Jacob’s Well is a new venue in Old Hickory Village. It is a really cool Christian Coffeehouse with a great sound system and performance area and very much a listening room.

Casey Kelly is a two-time Grammy-nominated songwriter for “Soon” (recorded by Tanya Tucker) and “Anyone Who Isn’t Me Tonight” (recorded by Kenny Rogers/Dottie West). Kelly also penned hits “Cowboy Rides Away” recorded by George Strait (and the name of George’s current and final tour!) and the “That Road Not Taken” (Joe Diffie). Other hits include: “Only Game In Town” (America) and “Somewhere Down the Line” (T.G. Sheppard). A headlining artist upon the release of his two solo albums (“Casey Kelly” and “For Sale”) on Elektra Records, Casey started out as a sideman with artists such as Tom Rush and toured for years, sharing the stage with artists including The Neville Brothers, America, the Beach Boys, BB King, Boz Scaggs, and Loggins & Messina. Casey will be joined by Grammy Award-winning vocalist Leslie Ellis who  moved from California to Nashville in 2003, after a successful career as a jingle singer and as a vocalist for Sony Music where she worked with the legendary Walter Afanasieff. In Nashville, her focus has been on co-writing with the great writers of Music Row and since 2004 performing live with hit writer Casey Kelly. As a writer, Leslie’s “The Flyer Song” was adopted by the US Navy and made into a video as a tribute to the troops and their families. (Listen/buy. More bio.)
