Public Square Park was packed with natives and tourist Thursday night as the Lightning 100 hosted mainstream artist, Mat Kearney and Johnnyswim.
Mat Kearney is a former Nashville resident and a former roommate to Abner Ramirez of Johnnyswim. The two share a fun history. Mat Kearney introduced Abner Ramirez to his wife and the other half of Johnnyswim, Amanda Sudano. Johnnyswim performed the spring concert at Lipscomb last semester as well.
Two other local artists performed on Thursday night, Will Hope and Amanda Shires each played short sets before Kearney and Johnnyswim.
