For the majority of the summer, O'Charley's on Evansville's east side has been hosting a summer-long series giving you the chance to see and hear several up-and-coming songwriters from Nashville and other cities with the next one scheduled for this Thursday, September 14th.

O'Charley's Summer Songwriter's Cafe

The Summer Songwriter's Cafe was started by O'Charley's back in 2020 as a virtual series since everyone was stuck at home and couldn't go anywhere thanks to the pandemic, and featured artists such as Lee Brice, Tenille Arts, and others. The series has continued post-pandemic at locations around the country giving the previously mentioned up-and-coming singer/songwriters a chance to perform and possibly gain a new fan in you.

This week's artist is singer-songwriter, Sarah Darling. The Iowa native has taken her unique blend of country and pop around the world with over 90 appearances on the Grand Ole Opry stage along with performances at CMA Fest, the BBC Radio 2 Stage, the British Country Music Festival, and the British Summertime Festival supporting Bonnie Raitt, James Taylor, Paul Simon, Carrie Underwood, Scotty McCreery, and more.

She's released five full-length albums and multiple singles, including a #1 on the UK Country, and over 20 million streams. Her latest release is a cover of the Bob Marley classic, "Three Little Birds."

See her Sept 14 on the patio at O'Charley's on Evansville's east side.

10 Artists We Totally Underestimated

Oliver Anthony is country music's newest underdog, but he's just next in line on a list of hitmakers that fans, the media and the music industry scoffed at.

This list of 10 artists we underestimated includes at least five legitimate superstars with dozens of No. 1 hits, two American Idol finalists and country music's first real viral sensation. Each has proven themselves worthy in ways nobody saw coming.

Every Country Music Hit to Top the Billboard Hot 100 Chart

In 2023, three songs have hit No. 1 on both the all-genre Billboard Hot 100 and Billboard's Country Airplay chart. Before that, just 20 songs had accomplished this. Here's the full list of those songs, including the five artists who have done it twice.

Oliver Anthony is the latest to accomplish this feat: In August 2023, his song "Rich Men North of Richmond" debuted at No. 1 on both charts.
