650 AM WSM Launches 24/7 Americana Streaming Station

650 AM WSM, the longtime radio home of the Grand Ole Opry, has launched Route 650, a new 24/7 Americana music streaming station available at wsmonline.com and via the station’s mobile app.

In addition to feature music from top Americana artists including Jason Isbell, Margo Price, and John Prine, the streaming station will also feature the Americana-based weekly show Whiskey Wednesdays, hosted by Americana duo Wild Ponies.

The 24/7 streaming station follows the 2016 terrestrial launch of of the Americana-focused show Route 650, hosted by Eric Marcum, which airs weeknights at 6 p.m. CT on 650AM and at wsmonline.com.

“Americana is beyond just a music genre, it’s a community of artists that have come together to create an outlet for great music to be heard,” said Marcum. “WSM is honored to have created and launched ROUTE 650 – our 24/7 Americana music streaming station.”

“In the process of planning this new digital station, it became clear that what our terrestrial ROUTE 650 show has become is largely the embodiment of what we envision the 24/7 stream to be, while also giving a tip of the hat to its genesis in WSM-AM,” remarked Chris Kulick, WSM General Manager.

As part of the station’s launch week programming, listeners can tune in for special behind-the-scenes interviews, content, and performances from the 18th Annual Americana Music Festival and Conference.
