Sound of Nashville Press Event & Logan Mize Concert (11th Sep 2019, Cologne)

Quite surprisingly, there seems to be a quite sudden competition about the promotion and management of country music concerts in tours in Germany this year. After the Country 2 Country 2019 in Berlin, Semmel Concerts found the Sound of Nashville concert series, which feels to be a very clever marketing label for the genre. In addition, they brought the Country Music Week to Germany with season tickets in the different cities where the different acts will play. Thus, I was very much looking forward to take part at a press event at the Semmel Concerts Cologne offices on 11th September 2019, which also included a show by Logan Mize.

In addition to the pictures in this posting, there is a 151 major size picture gallery in the Concert Galleries.


Logan Mize – About The Artist

Logan Mize is country music artists and songwriter, who is originally from Clearwater in Kansas. Though he is an active musician since 2000, his first album, Logan Mize, is as of 2009. He signed is initial record deal in 2010. He overall released three albums so far. The second one, Nobody in Nashville just made it to the Top 50 in the US Country album charts and placed 15th as peak positions in the US Heat Album charts. In 2015, he released his first EP Pawn Shop Guitar, which had two comparably successful songs. Though it “just” placed 49th as peak in the US Country Airplays, his 2019 song Better Off Gone was a significant boost to Mize’s reputation and presence in the country music scene.


Logan Mize in Cologne

Before the acoustic set, there was a photo shoot with Logan Mize in Cologne’s old town around the Heumarkt square. It was amazing to see how friendly Mize took over that task, and interacted with the press people. Likely, the nicest place for the photo shootings was the Willy Ostermann Fountain, a place which reminds of one of the city’s most important writers and performers of carnival music.





Logan Mize Acoustic Set

After the photo shoot, Mize gave a four set acoustic set in the Semmel office. He started the set with Better Off Gone, followed by the so-far unreleased Prairieville, a song about a fictive town in Kansas, similar to the one he grew up in. Finally, he played Only This Town. Due to a late arrival of one journalist, he added Sunflowers. He was accompanied by his percussion player Jimmy. Amazing to see an artist who has a triple digit number of million streams in that atmosphere.








Sound of Nashville Press Event – My View

It was great to see Logan Mize in that promoting the Sound of Nashville series and the Country Music Week (which will rather be a Country Music Month at its German debut) in the Semmel Concerts offices. Mize was just another proof that country music is straight, handmade and the artists are very close to their fans and people. A fascinating event in a very friendly and intimate atmosphere, which definitely
