We’re finally making it back to The Cutting Room in NYC to do our “Nashville To New York” show! While we were originally bringing one other hit songwriter to perform with us, our guest unfortunately had to cancel… so this time it will just be Gary and Georgia on stage. 

Come hear the stories behind the songs…in other words, what you’ve been watching online for the last 18 months but this time LIVE and in person!!! We have formed a pretty tight community online called MB Nation and while some of our MN Nation’ers will be traveling to NYC to meet each other for the first time, several will not be able to be there. So for those folks, we will be streaming to our Middleman Burr Facebook Page the night of the show. We hope you can join us either online or in person on Oct. 6th!

About this Event

Songs have changed the world and songs have lifted us up when we’re down. Kid Pan Alley’s Because We Have Music free livestream concert series continues with some of the finest songwriters Nashville has to offer on March 14th at 7pm EST with Georgia Middleman, Tom Kimmel, and hosts Paul Reisler and Cheryl Toth. 

Georgia Middleman is an award-winning Nashville songwriter who has had songs recorded by Faith Hill, Kenny Chesney, Reba McEntire, Joe Nichols, Martina McBride, Sheila E., Radney Foster, Maia Sharp and many others. In 2011, she watched her song “I’m In” climb to the top of the country charts, courtesy of Keith Urban. Her song “When The Right One Comes Along” was featured in the ABC T.V. show “Nashville.” 

Georgia has sung with Carole King and Ringo Starr and has recorded five solo CD’s of her own. She has also recorded with her trio Blue Sky Riders (featuring Georgia, Gary Burr and Kenny Loggins.) 

A soulful, funny and inspiring singer-writer-poet, Tom Kimmel has released seven solo albums, three trio records, published a book of poems and toured across the US and in Europe. 

An artist’s artist and writer’s writer, his songs have been covered by a host of Grammy winners, including Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, Linda Ronstadt, Levon Helm, Randy Travis, Dianne Reeves and Shawn Colvin… as well as by Joe Cocker, and dozens of other artists. His work has also been featured in a number of films and television shows. Writing successes notwithstanding, Tom’s fans and critics agree that he remains his own best interpreter—a unique artist in his sixth decade of music making who continues to create, perform and inspire at the highest levels.

Paul Reisler has written more songs than the Beatles, Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell, and Stephen Foster combined—somewhere north of 3,500 compositions thanks in no small part to his army of 70,000 short collaborators in Kid Pan Alley residencies as well a handful of Grammy-winning co-writers. Artists including Sissy Spacek, Raul Malo, Darrell Scott, Cracker, Corey Harris, Jesse Winchester and many others have recorded his songs. He’s been recording, performing, and writing for the last 45 years. He’ll be joined by Cheryl Toth.

Come hear the songs performed by the people who know them the most intimately—the writers on March 14th at 7pm EST. Join in the zoom living room where you can talk with the performers and come as close as possible in these times to the magic of a house concert.

Event is FREE but you must register for a ticket. You can do that HERE
