FWIW, and in all seriousness: that's a really first class lineup of talent. I would consider going to it, if I were in ATL.

If you don't know, music director Don Was, is a bassist and producer involved in many first rate album and film projects. He's one of T-Bone Burnett's go-to guys, and is musical director for the annual Americana Awards Show at the Ryman in Nashville every September. It's been broadcast on PBS the last couple years.

She said if she heard anyone disrespecting Skynyrd she would hit them in the titty :shock: :lol:

That sounds like it could be fun; I've always liked Skynyrd, but I might have to start ragging on them. :twisted:

I just hope that Trace Adkins is sober and gives a good performance. I'm still smarting from his disappointing performance at the Gregg tribute. :x

FWIW- I think this will be a fun show to see. Killer line-up, songs that were solid in their heyday. Plus, the Fox is fantastic and always makes me feel fancy. ;)

I feel like "kicking in the nuts" was also mentioned. :shock:

Yep. As I've said before, Skynyrd wrote the top-down, best-girl-at-my-side, beers-in-the-cooler songs that corporate Nashville tries to replicate today, and fails repeatedly in doing.

I like the tunes, and I love their catalog. I don't like the current band's hard core / defensive stance, or their jingoistic political stance. They are no more than a tribute act, despite having one? two? original members. And they are seriously in need of a funny bone.

Let's compare:

We went to see James Taylor perform a couple weeks ago. Fantastic show; absolutely cream-of-the-crop players in the band. So he did Handy Man, and for that tune, there was a video running on the screen of various lubed up, topless guys in tool belts and jeans, with all kinds of slo-mo sexually suggestive stuff going on. It was on the far edge of what would be appropriate for a 'family concert', and I suspect it offended some folks with kids out on the lawn. Bu that's their problem; we laughed and enjoyed it tremendously. It was self effacing, and at this point, James is okay poking fun at himself. He's a good egg, on top of being a totally first class performer.

Skynyrd wouldn't ever do something like that in concert. They are too busy waving the US flag, and trotting out their now 40 year old catalog like it was on Hot FM Radio last week.

Agreed. I did a bit of eye-rolling during their set at Wanee....but I also had a great time dancing. :D So, take THOSE songs, and have diverse and pretty bad-ass artists perform them....this could seriously rock.

Unfortunately, my rock-star hubby won't be in town to enjoy the show....so I guess it'll come down to how much the tix are and how I'm feeling when they go on sale.

I passed on Skynyrd this past Wanee (stayed at the Mushroom stage), but my boy checked 'em out. He had fun laughing at some of the more hardcore LS fans :-)

Jason Isbell doing Simple Man. That would KILL.
