I ALWAYS enjoy going down to the Nashville Palace in the afternoons or the evenings
before or after other events. It’s close to everything and I usually go to Ernest Tubb’s and buy stuff.
I LOVE a lot of the acts that play there on a regular basis. And on Sundays from 12-4 you can
see this husband and wife duo 2country4nashville.
I first met them during the national launch of The Last Honky Tonk Music Series. And I really enjoyed meeting them.
I had some spare time before the Illinois Benefit Sunday night so I surprised them and
just came in without telling them I was coming.
Jo-El and LeAnne Ulmer play a really fun show full of Traditional Country music cover songs.
Now,I will say this…they play some well known covers BUT they play some VERY obscure covers
too! I LOVE THAT it is what got BR5-49 going on Broadway.
There were nights that BR5-49 would take in 1000 in tips!
The best obscure song they did was “Walking The Dog”..VERY good song. And to be honest alot of
the regular public won’t notice it’s a cover.
They played “Farewell Party” “Lonely Women” “Chistled In Stone” and more.
But they gave me a CD and their original song “2country4nashville” was just a fun
song to hear. And there’s another original called “Last Cowboy In Wyoming”.
Altogether I will be back to see them play again sometime.
