Artist info: Heidi and Ryan
Founded in 2008, Heidi and Ryan’s sound stays true to their eastern Kentucky roots, yet they bring their own contemporary twist to whatever they do. At the forefront, lead vocalist and fiddle player, Heidi Greer, accompanied by her husband, Ryan, who plays guitar and sings harmony, put their heart and soul into their music. Heidi’s breathtaking vocals have been compared to that of Sonya Isaacs and Allison Krauss. And while that certainly puts her in esteemed vocal company, the nuances and timbre in her note selection is distinctly her own. Rounding out the band are Matt Cromer on Upright Bass and Nathan Adcock on Cajón. The combination makes for a very earthy band voice that blends perfectly.

Artist info: Bruce Sudano
Bruce Sudano has had his hand in some of the 20th century’s biggest hits, sung by megatalents from Michael and Jermaine Jackson to Dolly Parton and Donna Summer, his late wife. At this point, he could easily rest on his musical laurels. Instead, he recorded an album about life right here, right now, in this 21st Century World. And he filled it with hard questions, some well-aimed finger pointing and poignant observations about the human experience — for better and worse.
Sudano had co-founded the band Alive N Kickin’ in 1968; in 1970, James wrote and produced their top-10 hit, “Tighter, Tighter.” Five years after leaving that band, Sudano co-founded Brooklyn Dreams. That same year, 1977, he met Summer, who began writing with the band. They penned “Take It to the Zoo” for the Thank God It’s Friday film soundtrack, then the band appeared as the Planotones in the film, American Hot Wax. They hit No. 4 with Summer duetting on “Heaven Knows,” and in 1979, Summer and the band wrote the No. 1 pop and R&B hit “Bad Girls.” It became the title song to the most popular album of her career.
In 1980, Sudano released his first solo album, which contained “Starting Over Again,” written with Summer about his parents’ divorce. Dolly Parton turned it into a No. 1 country hit. Fifteen years later, Reba McEntire took it to No. 19. In 1985, Sudano co-wrote the Grammy-nominated Michael and Jermaine Jackson duet, “Tell Me I'm Not Dreaming (Too Good to Be True).” After years spent managing Summer’s career, as well as playing and singing in her band, Sudano released another solo album, Rainy Day Soul. That 2004 release gave him three top 10 adult contemporary hits, and New Music Weekly’s Adult Contemporary Artist of the Year award. “It's Her Wedding Day,” a track from his third solo album, earned him the 2009 New Music Weekly Adult Contemporary Song of the Year award.

Slow smoked pork BBQ will be available when the doors open at 6:30 pm EST. We don't sell the BBQ, but only suggest you tip the smoke master if you choose to eat with us. The average tip is $5 a plate since he spends about 8 hrs keeping the fire and smoke going. We don't provide drinks so be sure to BYOB or drink of choice. Personal coolers that fit under your seat are fine.
Of course you must be over 21 yrs old to drink alcohol. Also please drink responsibly, or have a designated driver. If we notice a guest on The Station's property who appears to be impaired we reserve the right to intervene in order to stop them from driving. We'll be happy to help make any necessary arrangements to assure you get home safe.
- Should we bring our own chairs? No, we have plenty of seating.
- Is it ok to BYOB or bring in small cooler? Yes if over 21 yrs old feel free to BYOB or drink of choice, and bringing in a small cooler is fine. Just drink responsibly or have a designated driver, and do not bring alcohol if under the age of 21.
- Can we bring chips, snacks, or side dishes to share? Yea sure it's fine, and appreciated, but not required.
- What's the address? 4206 Miser Station Road, Louisville TN 37777.
- Do you have a restroom? Yes we have an indoor restroom.
- Is smoking or vaping allowed? Smoking and vaping are allowed only outside and away from folks eating on the deck.
- Can we bring the kids? Keep in mind some folks bring adult beverages, and The Station's certainly not a bar environment, but rather a listening room. We must respect folks paying to listen to the music, so kids should be 12 yrs or older to attend our shows. That said we're reasonable folks, and of course you know your kids best, so contact us to request an under 12 exception.
