GSTV’s exclusive video of the Grammy-nominated western swing outfit
By Alex Baker
That album launched the band into the country charts and garnered the long-serving western swing jam band that was started by a group of studio musicians back in 1998, a Grammy nomination for Best Country Album. That nomination, along with the additional of Gill, a 20-time Grammy nominated country artist, have helped introduce the Time Jumpers to a broader audience than ever before.
But the band have long been local favorites in Nashville, thanks mainly to their legendary Monday night residency at Station Inn; where major stars like Robert Plant, the White Stripes, Kings of Leon, Kelly Clarkson, and Norah Jones would often drop by to sit in.
2013 looks set to be an even bigger year for Vince Gill and the Time Jumpers. Their new found notoriety has made it difficult for the Station Inn to accommodate their growing audience. In the Spring of 2012 they decamped from their beloved Monday night venue and set up shop at the larger 3rd & Lindsley Club in Nashville. And though it didn’t win a Grammy, The Time Jumpers continues to sell well, having made it into the Country Top 40 and peaked at No. 10 on the Billboard Heatseekers Album Chart.
Watch GSTV’s exclusive footage of the band doing their thing at their regular Monday residency in Nashville.
