For the third year in a row, Paste is teaming up with Aloft Hotels to take our Live at Paste sessions on the road, stopping at 20 locations around the country to shoot one-of-a-kind live performances and inviting fans and readers out to be a part of the process. This year, though, we get to be a part of their 100 Days of Music series, a celebration of the opening of Aloft’s milestone 100th hotel opening early next year.
There’s no shortage of great music in Nashville, where we held two of the final dates on this year’s Aloft tour. The city draws many up-and-coming musicians, including locally-based band Judah and the Lion. The band’s members met at Nashville’s Belmont University, and although they spend most of their time on the road these days, they still have an adoring fan base waiting for them at home. We saw this first hand when the band performed at Aloft Cool Springs, right outside of the city in Franklin, Tennessee. Watch Judah & the Lion perform “Everything Changes” from their recent release Kids These Days live at Aloft Cool Springs in the player above.
