Last night David Letterman continued championing Americana and roots music in the New Year by inviting Lera Lynn (“From Nash-VEGAS Tennessee!” Letterman announces as a inside joke with his maestro sidekick Paul Shaffer ) to the Late Show stage.
Lynn may make her home in Nash-Vegas now, but she’s a Houston, TX girl by birth.
Lynn and her band deliver a simmeringly lush yet low-key version of “Out to Sea” from her sophomore offering “The Avenues,” which made our 2014 year-end list at #12.
Good to hear a different sound. For what is worth I like it and a girl with a guitar is a good thing, a really good thing…
