Southern Roots Movement is debuting LIVE @ Sunset Marquis.
Friday July 11 2014
The newly minted SOUTHERN ROOTS MUSIC series hosted by Deana Carter is set to commence Friday, July 11th from the historic Sunset Marquis in Hollywood. The multi-platinum singer/songwriter grew up in Nashville, Tennessee to a family of accomplished musicians that helped fuel her desire to claim the stage. In the mid 90’s, Carter hit the international scene with the now-classic song “Strawberry Wine” that sparked numerous awards, multi-platinum record sales and sold out shows across from coast to coast. Additionally, her songwriting has brought equaled acclaim when Kenny Chesney released her penned “You and Tequila” sparking numerous accolades and aplomb.
Prior to her move to Los Angeles in 2001, Carter’s second home was the venerable Sunset Marquis. She had always dreamed of bringing a little bit of her southern roots to her new home. Beginning in July, SOUTHERN ROOTS MOVEMENT hosted by Deana Carter will join the existing “LIVE from the Sunset Marquis” music series held on select Friday evenings at the gorgeous “bungalow pool” at the hotel. The series is entering its 4th season and runs from June through October. The series is also filmed for a forthcoming special to be aired later this year.
“After many years of being in LA, I am thrilled to finally be hosting my own ‘in-the-round’ music night at the Sunset Marquis at their summer music series,” says Carter.
It has been a dream of mine, since I moved from my hometown of Nashville, to host this unique style of musical storytelling that we cherish there to this amazing city. I lived at the Sunset Marquis for a time when I came to LA & they are like family to me. I am thrilled to be partnering with them & representing Nashville & ‘the South’ here in LA. As we say back home…..”Y’all come see us!”
