Yesterday I saw that Audrey Assad tweeted about how she would be playing in Nashville tonight. I looked up the venue, and there was a long line-up of musicians and the event was free! I interviewed Audrey last Friday over the phone, so I was excited to meet her in person. Tonight Jennifer and I met up with a few of the interns at The Rutledge. We were there 30 minutes before the show, and no one was there! So we got seats right up front near the stage. We ended up being very glad because by the time the music got going, that place was packed.

(That's not my beer … just saying.)

Audrey Assad
Audrey Assad has a new album coming out on July 13. I've listened to it and it's great. Check it out.

After Audrey played, I got up to talk to her. I introduced myself and she did remember I interviewed her last week.
She was so sweet and took a picture with me.
Me and Audrey

Chris August
Chris August was good. Not really my style of music, but he's talented.

Mistletoe Project
Mistletoe Project was a little strange; they sang Christmas songs.
They had one song I really liked, but being a no-Christmas-music-til-after-Thanksgiving person,
I'm not sure their music fares well year-round.

House of Heroes
When I heard "House of Heroes" I thought that sounds like the name of a rock band.
They are a rock band. I could hardly hear afterward, but I really liked their music.
One of their songs, "In the Valley of the Dying Sun" is actually available for free on Amazon.com.

Poema is two teenage sisters from Albuquerque, Shealeen (age 19) and Elle (age 17).
They play acoustic/pop songs.

Brandon Heath

Brandon Heath began playing around 10 p.m. It was cool to see him live because I interview him last summer. He played a couple of new songs—one with Matt Wertz—before ending with "Give Me Your Eyes."

Newsboys played last, but it was 10:30 and Jennifer and I decided to go on home. We have to get up at 5 a.m. and so bedtime before midnight is absolutely necessary to be able to function at work at 6:30 a.m. The event was really fun. I have a couple of videos of Audrey and of Brandon. Here they are:

I love Music City,
