Y96.9 and Oakwood Homes have teamed up once again, not only to throw the Holiday party of the year, but to raise some money for the kids at St. Jude as well. Our annual Acoustic Christmas is back!!!
This year's event will take place December 3rd at Cowboy’s in Downtown Colorado Springs, and once again, we have some of the brightest new stars from Nashville! Here's the lineup;
- Mitchell Tenpenny
- Jameson Rodgers
- Tenille Townes
- Brandon Ratcliff
Five incredible acts, one stage, and it only costs you $9.69… Better yet, ALL of that money goes straight to the kids at St Jude Children Research Hospital.
Each week, we'd also like you to get to know one of the artists a little better. Today it's Filmore!!
Born and raised in Wildwood, Missouri, Filmore was active in choirs and local groups before heading to the University of Missouri where he formed a band -- also called Filmore -- that became popular on the regional college circuit; they recorded a pair of albums.
He eventually migrated to Nashville around 2011 and made a go of it as a solo artist, writing songs from a country platform that added strong pop and electronic elements into the mix. Working under his surname, Filmore released a three-song EP in 2015, landing a hit with the track "Headlights," which appeared on his 2016 album Proof.
With his profile raised, he returned in 2017 with the smooth country-pop track "You Know You Wanna," followed in early 2018 by the breakout single "Slower," a banjo-led summer anthem with plenty of mainstream pop appeal that quickly notched millions of streams. Filmore's follow-up single, "Love That About You," took a similar approach and also fared well commercially. Additional singles arrived over the next year including "Heart's Having a Hard Time" and "Livin Easy."
