Here is one of the best guitar players I have met in Nashville. I was going to the Back Alley Diner in downtown Nashville one evening to see a guy named Johnathan New. I was looking for people to play my NashvilleEar.com Songwriter Stage held each week at the Gibson Fontanel stage.
This tail-kicking song was played by Bex Marshall at Ground Zero Blues Club in Clarksdale, Mississippi during Juke Joint Festival 2014. Bex rightly tore the place up! Shot on location by Reed R. Radcliffe / TripleRPhotography
Rarely do I sit and watch a songwriter with my mouth open and hanging on each word of the lyrics. I found myself doing exactly that Saturday evening at the Pavilion Coffee House. Karla Davis is so darn good.
This is one amazing performance!
Taylor Dukes was in rare form last Saturday evening at the Pavilion Coffee House.
Every song was better than the last. She has the most mellow voice I have heard in years.
Taylor Dukes will be a big hit in this town soon.
This one of the few times I did not know who I was dealing with. I was out on the internet listening to good songs with lyrics that tells a good story. I ran across a song called "Alabama Gator Oil". It is a song about a bootlegger in northern Alabama.
I saw this written by Gary Cavanauagh about playing in Nashville at an open mic night. I totally agree 100%.He stated 7 great points to remember if you are playing in Nashville or anywhere for that matter. I have held songwriters stages at Bost Harley Davidson and at the Fontanel.
