We’ll be kicking off our Southeastern tour this week with two shows in the Nashville area; the first at the legendary Grand Ole Opry on Tuesday, April 28, and the following night at the Music City Roots live radio show at the Factory in Franklin. Music City Roots, hosted by Jim Lauderdale, is the gig we wish all gigs could be. Beautifully curated, thoughtfully produced, designed to make the visiting artists sound and look their best. I’m so looking forward to coming back. Here’s a preview of the show (which takes place Wednesday April 29th – tickets available here), with some lovely words about Blackbirds by MCR producer Craig Havighurst.
