Last night was so much fun... Went to the Rocking Roots Guitar Showcase at The 5 Spot. Four trios lead by incredible guitarists. Nick Kane, Richie Owens with the Farm Bureau, Ted Drozdowski with his Scissormen, and Mark Robinson. Great players with distinct and unique styles falling into the blues/roots area if labels mean much. All of them were mind-blowingly awesome in very different ways.

After that showcase, I stuck around to see a long-time favorite of Ear to the Ground, Pony Boy. She was a Featured Artist in August 2012, and since then she has spent some time in Nashville, had a song featured on the ABC show named after our fair city, and last night she played a bunch of Nashville's hottest players. The qualities which first lead me to her music were all present - an amazing voice, great songs (the originals and covers), and a great stage presence. It was good to finally meet her.
