Shelly Colvin from last year's AMA Fest
Well, well, well... This is Americana week in Nashville, and even though I'm not going to make it to any of the official AMA showcases, I've got three days of some pretty killer music on tap. Beginning tonight, when I will make my first of three rare public appearances. I'm heading across the river to the Five Spot to hang out with Miss Shevaughn and Yuma Wray plus their entourage along with the music blogger behind Too Much Country. The music tonight begins with E2TG favorite Mark Robinson, and features Peter Cooper and Eric Brace, Dave Coleman of The Coalmen, Kevin Gordon and others. It all begins at 5.
Friday after work, I'm crossing back over the river to East Nashville to hang out at The Groove record shop to hear Amanda Shires and others.
Finally, Saturday, Grimey's New and Pre-Loved Music to hear some free music all day with T. Hardy Morris, Wille Sugacapps, The Dexateens, an all-star tribute to Alabama, and the one and only Billy Bragg.
