Playing The Bluebird (#31DaysofBlogging)

This blog is a part of a series #31DaysofBlogging … we are going through the year (2015) chronologically.

 

Nashville really is a magical place. Sometimes it’s hard to remember that when you live here. It’s easy to get caught up in everyday life...running errands, paying bills, the grind…and you forget that it’s a city of dreamers, creators, and a place where anything can happen...

   

 

 

Like where anything can happen at the drop of a hat. Where a friend can call you and say, "Can you play a few songs at the Bluebird on Saturday?"

"HECK YEAH, WE CAN."

See, we have never played at The Bluebird. We've been there to see plenty of shows. And of course we've seen it a million times on the TV show, Nashville. But in our 8 years of living in Nashville, we had yet to play our own songs at The Bluebird...until this year. 

But here's what's so awesome about this town. People are friends. They call each other and say, "Hey, let's do a show" or "Hey, will you come play a few songs at my show?" and it happens. This is what happened when our friend David Bradley asked us to play a few tunes at his round at the Bluebird in October. We had met his fiance a few weeks before and she is AWESOME. She showed our music to David and he asked us to come play a few songs. 

David is an UNBELIEVABLE songwriter. Like, yes, we know that incredible songwriters are all over this town, but David is extra special. (We cried our way through his set. His songs will hit a nerve inside of you and they won't let go. Go listen to Hard Time Moving On right now and tell us you are not a complete mess...)

He is from the UK (hello, one of our favorite places) and we all hit it off right away! 

So we got to play two songs (What Do You Say and Nick + Jess) at the Bluebird thanks to David and his fiance, Basak, and it was a highlight of this year! It is truly an honor to play at this venue!

 

Nashville is a place where dreams become a reality, heartbreak becomes songs which become anthems that people sing worldwide. What a magical place. Playing at the Bluebird was one of the coolest parts of 2015 for us! We hope to play there again in the coming years. Thanks David and Basak for giving us the opportunity to play at this historic venue!

Merry Christmas to everyone on this lovely Christmas day! See you tomorrow! :)
