Last Friday Laura played her first official writer’s round at The Bluebird Cafe here in Nashville. For those of you who don’t know, playing The Bluebird is a big deal. The place is recognized as one of the most important songwriter listening venues globally. Important artists, songwriters, and music industry veterans have all either graced the stage, played a writer’s round, or mingled with patrons at the Bluebird Cafe. The venue has been around for over 40 years and year over year plays host to a steady stream of promising and established songwriters and artists. Laura and I have been to The Bluebird many times as guests, and Friday was the first time Laura was in a round.
Laura played in a round with Marcus Hummon (“Ready to Run,” “Cowboy Take Me Away,” “Bless The Broken Road,” and many others), Lari White, Kelly Archer, and Kasey Musgraves. Please click their names to see who they are and what they’ve written. All are fantastic artists and songwriters in their own unique ways.
Here are a few pictures I snapped from my front row perspective - enjoy! :)
Oh, I almost forgot, our friend Dean Berner came to the show and was asked by Marcus to join him onstage for a song they had written together. Thus the picture of Dean playing the guitar next to Marcus. :)
