Charlie Worsham

When/Where: Thursday, June 5th, Chevy Riverfront Stage

Who: A Mississippi-born, music-school-educated singer-songwriter with a warm, gentle voice and chugging guitar chops

Why You Can't Miss Him: Worsham came to Nashville via Berklee College of Music — not the most traditional path for an aspiring country star, but a testament to his commitment to keen musicianship and a solid, studied approach to songwriting that's apparent on his 2013 debut, Rubberband. Currently on tour with fellow guitar virtuoso Brad Paisley, he layers his performances with both tender, acoustic moments and swinging rompers that showcase tasteful instrumentation – though he's not shy about letting a roaring solo rip occasionally, too. Here's betting he lets his fingers do some talking Thursday at the Riverfront.
