December 4 show at Eddie's Attic nearing sellout

SIXWIRE with Robin Meade (L-R) Steve Hornbeak, Steve Mandile, ChuckTilley, Andy Childs, Robin Meade, Robb Houston, John Howard

From the Eddie's Attic website...

After 4 sold out shows at Eddie's Attic last year, Robin Meade returns with her popular "'Round Robin" shows, this time featuring the band SIXWIRE.

What an impossible resume on these guys:
Songs by SIXWIRE members have been recorded by Tim McGraw, Kenny Rogers, John Michael Montgomery, Brooks & Dunn, Mark Wills, Craig Morgan and more. SIXWIRE members have toured and recorded with Faith Hill, Richard Marx, Delbert McClinton, Vince Gill, Randy Owen, Lee Greenwood and countless others. SIXWIRE's charting singles were followed by touring appearances with Kenny Chesney, Martina McBride, and Tim McGraw. But chances are you recognize them most from television: You can see them now on ABC's "Nashville" as Raina Jaymes' band (actress Connie Britton). They were the house band on USA's "Nashville Star," and rocked FOX's "Next Great American Band". Though Nashville is full of musicians, it's SIXWIRE that CMT calls upon for shows like "Can You Duet" and "CMT's Next Superstar."

For the December show with Robin & Sixwire expect rock & country originals, creative covers and holiday favorites.

Check out Sixwire performing one of their originals:

See how many great guitar riffs you recognize in their mega mashup affectionately called "The Beast."
