1.29 Music - The Bluebird Café

Bestest Friend and I are embarking on a new blog project. Each day of the month we will post a picture on a pre-determined theme and write a little something about it. The theme for the twenty-ninth day of each month is "Music."
***************************




Last Thursday I had the pleasure of attending the six o’clock show at the world famous Bluebird Café in Nashville.  The experience was unlike any experience I’ve ever had with music. We almost didn’t get in since there are so few seats available, but we were the last people they let in the door and we practically sat on the musicians’ laps.  This is Dave Gibson, of the Gibson/Miller Band and songwriter of memorable songs such as “Queen of Memphis” most famously performed by Confederate Railroad and “Ships that Don’t Come In” that went to the charts when Joe Diffie sang it.  There was something surreal  about sitting the same room with Gibson and three other amazing songwriters as they did acoustic versions of their songs in the city that made country (with all due apologies to Bakersfield).  

So if you ever find yourself in Nashville and you want an intimate setting to hear songwriters both perform their biggest songs and try out new material on a forgiving audience, head on down to the Bluebird. I can guarantee that you will not be disappointed.

  1. Not to mention it's where Garth was discovered. He had been turned down based on his demos until a record company saw his performance at the Bluebird. I am so jealous of you right now!
