So since Im about 3 weeks behind blogging, I'm going to be doing a lot of skipping around. Sorry about that!
If you are ever planning a trip to Nashville and love the country music scene, this is a MUST do! The places is called the Bluebird Cafe.
My friend Stacy invited me to join her for a benefit concert there on Jan 6th... at first all she said was that it was going to be Amy Grant and friends. Heck I love Amy Grant so why not???
2 days before, we found out who the friends were that were joining Amy...
Dan Tyminski (from the Union station as well as the singer of I am a Man of Constant Sorrow from O Brother Where Art Thou)
Natalie Hemby (song writer.. she wrote White Liar)
Mindy Smith (up and coming singer/songwriter)
This was the coolest show! They all sat in a circle in the middle of this small cafe and one at a time played songs. Nothing rehearsed.. very casual and laid back. And no talking from the audience like a normal concert. The Bluebird is a place where anybody who is anybody in the industry whether it be singers or song writers come to play.
The pictures kind of suck because it was dark and I just had my blackberry but I was able to catch a few of the people...
