Puckett’s Gro. & Restaurant in Downtown Chattanooga has announced a monthly concert series in partnership with country radio station 107.9 Nash Icon and the nationally syndicated morning radio show ‘Ty, Kelly and Chuck.’ 

On the first Friday of each month, a different artist will hold a special show on the Puckett’s stage as part of the Ty, Kelly and Chuck Spotlight Series, and 107.9 Nash Icon will be present at each performance.  

“107.9 NASH Icon is excited to partner with Puckett’s on the Ty, Kelly and Chuck Spotlight Series," said Dodger, program director at 107.9 Nash Icon.  "Our morning show, ‘Ty, Kelly and Chuck,’ is plugged into the Nashville music scene and take pride in exposing up-and-coming country artists.  The same musicians you hear featured on Ty, Kelly and Chuck’s 10 Minute Tune will take part in this fun, monthly series. You no longer have to go to Nashville to see the rising stars in country music, because we’re bringing them to you here in Chattanooga.” 

The next Ty, Kelly and Chuck Spotlight Series show will be Friday, July 7, featuring Courtney Daly, followed by The Young Fables on Aug. 4, and Kayla Woodson on Sept. 1. All shows will begin at 9 p.m., and there is no cover.  

“Live music has always been an integral part of who we are at Puckett’s, and this partnership allows us to showcase even more fantastic, local artists and provide our guests with memorable experiences,” said Max Stephenson, general manager at Puckett’s Chattanooga.  

Those who attend Spotlight Series performances will have the opportunity to enter to win a giveaway package with various prizes.
