Saturday, 5 – 6 pm
Route 650 is a roots inspired Americana, Folk, and Bluegrass music show airing Saturdays from 4-6pm on WSM. Take a ride along Route 650 as we listen to the newest Americana songs and educate ourselves on the early artists that inspired the sound of today’s Americana music. Get up close and personal with in-studio guests and tune-in for special acoustic performances!
Eric Marcum has been a member of the WSM staff since his first day in Nashville in 2010. After graduating from Purdue University, Eric and his wife Carly, plus their two children Rowan and Rhys, now call Old Hickory home. During his free time, Eric enjoys the local music scene and cuisine of Nashville. You can find him hanging out in the backyard of the local record shops, at a concert, or sitting on a patio enjoying a local craft brew. You may have seen or heard Eric in the past as a member of the promotions team or on Coffee Country and Cody alongside Bill, Charlie, and Kelly. Now you can join him every Saturday starting at 5pm on Route 650. It’s the crossroads of Americana, Bluegrass, and Country as we enjoy an hour of music discovery, both new and old.
We want to hear from you! Send us your favorite Americana, Folk, or Bluegrass band or song and we’ll try to play them on-air!
