“Vibrant, soulful, and energetic music from the heart of Tennessee.”
Singer/songwriters Lily and Anthony Nguyen are the leading members of local Tennessee pop band, The Smoky Nights. Although the husband-wife duo are originally from Wisconsin, The Smoky Nights formed in Cookeville, TN in late 2015. They began as a cover band playing shows at local bars and events, and slowly developed their original style - a fresh and interesting blend of soul, pop, folk, and R&B music that combines guitar, mandolin, & violin with catchy harmonies and hooks.
In early 2019, Lily, Anthony, and violinist Eric Cullins began writing for the band, and wrote 24 original songs in 12 months! Their debut album “Burning Bridges” released everywhere on July 1, 2019. In addition to songwriting, The Smoky Nights played over 200 shows in 2019 – from Texas to Tennessee to Wisconsin – including festivals with an estimated audience of 7000+ people.
