Emmalee and Nightmasters at Downtown @ Sundown May 21
Local bands perform as tie in to Hunt Local Week
The first artist to perform Friday evening is Emmalee along with her band. Emmalee was part of Kelly Clarkson’s Team on The Voice in 2020. Her debut single, Fearless, captures the heart of her love for pop music while simultaneously conveying a message of hope and empowerment. Find Your Fire showcases her edgier side and Cover reveals the vulnerability she possesses in her songwriting. Emmalee’s songwriting and vocal artistry demonstrate her versatility. She released her first EP at the young age of fifteen. Emmalee’s artistry aspires to connect people from diverse backgrounds.
A well-known local favorite, Nightmasters, is a blues band that covers the entire spectrum of blues from traditional to progressive along with Southern rock, rock, funk, pop and a select dab of country. Nightmasters is a brotherhood of seasoned, multi-talented performers. This group has performed at middle Tennessee and northern Kentucky events like Rivers and Spires, Pickin on the Porch, the Franklin Wine Festival and Red, White and Brewfest.
Local food trucks will also be set up before and during the shows. Chick’nCone, Driving You Donuts, Burgasm, and Kadi’s Tacos & More are all expected to be on site. Additionally, beer and other beverages will be for sale with all proceeds benefiting our featured non-profit, United Way of the Greater Clarksville Region.
“We estimated about 2,000 attendees at our last concert with Parmalee. I hope the community will come out and show the same amount of love and support for our local talent. We are very excited to host two talented acts as another way to support Hunt and Shop Local Clarksville Week,” said Downtown Commons Event Manager Elizabeth Quinton.
Main Street will be blocked off between Second and Third streets beginning at 4:30 p.m. to make room for the food trucks.
