This unscripted, unplugged, and unbelievable 90-minute show will bring the best in performing songwriter experiences to the stage, where the award-winning/Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter, Billy Yates, will introduce the audience to the world of performing songwriters, as two other hit songwriter/artists from Nashville will join Billy on stage each week to casually tell the stories behind the songs they play.  This relaxed and unscripted show allows the audience to enjoy the spirit of what makes acoustic performances of songs, by the ones who wrote them, so great
