We were lucky enough to go to the special live broadcast of Lera Lynn Plays Well With Others CD launch Friday evening, June 22, 2018, as WMOT and World Cafe present a special record release of the concert.
In our quest to discover some of the amazing artists here in our new home town of Nashville, we stumbled upon an artist named Lera Lynn (check out her website). Now why we have not discovered this amazing artist before now is a bit of a mystery, and why every one of the artists who co-wrote with her on her on her new album Plays Well With Others and also performed with her at her June 22nd show have not been on our radar before now is also surprising.
The show was at 3rd and Lindsley and was broadcast live on WMOT and World Cafe and was hosted by NPR’s Ann Powers. The album, co-produced by John Paul White (Civil Wars) and Ben Tanner (Alabama Shakes) includes duets with Lynn by many notable performers, such as John Paul White, Rodney Crowell, Peter Bradley Adams, Nicole Atkins, Andrew Combs, and Dylan LeBlanc, all of who performed live with Lera at this very special show.
This was one of those very special nights where everything came together to make it one of those shows that will live on our list of ‘favorite shows ever.’ It was one of those evenings where there is a perfect mixture of beautifully crafted songs combined with some of the most emotive and technically executed vocal work one could wish to hear. Being familiar with John Paul White’s formidable talents, his contribution to the evening was amazing as one would expect, but for us, a real stand out was Dylan LeBlanc, an artist we had not yet heard of—we will be digging deep into his music!
This collection of songs is amazing, and I’m looking forward to hearing the recorded version after enjoying the live show so much. Every single one of these artists is now on our list of artists to check out, and I can’t recommend enough that all lovers of good music also check them out!
