In late January we had the pleasure of stopping by Music City Roots just outside of Nashville in Franklin, Tennessee.
It was a pretty incredible night sharing the bill with Blackberry Smoke, Chester Thompson (Frank Zappa & The Mothers of Invention), Bill & The Belles, and Brian Whelan (Dwight Yoakam). Not to mention the show’s host Jim Lauderdale. We’d had the pleasure of meeting Jim a few years prior on another trip down to Tennessee and I must say, he is one of the nicest and most welcoming guys in the business. He even took the time to sit backstage and run through a few songs with me prior to the show. A true country gentleman.
Check out this video of me and the boys playing “Shake Like Jello” on MCR.
And to close the show Jim had the whole crew up for one big Nashville Jam. Someone should check, but this might be the first time 3 basses have ever been on the MCR stage playing together. “Sitting On Top Of The World“.
