Opry Moment: Marcus and Levi Hummon

Marcus and Levi Hummon perform together on the Grand Ole Opry.

Singer-songwriter Levi Hummon recently welcomed his father, songwriter Marcus Hummon, to join him during a performance at the Grand Ole Opry. The performance marked a sweet father/son moment, as Marcus will be inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame on Oct. 14.

“It’s always an honor taking the stage at The Grand Ol Opry. It’s even more special when you get to bring your dad up to celebrate the fact he’s going to be inducted in the Nashville Songwriter Hall Of Fame,” Levi said. “I embrace the fact that my dad had a huge impact on me as a songwriter and an artist. For me its a family affair and I’m blessed and want to cherish every single moment.”

Levi performed “Drop of Us,” while Marcus offered a rendition of “State I’m In” on piano. Together they offered a rendition of “Cowboy Take Me Away,” recorded by the Dixie Chicks and co-written by Marcus.

Levi’s recent song, “Change My Life,” has earned more than 6 million streams on Spotify. He will perform at revered Nashville venue Exit/In on Sept. 5.
