Stacie Collins Concert Review – CD Release Party – Nashville, TN – 3rd and Lindsley – 11/18/2010 (Podcast 188)
It was Thursday, November 18th 2010 when one of the most energetic girls of Country Rock, Stacie Collins, celebrated her new CD release, “Sometimes Ya Gotta…”, with a packed-house party at 3rd and Lindsley in Nashville, TN. Mike Arnold and James Downing were on hand to host a podcast while celebrating this event.
In this podcast, Mike and James take you through each song of the evening describing the details of the concert. Stacie Collins began the night wearing a long coat and cowboy hat, but it didn’t take long for her to shred both as the “Queen of the Harmonica” led the enthusiastic crowd into most of her energetic new CD.
Stacie’s night consisted of rock songs with a touch of a southern sound that would classify her in the rock category in some songs, southern rock in others, pure country in a few, an Americana flair in most, and a classic party rocker with a few cover tunes.
Throughout the night Stacie showed everyone her harmonica skills, but the skills of her backup band led by her husband, Al Collins, shined through as well.
At one point in the night Stacie brought out her softer side by playing a couple of acoustic ballads that proved her songwriting skills and vocals are well rounded.
Special guest musician and friend, Mike Webb, joined Stacie for a few numbers by playing electric piano and the accordion. The night’s set ended with Stacie in the first couple of rows on top of the tables singing and playing the harmonica, but when the song ended, the loud excited crowd demanded more and they got it as the band kicked in an encore of AC/DC’s “It’s a Long Way to the Top!”
Mike and James enjoyed the night and we hope you will enjoy this podcast as you will hear studio clips, live clips, and a short conversation with Stacie Collins.
James said it all, “Stacie had to put those harmonicas in Cold Water, because they were Smoking!”
