Tonight, Traci and I went to see Jenny Brennan’s round at the Bluebird. It was a pretty cool night, featuring Jenny and an accompanying pianist/guitarist, Levi Rose, and Alex Harvey of “Delta Dawn” fame.
I’m not big into country music, but it’s always interesting to hear these writer’s rounds. I enjoyed the night much more than I thought I would.
Alex Harvey showed up a little late, but he more than made up for it. When I first saw him, I thought he looked like a weed-tokin’ bar-hoppin’ songster who can only write songs under the influence of Jack Daniel’s, but I was soon corrected when I found out that he was the music leader at his church, and he turned out to be a very spirital guy. Not to say that spiritual folks can’t enjoy a brew every now and then.
Today’s featured pic is the best I could get of both Alex and Jenny. This was taken during Alex’s finale of “Delta Dawn,” proceeded by a heartfelt story of who the song is written for. I can do the story no justice, so I won’t repeat it here. All I can say is that it was definitely a unique experience.
Earlier today, as we arrived at work, we noticed that there was a big commotion at the far end of Music Row. Chad and I walked the good walk to see what was going on, and below is all we could see. About five fire engines blocked the area outside of the building at the end of the street. There was a cop parked in the middle of the road that kept shooting glances at us that said, “Don’t go any further or I’ll have to roll down my window and tell you not to go any further.” So, I snapped my picture and left.
