    The live music on some flights is actually part of the “Live at 35” in-air concert series, which Southwest first launched in 2011, and will feature Warner Music Nashville artists.

    Atlantic Records/WMN musician Devin Dawson performed aboard a recent flight from Nashville to Philadelphia and uploaded the video to social media.


    “That was a little bit different than what I usually do every day,” he told Billboard after landing.

    Dawson also told the magazine the concerts can help soothe those with a fear of flying.

    “I hope that something like this is just a cool surprise for some that helps them forget about their everyday woes, and I’ll just play a couple songs to make them smile,” he said.

    While some Southwest customers might hope their flight features one of the pop-up concerts, Twitter users seemed overwhelmingly against live music on flights.
