Tunes All Around Music City

Hey Music Lovers,

It is already Thursday, wow does time fly.  We are already near the end of October.  Scary to think about with how time seems to escape us.  How has your week been?  Mine has been jam packed with music, just the way I love it.

The past two nights I have had the opportunity to attend magnificent shows in Music City.  On Tuesday night (October 19), I attended The FUNL Filled Double Feature featuring artists Amber Hayes and Ty Herndon.  In a play on the name, FUNL offered free funnel cakes at the show.  Very cool idea!  Guerrilla marketing at its finest.  Both Hayes and Herndon displayed true talent at Mercy Lounge.  Hayes talent was showcased beautifully through her latest single, “C’Mon.”  Hayes debuted “C’Mon,” just a few months ago.  For all the girls looking for a fun song to dance to be sure to checkout this track.  Shortly after Hayes ended her set, Ty Herndon took to the stage.  Herndon has three no. 1 hits credited to his name:  “Living In A Moment,” “It Must Be Love,” and “What Mattered Most.”  His latest album, Journey On, is one music lovers must pick up.  If I had to pick one favorite song of the evening, “Don’t Pass Me By,” resonated with me the most.  In this fast paced world, life seems to pass in the blink of an eye.  This song reminds us to take a moment and ‘smell the roses; in a sense.’  There is one more song I must mention from one of Herndon’s earlier releases, “A Man Holdin’ On (To A Woman Letting Go).”  All of Herndon’s songs have such deep personal connections.  Journey On, is one of those albums which will put a sense of meaning in your life after listening.

Wednesday night (October 20), was my first trip out to 3rd&Lindsley to see Watson & Nash perform.  If you remember from Monday, Watson & Nash got my pick for song of the week with “Runnin Blind.”  Watson & Nash is one band you should catch Live because their talent is greatly displayed on their album, but magnify that talent by ten and you have their live performance.  During their live performance the two just display such energy and passion for the music they perform.  Two of my favorite songs performed during the live show were “Tough People Do” and “Little Solider.”  Don’t worry if you missed this appearance.  Watson & Nash will be back at 3rd & Lindsley, a popular music spot in Nashville, on Thursday, November 11th at 6pm.  You don’t want to miss this show LIVE! For more information on Watson & Nash be sure to visit WatsonandNash.com.  Also, follow them on twitter for the most up to date information.

I want to hear from you now.  I love providing you with the latest concert reviews and my favorite lyrics, but now it is time for me to get feedback.  Do you know of any good shows I should checkout?  How about artists and songs?  Leave me a comment, I do respond.

Until next time bloggers, keep those ears entertained.

Musically,

Chelsea ♫

    Love the themes that always find a way into your writing, Chels. I have a theme of my own, though, when it comes to catching up on your blog work- highly enjoying each of them and appreciating the education on all the new artists I haven’t heard of yet! As relates to theme in this one, I really liked your marriage of the passage of time with the new song “Don’t Pass Me By”. Talk about the essence of how all us feel when it comes to stopping for a minute and just reflecting on our own part in this crazy ride called Life; the way the ride keeps on moving even when we don’t. Wonderful idea there and of course, such true and honest sentiments you use when describing not only your own love of music but also of the talented artists who make it. Great job, and as always- Keep em coming!
