Nashville Day

Lee Ann Womack & Group; Richard Thompson; members of Blackberry Smoke

I work in a great place.  Today we were treated to an acoustic concert in the HBO lobby, featuring Lee Ann Womack, Richard Thompson and members of Blackberry Smoke.  Every year, just before the Grammys, we're lucky enough to hear some of the finest roots music live.
I must say, Richard Thompson's guit-astic playing brought down the house!  It was great seeing Richard's wife, Nancy Covey.  Larry and I toured Southern Louisiana with Nancy this past May.  She runs Festival International Tours.  Her next excursion is to Cuba!

Have a great weekend, my friends.  Don't forget to create or buy your sweetie a Valentine's Day card for next Saturday!

Hah! Small world, Fredde! I've known Nancy for about 25 years. I went on one of her New Orleans tours in 1990...that's when I met my husband, Larry! Larry and I went on Nancy's tour again this year. She's great. Richard T. was amazing today. What a fantastic musician!
