Winter Bluebird Cafe Concert Series
Drenched in sun-kissed natural beauty both inside and out, Deana Carter didn’t take a seemingly easy route to stardom, but instead chose to defy the conventional expectations of the typical Nashville artist blueprint and make her own mark. And she did, undeniably taking the industry and fans by storm with her wildly successful multi-platinum international debut Did I Shave My Legs For This? more than a decade ago. Anchored by the dreamy super hit ” Strawberry Wine” , Carter showcased her own blend of country and retro-rock sprinkled with the folksy singer/songwriter qualities that have garnered Deana Carter well-deserved respect and wild acclaim.
The musical influences that sound tracked Jacob Davis’ upbringing in Shreveport, Louisiana are essential to the creation of his sound. With his debut single “What I Wanna Be” going to country radio this spring, Davis is coming out with a fresh sound, and a road-tested live show having already opened for artists including Lady Antebellum, Hunter Hayes, Sam Hunt, Billy Currington, and Kelsea Ballerini. After graduating with an Environmental Science degree and spending a year working for an oil company, Davis decided it was time to create new future for himself in Nashville. His decision paid off quickly after catching the attention of a passionate advocate at ASCAP, and he ended up signing his first publishing deal within six months of moving to Music City.
The balance between traditional sounds and contemporary themes is evident on Carlton Anderson’s his first single on Arista Nashville, “Drop Everything.” Originally from Cypress, Texas, Anderson grew up on sports and the other Texas pastime: music. His inspiration came from Willie Nelson, George Strait, and a long line of musical mavericks who transcended borders. He eventually moved to Nashville to attend college and follow his dream. Anderson quickly found a stage and tip jar in one of the honky tonks on Broadway to pay the bills. He was the first to graduate college in his family, but he learned the ropes through hard work, practice, paying his dues in Texas, and playing for tourists and bachelorette parties in Nashville. It wasn’t long before the industry took notice and he was signed to a publishing deal with Warner Chappell Music and began writing with some of the most sought-after songwriters in Nashville.
The Bluebird Cafe Concert Series features Nashville’s renowned singers, songwriters, and musicians. We’re pleased to partner with the original Bluebird Cafe to bring these talented artists to Sundance for this special winter event.
