Both the music business and baseball know how to make hits and play games. Whether you work in radio or just in anything remotely related, read on to take note of a deal which sounds so good but will soon be outdated – better batter up while you can for buy one get one free tickets along with other discounted game day delights at tonight’s Nashville Sounds minor league baseball game. Radio industry publication “Country Aircheck” is sponsoring this go-round of Music Industry Wednesday (the last for the season).
Speaking of rounds: since there’s simply just not enough alcohol in the music business, those participating in the promotion may also join in on an exclusive Happy Hour of $2.00 12oz. domestic drafts from 6:05 p.m. – 7:05 p.m. by the Sounds stage near the main entrance at Greer Stadium. Country Aircheck will also spring for a beer and hot dog for the first 200 attendees. The game starts at 7:05.
A pregame performance by Easton Hamlin with the National Anthem performed by Becky Hibbs will sharpen out the team’s tuneful shape on tonight’s diamond. Previous industry night games included performances by Lewis Brice, The Grascals, and more.
“I worked with the Sounds to develop a specialized night for the wonderful music community,” Chris Alderman, Manager Turner & Nichols, says on the Sounds’ site. “It is an opportunity for labels, agents, and managers to showcase new acts along with a night to enjoy one of America’s favorite pastimes.”
It IS “Music City,” after all – so whichever way you consider yourself fit to be tied up in it, it always helps to endure a little less loosening of the purse strings. For further information click here.

For questions contact Kevin Samborski at (615) 690-HITS ext. 104. Also keep the ole ballgame in mind for tomorrow (August 30th) though, when at 6 pm Richard Sterban of The Oak Ridge Boys will be signing copies of his cleverly-titled book “From Elvis to Elvira” in the Greer Stadium Pro Shop before the game.
