I just got back to the city a couple of days ago after spending a few weeks down south in Tennessee and Mississippi. I wrote a bunch of songs in Nashville and also caught up with some of my oldest and best friends. It occurred to me, like maybe never before, that Nashville is home to me. No matter where I go or hang my hat, it always calls me back. My people are there, and the songs are there.
I recall a conversation I had with a few songwriting friends about what state names sing the best. I decided that they were Alabama, Tennessee, Mississippi, Louisiana, Georgia, maybe sometimes Texas if it’s coming out of the right mouth, and California. I’ll be singing about some and maybe all of those places next week at Joe’s Pub, on Wednesday, September 10, at 730pm. Come join me. It’ll be fun.
