Root 650, hosted by WSM’s Eric Marcum, is a roots inspired Americana, Folk, and Bluegrass music show airing from 6-7pm weekdays on WSM. Take a ride with Eric along Root 650 as we listen to the newest Americana songs and educate ourselves on the early artists that inspired the sound of today’s Americana music.

Eric Marcum


Eric Marcum has been a member of the WSM staff since his first day in Nashville in 2010. After graduating from Purdue University, Eric, his wife Carly, and their two fur children, Mackey and Delilah, now call East Nashville home. During his free time, Eric enjoys the local music and cuisine. You can find him hanging out in the backyard of the local record shops watching a show or sitting on a patio enjoying a local craft brew. You may have seen or heard Eric in the past, either on location as a member of the promotions team or on the air filling in to help produce remote broadcasts. Now he’s taking to the airwaves for his own show on 650 AM WSM!
