Sam Lewis at The Burlap Room

September 28th · Smithville, Tennessee

Americana Roots Rocker Sam Lewis brings his authentic bluesy vibe to The Burlap Room on Saturday, September 28th. Distinctive and Clever song writer that will melt your soul.

Sam Lewis has collaborated with everyone from Leon Russell to The Wood Brothers. Chris Stapleton dubbed him “a modern Townes Van Zandt”. He’s often labeled with some form of the word ‘soulful’ (some have even compared his voice to molasses), Lewis’ style meets at a juncture of many different genres however there’s something indescribably different and with his most recent works (Loversity), he’s discovered what most musicians spend lifetimes working for; the place where feel-good music meets vital social commentary.

Join us on the grounds of Bert Driver Nursery located near the shores of Center Hill Lake in Smithville, Tennessee.

Family Friendly, Food Trucks, Local Craft Beer, Pet Friendly, Local Artist, Local Farm Products, Fire Pits, Sand Box all located at Tennessee’s Largest Beer Garden… The Burlap Room!
