Friday night was another 901 Music Roadtrip; we covered Train, The Fray, and Matt Nathanson at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville.
Matt Nathanson opened the show and had the duty of firing up the crowd for a night full of hits from bands that are hard not-to-love. Matt opened the show with his song Kink Shirt and followed it with U2 cover, I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For. Matt finished his set with a mashup of his hit Come On Get Higher and the legendary Grease track, You're The One That I Want. The crowd erupted as he walked off stage.
The Fray is one of those bands you hear their songs on the radio again and again because it's rare that their records get old. They opened their set with Heartbreak and played through their massive hits such as You Found Me, How To Save a Life, and Over My Head (Cable Car). Legendary band = legendary set.
I've never met someone that genuinely just doesn't like Train. They are universal, they write great songs, perform those great songs incredible well, and make killer records. I'm going to post their whole setlist because it was that incredible. Every song the crowd knew and sang. I've highlighted my favorites 😀
