5/20/13 Sheryl Crow & The Fisk Jubilee Singers Music City Center
Day two of the grand opening of Nashville’s new Convention Center downtown . I checked the place out yesterday and it is BIG. I think day one was a great success and I loved the use of all the great live music Nashville has to offer throughout the whole opening. From small duos in the hallways to the Symphony playing the Grand Ballroom. I got catch a little bit of Music City Blues and the Soul Choir as well as a hear Phil Vassar sing the JoDee Messina song he penned “Bye Bye”
5/21/13 Guitar Man tribute to Jerry Reed 3rd and Lindsley
I remember Jerry Reed as a little girl and how funny he was but as a grown up I’ve discovered he was one heck of a guitar player too. I became friends with his daughter a few years ago and Iknow how proud she was of her dad.
If you read this blog on a regular basis (Mom, Melissa, Keith maybe) you know this is my new favourite band and Music City Roots is pretty much always my go to for a Wednesday night.
I am not exactly sure what this will be but I have tickets for Saturday night. I know it has something to do with Cirque De Soleil and it involves the Nashville Symphony so I am pretty sure it will be awesome.
Etta is getting some well deserved recognition these days. She’s a powerhouse of a vocalist who you have probably heard many times as a background singer. Friday at 3rd and Lindsley is a great chance to see & hear her in the forefront.
I fell head over heels with Street Corner Symphony and acappella music watching the Sing Off with Ben Folds (who I also learned to really appreciate watching that show). I also think East Nashville’s own Alanna Royal is the bomb and I haven’t had a chance to catch her live yet. Take a chair or blanket and prepare to have a very enjoyable afternoon.
5/23-26/13 Darrell Scott, Tim O’Brien, Kevin Welch Jamminathippiejacks.com
Okay this is a weekend long event and it’s not exactly in Nashville but the lineup is awesome and it’s the best time of year to go camping in this part of the world. I hope Darrell Scott is playing on Sunday, amazing songwriter, instrumentalist…wow!
