We love getting the lowdown on things to do in Nashville from the folks that live here. We especially like learning what new-to-towners, like Alexandria Corn, are discovering in Music City. Find out how this up and coming artist spends her time in her new hometown.
She’s grown up a bit since her appearance on American Idol, but Alexandria Corn hasn’t stopped her upward trajectory in pop country music. You might have heard her first single “Say It Again” or her latest, “Beach Town Sunrise.” You may have also seen her around town since she moved here just a few weeks ago to write and record her first EP.
The upstate New York native took a break from the studio to let us in on some of the Music City stuff to do she’s discovered so far. Read on to find out where you might spot this Nashville newbie and be sure to follow her on Instagram @AlexandriaCornMusic and on Facebook for all the latest updates and new music early in 2019!
Discovering Nashville with Alexandria Corn
1. Where to Catch Up and Coming Artists
You can see Alexandria this weekend at The Row and Friskey Frog’s, but she’s becoming a regular on stages all around town.
“I was introduced to Whiskey Jam a few years back when I was visiting, and ever since then, I have made it a point to check it out. I think it’s so awesome that they showcase local artists and up and coming songwriters. You also never know what country star is going to show up and hop on stage!”
Take a listen to Alexandria’s Acadamia Award-winning single “Beach Town Sunrise” here:
2. Where to See Live Music and Writers Rounds
Alexandria’s performed at “Boots On Stage” events and was entered into the Nash Next 2017 Country Competition, taking place as a finalist for Ventura County with KHAY-FM, but supporting her fellow songwriters at Nashville’s signature venues makes her weekly to-do list.
“The Listening Room Cafe, The Grand Ole Opry and The Bluebird Cafe are legendary, so being able to play there is definitely a step in the right direction for up and coming musicians. Tin Roof, is more about the fun atmosphere. It’s a very positive vibe.”
We have a feeling she’ll be gracing these stages soon, but in her free time, Alexandria can be found exploring Nashville’s neighborhoods, like 12 South.
3. Favorite Weekend Party Place
Corn is up for Entertainer of the Year, Female Vocalist of the Year and Best Song of the Year in The California Country Music Awards taking place on 12/16/18. Until then, it can’t be all work and no play. To let off steam, Alexandria joins the legions of locals and tourists who shake it off at Dierks Bentley’s Whiskey Row.
“They have great DJs there. My favorite song to dance to is really whatever I’m feeling after a few drinks! Definitely love me some Cardi B.”
Don’t miss Alexandria Corn on Saturday, November 10 at 4pm at The Row and Sunday, November 11 at 6pm at Frisky Frog’s.
