Skyville is an artist development and publishing company rooted in Nashville, Tennessee, owned by the Music City’s 30+ year industry icons, Paul Worley and Wally Wilson. Paul is a legendary record producer, musician, and record executive who has discovered and developed household names such as The Dixie Chicks, Martina McBride, Big & Rich, The Band Perry, Lady Antebellum, and, well, we could go on and on... He has won five Grammy awards and many CMA and ACM awards, plus countless BMI and ASCAP awards to boot.
Wally Wilson is first and foremost an accomplished hit songwriter as well as a publisher, record producer, and musician. He has received numerous ASCAP and BMI awards and has written songs for and worked with many legendary artists including Amy Grant, Vince Gill, Joan Baez, Patty Loveless, Joe Cocker, and countless others. He began his musical adventure as a honky-tonk piano player in Texas— and worked with many R&B legends such as Jimmy Reed, Bo Diddley, and Gatemouth Brown.
Skyville was formed as a vehicle for these gentlemen to do what they have always done: discover world-class talent and assist them in realizing their dreams.
The Live experience began at a tiny beer-joint down the street from Skyville when some of their understudies decided to get together and play an intimate show. Wally called the local watering hole and reserved two hours of playing time for the artists. Posters went up, emails went out, the lights came on, and the first Skyville Live was born.
Since the bar only held about a hundred people, having a packed house wasn’t an issue. The sound system was great, the music was phenomenal, and the energy in the room was intoxicating. Before the bar was able to close shop, the bands booked their next show. Thus began the series of intimate concerts known as Skyville Live.
It quickly became apparent that the venue was too confining for what Skyville Live was becoming. Booking agents, managers, and a few of Nashville’s biggest celebrities caught word of the shows and wanted to join in. That’s when Wally decided to bring it back home to Skyville and broadcast it live, online, and in a way that was interactive for mentors, heroes, and fans alike.
