Nashville Newcomer Ernie Halter Plays Whiskey Jam Tonight

Though tonight's jam session isn't Ernie Halter's first time on the Whiskey Jam stage, it's also not likely to be his last. Having recently traded in L.A.'s beach scene for Nashville's bar scene, Halter is making himself at home in Music City, and one of his first stops is on tonight's roster for the weekly Whiskey Jam lineup.

Known well for its special guests, tonight's show will be especially impressive. Ernie Halter and previous Deli Musician Of the Month winner Peter Terry & the City Profits have been confirmed as guests, but yet another surprise guest has been announced, and with the event's track record of last-minute announcements (from Grammy winners to contestants on your favorite primetime singing competition), you'll want to get there early.

The Whiskey Jam takes place at 8 pm at Winner's Bar & Grill. To keep up with the Whiskey Jam, follow them on Twitter. -- Brianne Turner

Peter Terry & the City Profits Premiere Video for "The Lawyer"

Peter Terry & the City Profits have been together for only a year, but their sound implies the compatibility of a band that has been together for a decade. With a knack for smart lyrics, graceful melodies, and an effective appreciation of how much elegance a cello can add to a PG-13 lyric, every member serves a function that unifies Peter Terry and his City Profits as a band carving out their own musical niche.

Originally from Indiana, the four-piece recorded their debut album, I Am Jackson., in Bloomington and released it independently late last year. Intended originally to be a five-track EP, the album grew from an idea to an 11-track introduction to the music scene and has effectively introduced the band as one of the newest additions the Music City circuit.

While describing his collective as a "young band," Peter Terry admitted plainly, "We don't know what we need or what we want... but we know what our sound is." From tracks like "Parker," "Elisabeth Shue," and "Piece Of Art," the band show that they are not afraid of versatility. Though unsure of what they need or want, Peter Terry & the City Profits' commitment to their music is unwavering and bound together by the band's humble confidence in their talent and an allegiance to showing you just how much rock a cello can add to even the sweetest love song.

Premiered on July 4th, Peter Terry & the City Profits also proved their allegiance to America and facial hair in their new video for "The Lawyer." -- Brianne Turner
