my soundtrack: mindy smith + leigh nash

i know little to nothing about music, but it’s hard not to be sucked in by the sounds of music city. last night, i attended my first show at the historic belcourt theater. it was a lovely experience- beautiful music in an intimate setting. a couple of songs really spoke to me, so i just have to share. isn’t it amazing how music can mirror some of our innermost thoughts?

leigh nash from sixpence none the richer was the opening act. i had no idea she was going to be there, so i was beyond excited. what girl didn’t sing happily along to “kiss me”?? {this girl still does} leigh was the cutest and most genuine person i’ve ever seen perform. really, just adorable. i fell in love with her personality instantly and her voice all over again. i want to be her best friend. listen below to a song she wrote to her dad. so touching.

mindy smith, a singer-songwriter who often appears on my pandora stations, was the headliner. she was quite the entertainer as well. she was definitely an odd bird, but an odd bird i’d want to hang out with. her long island accent and sarcastic sense of humor was hugely unexpected given her sweet and sad love songs, but she was charming nonetheless. one of my favorite songs of the night was “tennessee”- a song she wrote about this great place i live. give it a listen below.

Tennessee, you’ve been good to me
Yes, I’ve come to believe you’re where I wanna be
You may not be what everybody needs
but Tennessee, you’re good enough for me

I can see stars shining in your night
Your daytime seems like Cash and Patsy Cline
They may not be what everybody needs
But they touch my soul
That’s good enough for me

It’s been ten years now, and I’m rooted in your soil
I am rooted in your soil
Give me ten more years, I’ll be rooted in your soil
Right here in your soil

You may not be what I will always need
But I call you home
If I can call you home
Then you’re good enough for me
