THE song you absolutely cannot miss this week -- Matthew’s “Gem of the Week” -- is from LADY GAGA. Sometime between 9:00-9:15, we’ll go back to her debut album for a truly mind-blowing performance of one of her biggest hits. Just Gaga and a piano. It’s one part Tchaikovsky, one part Freddie Mercury and 100% Lady Gaga. Seriously, you’ve gotta hear this one.

We’ve got ALANIS, JIMMY EAT WORLD and ONE REPUBLIC all in the first 15 minutes of the show.

ED SHEERAN
COUNTING CROWS
SUGAR RAY
also coming in the first hour.

HOUR 2 starts with an amazing stripped back performance from CARRIE UNDERWOOD featuring some incredible fiddle/violin.

We’ll play one of the most iconic “Unplugged” songs from the 90s that became even more popular than the original version of the song right around 8:10-8:15.

Got a great piano version of Mr. Know It All from KELLY CLARKSON — her voice sounds incredible on this track. Just her, piano and some BGVs.

Also in the 8 o’clock hour you’ll hear, HOOTIE, ALL AMERICAN REJECTS, FREDDIE MERCURY and a really cool vibey version of TAYLOR SWIFT’s Delicate.

HOUR 3 starts with a really special solo performance of Titanium — just SIA and a piano.

HALSEY takes on the JONAS BROTHERS — you’re gonna love her cover of Sucker a little after 9:00.

You’ll also hear ED SHEERAN with an acoustic (solo) version of his latest “Beautiful People,” a piano and strings version of Amazing from AEROSMITH and one of the three most requested songs ever on the Acoustic Sunrise “If You Could Only See” from TONIC.

In the 10 o’clock hour you’ll hear LIFEHOUSE from the Mix Lounge, FIVE FOR FIGHTING and a great cover of THE WEEKND by CHARLIE PUTH. Plus DAVE MATTHEWS BAND, a super cool chill version of Grenade from BRUNO MARS and a solo version of THE CHAINSMOKERS Closer by HALSEY.

Plus throughout the show we’ve got ARIANA GRANDE, COUNTING CROWS, BRUNO MARS, ANDY GRAMMER, MAROON 5 and DEMI LOVATO.
