Music Scene: Dec. 25 - Dec. 31

Nashville recording artist Jason Mitchell will be in town to perform country and Southern rock to ring in the new year.

Mitchell will play at 9 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 31, and again at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Jan. 1, at Whiskey River, 490 28 1/4 Road.

Mitchell will play songs from his new album, “Slow and Steady.” The album is set to be released in 2010 on DMP Records.

Mitchell and his band have performed more than 200 shows this year and have already booked 135 shows for 2010. And for a second time, he will headline the Country Cruise to the Bahamas in April.

Mitchell was born with country music in his blood. His father co-wrote one of Alabama’s best known hits — “If You’re Gonna Play in Texas (Gotta Have a Fiddle in the Band)” — and other songs sung by Alabama, Johnny Paycheck and the Oak Ridge Boys.

Call 241-5179 for more information on the concerts.
