Well I got here a little bit late and I missed some of Mr. Andrew Pope’s set however I did get some great video of him. I will do some more features on this young man in the near future. The video I shot of him was entitled “Wish I Was In Austin”. I’ll include a little piece on him here as I prepare to cover Miss Jamie Wyatt.
You may remember his latest album made my Top 50 Of 2017. We also got to hear one of his new songs called “Gonna Be Gone”.
Miss Jaime Wyatt is hot off her album release that graced many of a TOP 50 album lists last year, opening up her set with the song called “Wishing Well.” Half of Nashville is here tonight including Miss Tommy Ash and her husband, Mr. Colter Wall, Mr. Whey Jennings, Miss Sarah Gayle Meech, and many others.
Her next song was called “Stone Hotel” ,and was the song I related to the most off that wonderful album. I have high expectations for this young lady here and I eagerly await her new music and new album, which she did reveal some new music tonight here.
Her album Felony Blues was absolutely amazing, and she deliers the songs with great poise as she belts out “Giving Back The Best Of Me”. She is currently doing her own version of Merle Haggard’s Misery And Gin. Being from California herself she pulls off the twang quite well. This young lady represents what Traditional Country today is in every fashion.
This video I took was a BRAND NEW SONG about “Ain’t Enough Whiskey”, and she followed it up with another song called “By Yourself.” Very strong powerful ballad she has here. All together that’s what I’m eagerly listening for are the new materials from everyone here tonight.
She closed her set with one of my favorites from her album called “Wasco”. Altogether I was completely impressed with her live sound and song arrangement tonight, top notch show so far. So I guess you could say you heard it HERE First, and as her new album releases, you can BET we WILL be featuring it.
It’s finally time for my old buddy Mr Shooter hopefully armed with some new material as well, but if not he will still blow the roof off this joint tonight. I don’t think I have ever been to a bad Shooter show, and I have been to a LOT of his shows.
He began his set with a nice refresher course on some of his older songs from that terrific o in country album like “4rth Of July” and “Solid Country Gold”. Also included was a really good performance of “Steady At The Wheel”.
The Nashville Palace had a truly fine set up here for the VIP area and had ample seating for everyone here. There was a little feedback problem during “”Electric Rodeo “but “Gone To Carolina” sounded great. Included in his set tonight we’re five new songs that will be on his forthcoming album aptly called Shooter. As of right now I’m not sure if I can divulge any video of them or not, so I will include the video for “living In A Minor Key”.
The video I have included was of the song Living In A Minor Key and after that he played a new song called “DRUNK”. He also included the song The Door from the Don’t Wait Up For George album, which he always tells the story of being ripped off by a faker.
Right now he is on his keyboard playing “All Of This Could’ve Been Your s”and “”Manifesto Part 1” which was included in this set tonight. And these next three songs are all new ones as far as I remembered, as I aforementioned the new album will drop around August and be called “Shooter”.
I know this one is called “Denim And Diamonds” and the next new song is called ‘Fast Horses And Good Hideouts”, it was a slower song with powerful lyrics , and he followed that up with another song called ‘Wild And Lonesome” which was on the album The Other Life. From chatting with Mr. Shooter on previous occasions he has expressed great enthusiasm concerning this album.
He closed his show a final new song called “Rhinestone Eyes”, all in all the new songs were amazing and this album will contain songs that flow well with one another. Wild And Lonesome had some truly fine fiddle work and backing from the band.
This was the portion of the show that I enjoy the most the energetic climax of songs like the powerful and angry “Outlaw You”. You know folks Mr. Shooter doesn’t totally hate the pop country scene, hell he even acknowledged Luke Bryan’s public apology once. But he DOES dislike fake music just like his fans, and he doesn’t jump on any bandwagons or copy anybody. Mr. Shooter isn’t totally Country all the time either, he lets his influences emanate through his music on many levels.
“White Trash Song” that he co worte with Mr. Scott H Biram was next before he called up Mr. Andrew Pope, and Mr. Tommy Townsend up to sing a Hank Williams Jr. song called “The pressure Is On”. I got to ask Mr. Tommy how the moonshine business was, and more about HIS solo album out soon on BCR.
He concluded his show with “Gunslinger” and as always in honor of Colonel Jon….”Good Time Charlie”. I join him in honoring Mr. Jon always on this website with his picture up on the sidebar. And it will NEVER come down, as I use it to inspire my own self when I need guidance. To not be afraid to say “that sucks” or “That did not speak to me musically”. IT’S OK to dislike things but promote what you LOVE and ignore what you HATE, and never waste time bashing what you don’t like in public. Mr. Jon always supported local music, and paid door fees, most of all he admired ALL OF US that did the same. Jon will live forever in Shooter, and Mr. shooter has a HOME on this website….If YOU go see him THANK his crew for me.
