Nashville Part III: The Farm

Cuz there ain't no party like a farm party.

Those aren't just lyrics...they are for real!  As much as I love their music (I was familiar with a couple of songs before seeing them perform), you have to experience them to truly appreciate them.  They don't just play instruments and sing (with amazing voices), they know how to put on a show.  The Farm draws in the audience, large or small, and gets the party started!

Oh yeaaaaaa, a Farm Party!




These guys (and this girl) have amazing chemistry, both on and off the stage.  I've been fortunate enough to meet a number of acts.  Most are pretty down to earth.  A few of them I won't comment on.  But this group are genuinely nice.  Really awesome to talk to, to watch and to be around!

Talented and humble...it's a good thing.


Possibly one of my favorite things about them is their diversity.  You just don't see a lot of that in country music and honestly, this just moves them up a few rungs.  It just does.


So, let's meet the players in this eclectic ensemble.

We have Krista.  She has the voice of an angel with a bit of the devil in her soul.  She whips out opera like it's second nature and then turns around and rocks it with the best of them!



Yea, we won't even mention how gorgeous she is.  Something for the guys?  Check.

Then we have Damien.  *say this outloud all sing-songy*  Awwwweeeeesommmmeeee!  This guy brings hip-hop into the country scene in a way that makes you want to jump up and dance.  No, not just stand and tap your foot...you HAVE to dance!  Unless you're photographing him.  Then you just stare for a minute.

Now, you might be saying to yourself, "Self?  How is he bringing hip-hop to country?"  Well, other than the obvious musical part, there's the flip.

What?

Yes.  Damien flips.  He checks for his clear spot, goes into launch mode and then...

Uh huh...feet over the head in a full on flip.  He sticks the landing.  I give him a 10.

*the crowd goes wild*

Last, but definately not least,  is Nick.  He's the fiddle-playing gel of the group.  I can assure you, Charlie Daniels has nothing on this guy.

Nick played and played hard.  He went through two bows with his fiddling.  There was horse hair flying all over the place!


And, on top of that, he's the third part of their harmony and rocks it with the best of them!


The Farm will not be that group that sits in the background waiting for their big break.  They are going go after it with a running charge...and they should.  Chevy did it again.  They've nailed it on the future of country music!

Just check out Home Sweet Home if you want to know what kind of harmony they bring to the mix! 

Enjoy, and I'm looking forward to Part IV tomorrow.  I think I left a bit of my heart in Nashville this time around!
