WFMC Jams

WFMC Jams is an online internet radio station committed to bringing you original music as well as your favorite classics from a variety of local artists in the area. The station was founded on June 24, 2012 right after the Third Annual Fam Jam music festival in Manchester, TN. The idea came up as a way to continue to give back to the local and regional songwriters and performers in the area year round by promoting their music.

Highway Natives is an American rock 5-piece out of Nashville, TN. With "a retro ‘70s vibe combined with roots-flavored country-rock brawn, Highway Natives conjures up early Allman Brothers, The Black Crowes, and savors of the fictional band Stillwater in Almost Famous," (Medium). Having such a wide array of eclectic influences, at their core, the group can best be distinguished by their rich, soulful harmonies, artful full-bodied stylings on guitar, and a rhythm section that’s groovy timekeeping is nestled tightly underneath singable and raw lyrics that trade between the two lead singers.


Made up of Brandon Moore, Jordan Miller, Matt Drummey, Artie Scarazzo, and Arthur Stover, Highway Natives was originally formed as a duo in mid-2019 when Moore and Miller recognized their songwriting compatibility, and created together as an escape from the rigorous and hectic music business where they worked behind-the-scenes at a record label and a recording studio. After recording demos with large, full band productions, they realized what they really longed for was a sonically larger live sound, as well as a collective group to share the vision with. With a careful selection, Drummey, Scarazzo, and Stover were brought on and the group quickly solidified and started hitting the road together.

In May of 2021, the group released their first project, a self-titled EP; 4 carefully selected songs from a catalog of songs they were already playing live. Highway Natives debut EP went on to receive acclaim from publications such as American Songwriter and Medium, and took them to stages all over the southeastern region of the USA.


Following their EP, some members of the group went through personal, life-changing events, on top of being in the midst of a global pandemic. As serious changes and adaptations were happening in their personal lives, the Natives lifted each other through writing and creating music as a remedy. The time spent together in this period of their career resulted in the making of their first full length LP, “West of the Blindside,” out now.

"In the House" at the Grinder House is broadcast live on WFMC Jams every Saturday from 6-8pm central.

The Jolly String Quartet, Russian-born siblings with an amazing story, mix velvet vocals and fiery fiddling with red-hot mandolin and guitar for a blend of folk, pop, jazz, blues, gospel, and newgrass, featuring songs from Sinatra to Cash. This remarkable group has graced the stages of The Opry House, Carnegie Hall, The Country Music Hall of Fame, and The Ryman Auditorium and have entertained in venues as diverse as Nashville’s Puckett’s Restaurant and the Orleans Casino in Las Vegas. Stunningly skillful musicianship and diversity of style – along with a compelling story of redemption from the darkness of a Russian orphanage – produce a concert experience that is certain to intrigue and entertain. Viktor, Gorsha, Yara, and Kristina Jolly, who make up The Jolly String Quartet, were born in Far East Russia, but they now have deep Southern roots that enrich their music with all-American values of freedom, faith, and family. Russian beginnings, an American upbringing, and the flair of a fiery fiddle make music that is both extraordinary and just plain old hand-clapping fun.

For over three decades, Brooks and Dunn has been well known in Nashville for their numerous hits including "My Maria," "Boot Scootin' Boogie" to name a few.

For the past 6 years, The Smoky Nights have filled the music venues of Middle Tennessee with uplifting melodies and harmonies. After moving to Cookeville TN, singer/songwriters Lily and Anthony Nguyen formed an acoustic band inspired by the guitar-driven sounds of Music City. They developed an original style, combining acoustic guitar, mandolin, and violin with melodic pop arrangements to play for a variety of audiences. The husband-wife duo, originally from Wisconsin, wrote the music and lyrics to the band’s studio albums: “Burning Bridges” (2019), and “Waking Up In Wonderland” (2021).

After the release of “Burning Bridges” in July 2019, The Smoky Nights set out to play music for wider audiences across the US. The band has since played in Texas, Wisconsin, Illinois, Kentucky, North Carolina, South Carolina, and even Mexico. In late 2019, they opened for Grammy-Award winning and RIAA platinum country band Diamond Rio, and they have also supported Cookeville-based artist Jake Hoot, winner of Season 17 of NBC’s The Voice. In 2022 they were the opening act for rock bands Jasmine Cain, and Resurrection - A Journey Tribute. 
 
The Smoky Nights describe their sound as a blend of soul, pop, folk, and R&B music with influences spanning multiple generations and genres. Artists like Fleetwood Mac, Etta James, Santana, Outkast, Fitz & the Tantrums, Leon Bridges, and Beyonce have all uniquely inspired the band’s songwriting. Although their music is atypical for the region, The Smoky Nights have found a loyal following in Tennessee and continue to attract fans through their energetic live performances.
