Sylvia To Appear on Ernest Tubb Record Shop’s Midnite Jamboree This Weekend in Nashville
Nashville, Tenn. (February 17, 2017) - Country singer Sylvia, who stole America’s hearts with signature hits like “Nobody” and “Tumbleweed,” will appear on Ernest Tubb Record Shop’s Midnite Jamboree this weekend. On Saturday, Feb. 18, the country hit maker will take the stage for the hit show, which is the second longest running radio program in history, right behind WSM AM’s Grand Ole Opry. The performance comes on the heels of a recent return to the Grand Ole Opry in January, marking Sylvia’s triumphant return to the Ryman Auditorium to promote her latest project, It’s All In The Family.
"You would think that you would play or perform more in your hometown of Nashville since it is Music City, but actually it's kind of rare. You actually do concerts out on the road, so it's a special occasion when I get to do the WSM Midnight Jamboree and I get to play my hometown,” says Sylvia. “And I consider Nashville my hometown since I've been here much longer than I was in Kokomo, Indiana where I grew up. I love Nashville, love country music and love being a part now of the legacy of getting to play the Opry and the Midnight Jamboree, it's such an honor, and I always look forward to it."
Admission to the event is FREE for all fans. The show broadcasts on 650AM / WSM The Legend, or country enthusiasts can listen in live at wsmonline.com. The show comes on the anniversary of the chart-topper’s album, Just Sylvia, which celebrates its 35th Anniversary this year.
With the release of Sylvia’s second RCA album, Just Sylvia, the single “Nobody” sold two million copies and was #1 on all country music charts. It was awarded BMI “Song of the Year” for receiving the most radio airplay in 1983. “Nobody” also reached #13 as a crossover hit on Billboard’s Top 100 chart and spent a total of 52 weeks on both charts. Recording for RCA until the end of 1987, Sylvia recorded six albums and garnered a total of 13 Top Ten and No. 1 songs, selling over 4 million records. In 1982, Sylvia was named “Female Vocalist of the Year” by the Academy of Country Music and was a Grammy nominee in the “Best Female Country Vocal Performance” category in 1983. Over an eight-year period, Sylvia crisscrossed America many times with her popular concert performances (over 200 per year), and she was a frequent guest on network television talk shows and specials – from The Today Show and Good Morning, America to Dick Clark’s American Bandstand, and the Country Music Awards. Today, Sylvia records for her own independent record label, Red Pony Records and has released three CDs, “The Real Story” (1996), “Where In The World” (2002), and “A Cradle In Bethlehem” (2002). Sylvia’s first record in 14 years, “It’s All In The Family” (2016), was released on October 7th.
