This month’s intimate appearance will be Moore’s first full-band, full-length Nashville concert in more than 10 years.

The past year has seen Moore very active from coast to coast, with appearances in support of Al Green at December’s Kennedy Center Honors, where he delivered a stirring rendition of Green’s “Take Me To The River” with Mavis Staples. The performance followed appearances at the Memphis Music Hall of Fame induction ceremony in November and September visits to multiple media outlets with Nu-Blu. In August, CBS Sunday Morning profiled Sam including coverage of the Stax Museum opening in Memphis. You can also see Sam in the Gregg Allman “All My Friends…” tribute concert airing on AXS TV, HDNet and Magnolia Pictures VOD.
Sam recorded a tribute to the late Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in early 2014. “They Killed A King” pays tribute to his great friend. The song was released in early April to commemorate King’s passing and inspires all to remember and continue the cause of inclusion and equality.
Moore’s last album Overnight Sensational, produced by Randy Jackson, included collaborations with friends and fans like Bruce Springsteen, Jon Bon Jovi, Sting, Vince Gill, Travis Tritt, Paul Rodgers, Eric Clapton, Billy Preston, Billy Gibbons, and Wynonna. The album’s song “You Are So Beautiful” earned him a Grammy nomination. His 1994 collaboration with Conway Twitty on “Rainy Night in Georgia” earned the pair two CMA awards and an ACM nomination. He has also received the coveted NARAS Heroes Award, been inducted into the GRAMMY Hall of Fame for “Soul Man,” earned the ETAM Living Legend Award and received a Pioneer Award from the Rhythm & Blues Foundation.
