So as I said a while back I’m going to be heading to Nashville to spend some quality time with my Uncle Tony Lane, (here comes the bragging) a singer/songwriter on Music Row that has written songs for Lee Ann Womack and George Strait among others, and his wonderful family and to attend the Americana Music Conference. This is going to be a great week.
I’ve never been to Nashville and am looking forward to visiting legendary joints like the Ryman Auditorium (home of the original Grand ‘Ol Opry) The Bluebird Café (where legends come to try out their tunes) and, of course, the Country Music Hall of Fame. And I can’t wait to get to see so many great performances (Rosanne Cash. Elvis Costello and Allen Toussaint, Alejandro Escovedo, Jon Langford, Tres Chicas and Ray Wylie Hubbard just to name a few.)
If you’re going to the conference and would like to meet for a drink drop me a line. I’ll be checking email on and off and will try and post from the road, but you know how these things go. If I can’t post from there I’ll wrap up when I get back to New York.
