Music City Christmas is a heartwarming holiday concert in the style of legendary musicians Floyd Cramer and Chet Atkins and the Nashville sound. The concert features Floyd Cramer’s grandson Jason Coleman on piano and Chet Atkin’s niece Meagan Taylor on guitar.
FLOYD CRAMER AND CHET ATKINS. Two legends at their instruments, two giants in the music industry. Their names have become synonymous with the “Nashville Sound” they pioneered as
well as their unique methods of playing the piano and guitar. In this concert, Music City Christmas, Floyd’s grandson, pianist Jason Coleman, and Chet’s niece, guitarist Meagan Taylor, bring their
legendary forerunners’ signature style to a heartwarming lineup of the most timeless holiday hits of yesterday and today.
From a young age, it was evident that JASON COLEMAN had inherited his grandfather’s “slip note” touch at the piano. Though he was only 12 years old when Floyd passed away, the close relationship they shared formed the foundation upon which Jason built his own career in music. After making his Grand Ole Opry debut at age 17, Jason has spent his career in the studio and on stage, producing a collection of his own piano albums and touring across the country in concerts that pay tribute to his grandfather’s enduring legacy and signature piano style.
Growing up in the family of a guitar legend, MEAGAN TAYLOR was surrounded by a heritage of music – but it wasn’t until she was 18 that she first picked up a guitar and turned to her “Uncle
Chester” for help in the months before he passed away. In the years since Meagan has continued learning her uncle’s distinctive fingerstyle guitar from his closest friends and fans. She has recorded a guitar album of her own as well as two collaborations with Jason.
