‘Southern Living’ Hosts Flawless Inaugural Concert at Fontanel

SouthernLivingSouthern Living hosted the first installment of its inaugural summer concert series, Biscuits & Jam, during a picturesque evening in front of its Fontanel Idea House yesterday (July 7).

Fontanel co-owner Marc Oswald and Southern Living Publisher Greg Schumann mingled among guests and ensured a flawless program with program host Storme Warren.

Outlaw Country throwback, Nikki Lane, provided over a dozen tunes to accompany the intimate gathering, which was recorded for AT&T’s first ever filmed concert series. The telecommunications company will air the original programming on its Country Deep U-verse app, web and interactive U-verse TV program, which is updated on a weekly basis to feature new content including live performances, artist interviews, music videos, and specifically, original content.

The songstress performed a mixture of previously released material along with new tunes from her forthcoming spring 2014 release, produced by The Black Keys’ Dan Auerbach.

Concertgoers enjoyed front row access on lawn chairs or blankets with beverages, including the signature honeysuckle vodka and watermelon drink, from the cash bars in addition to catering services. Due to the sun’s rays on stage, hosts graciously opened the Idea House (normally a ticketed attraction) for beverage-free viewing during Lane’s heat-induced intermission.

True to its name, signature biscuits were provided after the Sunday program, which is set to run through August 25 with hour-long sets from Brett Eldredge, Holly Williams, Elizabeth Cook, Jana Kramer, Sarah Darling, The Farm, and DUGAS.
