Today, we're thrilled to share a mini-concert with Tré Burt from the stage of AMERICANAFEST in Nashville.

Burt's debut album, Caught It From The Rye, was released by John Prine's Oh Boy Records at the very beginning of 2020. Burt was hailed as a rising star — and then, as you might recall, touring and much of the music industry temporarily ground to a halt. But Tré Burt didn't. For a songwriter who thoughtfully documents what he sees happening in the world, 2020 — while challenging — was rich with inspiration. His latest album, You, Yeah, You, builds on his previous work as he grows ever more sophisticated, empathetic and razor-sharp as a storyteller and musical philosopher. In this session, we're thrilled to present a mini concert with Tré Burt from last year's AMERICANAFEST in Nashville.
