I recently had the immense pleasure to join The Waybacks and a slew of other folks at Merlefest's annual Hillside Album Hour! The album of choice this year was "Eagles Greatest Hits" in honor of Glenn Frey and for anyone who knows me, so say I'm a giant Eagles fan is a massive understatement. So it was particularly special for me! The performance also featured clips of songs by other artists we have recently lost including David Bowie, Merle Haggard, Prince, Allen Toussaint, George Martin, BB King, Chris Squire of Yes, and Maurice White of Earth Wind and Fire. It was quite an emotional hour. The guys from The Waybacks are some of the most incredibly talented musicians I have ever worked with and I was in awe of their gifts. Also onstage at some point or another were John Oates, Jim Lauderdale, Sam Bush, Jens Kruger, Nicki Bluhm, Lindsay Lou (Lindsay Lou and the Flatbellys), Jason Crosby, and James Nash, Chuck Hamilton, and Joe Kyle Jr. of The Waybacks. I'm a lucky gal. What an amazing time!!
My big moment at the end of Purple Rain! Haha!
