“I decided to take a year off for a breather,” Harris says. “But at the behest of Americana Music Association and the general public, I’m bringing it back and taking a go big or go home approach for this year.”

The 2018 iteration of Sunday Morning Coming Down kicks off at noon on Sunday, Sept. 16 at “The Compound” – 919 Gallatin Ave. The entertainment starts at 1 p.m. with sets from the Watson Twins, Elizabeth Cook, Erin Rae, Creamer, Kevin Gordon, Kristina Murray, and J.P. Harris and Friends — with this year’s edition of “The Friends” including Michaela Anne, Kellen of Troy, Sunny War, and Joe Purdy.

Handmade goods vendors will be on site including the Hip Zipper, Midnight Rider vintage Americana apparel, Sweet Farm Jewelry, and FARMUSE. To feed the hungry people, plenty of J.P. Harris' signature and celebrated gumbo will be on hand along with That Awesome Taco Truck and a cash bar with reasonably priced beverages for both adults and the kiddos.

Admission is free, for more information and updates visit J.P. Harris on Facebook.
