Co-producers John Heithaus and multi-GrammyÂ® winner Kevin McKendree revisit STAGE FRIGHT to reinvent the avant-garde LP of one of rock’s most important groups. STAGE FRIGHT at 50 – An Ovation from Nashville presents an eclectic 16-piece ensemble featuring original performances inspired by America’s veterans and award-winning and GrammyÂ® nominated artists, as well as outstanding young singers representing the next generation of emerging hitmakers of Nashville.
