Getting to the Heart of the Song in Nashville, Tennessee
Four friends sit facing each other in the center of the room, relaxed yet intent as they tell stories and trade songs. The friends will likely include people who’ve written buckets of chart-topping hits and artists who sell out arenas. At the Bluebird, though, it’s as though they’re kicking back around the kitchen table. There are about a hundred other people around that kitchen table, too, people who share respect for the song and the connections created through music. On those nights when you have the chance to be one of them, this quiet, concentrated listening, reflection, and connection among audience and musicians refreshes you and sends you out into the Nashville evening ready to make your own music.
