The Shotgun Seat kicked off its new series “The Hang” last Thursday (Nov. 10), featuring CJ Solar. Solar and a group of friends and collaborators, streaming live from the George Dickel Distillery, chatted about everything from movies to bizarre Craigslist encounters. The Baton Rouge native played songs including “Tall Boy” and “Just Another Day In The Country” as well as his Justin Moore cut, “Between You And Me.”

The event is the first in a series hosted by The Shotgun Seat and streamed live from the George Dickel Distillery in Tullahoma, Tennessee.
