MURFREESBORO, Tenn. — Acclaimed songwriter Angaleena Presley will be the next guest artist on “Wired In,” the new 4K webcast series from WMOT/Roots Radio 89.5 FM and Aurora, Nashville's premiere online ultra high-definition streaming production studio.
The show is set for 5 p.m. CST on Tuesday, April 25, and can be viewed live at WMOT.org, station streaming video partner Vuhaus.com and on AuroraNashville.com.
“Wired In” offers audiences worldwide a chance to sit in on intimate shows and interviews hosted by WMOT Program Director Jessie Scott. The show’s guest artists are leading lights in roots and Americana music, pulled from the playlist of WMOT, a 100,000-watt roots/Americana radio station serving Nashville and Middle Tennessee from the College of Media and Entertainment at Middle Tennessee State University.
The shows so far have featured banjo great Bela Fleck and Yep Rock recording artists The Stray Birds.
Angaleena Presley is one of the most intelligent and socially observant songwriters in today’s neo-classic country branch of the Americana movement. The rural Kentucky native draws from her upbringing and the true stories of a troubled region to create songs in the tradition of Loretta Lynn and Dolly Parton.
“I’m a feminist who fights with love, a kill ‘em with kindness person – but also a kill ‘em with honesty,” she says in her official bio. “ The most powerful weapon we have is honesty and vulnerability: showing your weakness and your truth is the greatest weapon we have.”
Sustaining members of WMOT are eligible to attend “Wired In” shows in person in downtown Nashville.
About WMOT/Roots Radio
WMOT-FM 89.5, Middle Tennessee State University’s flagship public radio station founded in 1969, made the biggest, boldest leap in its history in September 2016 when it dedicated itself to an all Americana music format. Branded as “Roots Radio,” the initiative is a partnership with the music experts and on-air talent of Music City Roots, the Franklin-based weekly variety show that reaches the nation on radio and public television. At last, the Nashville region has a powerful radio station (100,000 watts) dedicated to the music most deeply connected to Music City’s legacy: classic country music, bluegrass, singer/songwriter, folk, soul, R&B and old-school rock ’n’ roll.
