"I've been a fan of WHO KNEW from the start. I spoke at the very first one and have watched the series evolve in a very exciting way. So when Tom Truitt approached me with the idea for this particular event it felt like a natural fit. What better way to celebrate the 25th anniversary of R.E.M.'s memorable album Out of Time. The timing for this couldn't have been better," said Bertis Downs, attorney for R.E.M..

"I saw R.E.M. for the first time in 1983. It was one of those mind-blowing shows that stuck with me forever. I’m thrilled to bring this once-in-a-lifetime experience to Nashville’s WHO KNEW community,” adds Tom Truitt, WHO KNEW Founder.
