Grammy-nominated, platinum-selling singer-songwriter Shawn Mullins, best known for his 1998 Top 10 hit “Lullaby,” is set to perform at Nashville's City Winery on Sunday, April 9 at 8 p.m.
The 49-year-old Atlanta-based musician, who crafts folk rock, adult alternative, and Americana tunes, released his most recent full-length, My Stupid Heart, back in October 2015 via the newly merged Sugar Hill and Rounder Records. The album, which deals with the failure and heartbreak of Mullins’ third marriage, is supported by its title track as well as stand-out selections like “The Great Unknown,” “It All Comes Down To Love,” and “Ferguson.”
Mullins released three albums - Better Days (1992), Big Blue Sky (1994), Eggshells (1996) - before dropping his first release for a major label, Soul’s Core, in July 1998. The album, which dropped on Columbia Records, was met with critical acclaim thanks to the chart-topping, Grammy-nominated hit single “Lullaby.” Soul’s Core also included a second single, titled “Shimmer,” as well as a cover of the Kris Kristofferson-penned "Sunday Mornin' Comin' Down.”
Released in 1998, Soul's Core marked his first album for a major label, Columbia Records; it also signaled his critical breakthrough, as the single "Lullaby" became a chart-topping, Grammy-nominated hit. The album eventually went platinum.
Eight years later, in February 2006, Mullins released 9th Ward Pickin’ Parlor, his first full-length for Vanguard Records. The album, recorded in Atlanta and New Orleans, was anchored by the AAA/Americana No. 1 hit “Beautiful Wreck.” It also included a second single titled “Find Love.”
Tickets, $18, $20, $22, $25, are available online. Doors open at 6 p.m. City Winery is located at 609 Lafayette Street in Nashville, Tennessee. For more information, visit Shawn Mullins’ website and City Winery's website.
