Who is she?
Do you recognize her? What’s her name?
Nancy and I saw her perform at Dierks Bentley’s Whiskey Row on our last morning in Nashville, back on April 25, and she was terrific. I got her name when she came around passing the hat, and I stored it away in my memory. If I’d only put it somewhere safe! I really want to find out who she is so that I can check her website and follow her career.
As I’ve described in the last few posts, Nancy and I had been trying to get down to the honky tonks on Lower Broadway since we got to Nashville. We’d had a lovely time there 11 years ago on our way back from a visiting professor stint at Baylor Law School. The Cumberland River had flooded at the time,
but there was live music everywhere that wasn’t actually under water, and Nancy and I had a wonderful time. Our routine was to stroll down the street until we hit high water, listen to each performer for a bit, pick the best one, and go in for a drink and listen. It’s a wonderful way to spend time.
Our last day in Nashville on this trip was a Sunday, and the flood of COViD-postponed bachelorette parties cascading from a freshet of spring weddings had receded and the streets had been swept. Nancy and I walked down Broadway to the river and around the damage caused by the Christmas bombing. The honky tonks were open and artists were performing, and we walked up and down and sampled. We listened outside at several, then went in to Dierks Bentley’s Whiskey Row, lured by the unnamed singer shown above. We sat at a well-spaced hightop, and listened. She really is good, whoever she is.
Someone must know. Help me out and I’ll be able to share with you the name of an up and comer.
