Nashville. I hadn’t seen her in 20 years, and never dressed like this.
“Great to see you,” she says as she hugs me.
Her brunette hair is longer now, her face happier, the smile lines around her eyes more interesting. And this long velvet skirt and lace trim blouse with the little flower, so different from her formal louder self.
“Still developing great talent, I see.” I motion to the bluegrass band performing on stage.
Ryman is a tiny venue but anybody who’s been here, remembers. Some say it’s the acoustics. I say it’s the bones of the place, great ones like Bill Monroe come to mind.
“Who do you like these days?”
“I like this,” I motion to her. “It has soul.”
Always about music, she waits patiently with a smile.
“And I like Chelle Rose singing Rufus Morgan.”
