Key to the City
I've lived in Nashville for over 12 years now, and last night was one of the best uniquely Nashville nights I've ever had. Apparently the key to getting the most out of a city is to know the right people.
My friend, Bill, called me last night about 8:00 and asked if I wanted to go to a writer's night at The Bluebird Cafe. His musical hero, Big Al Anderson (another site), one of Musician magazine's top 100 guitar players and a former member of NRBQ, was part of a round hosted by Bob DiPiero (Brooks & Dunn's "You Can't Take the Honky Tonk Out of the Girl") and which included Leslie Satcher (LeAnn Womack's "A Man With 18 Wheels") and Tony Mullins (Kenny Chesney's "How Forever Feels"). Even if you're not a country music fan, you'll recognize their hits.
We were treated to about 3 hours of music and funny insider stories, including DiPiero's new Christmas Song about quarrel between Rudolph and Santa about dragging Santa's fat ass around the world. You can catch DiPiero on "Live at The Bluebird" on Turner South with another writing giant Gary Burr on 12/29 at 11:00p ET. Also, be on the lookout for Tia Sillers (LeAnn Womack's "I Hope You Dance") on 12/22 at 11:00, too. I got to sit in on an interview with her in a songwriting class, and she's really super.
