LO AND BEHOLD, this morning in Electric Fountain Brewing appears none other than the one, the only, the legendary and the awesome Sami Bearden of Avenue Beat fame. Sami and her mates Sam and Savana have just dropped their second video from their debut CD. It's almost as good as the cow video. We gotta get the name of Laney the cow's manager.
Sami is back home for a family visit. Her buddy Brock Elmore works at EFB and they were reminiscing and laughing about the good old days. She showed me a picture of Sami and Brock at prom a few years back, and let's just say Brock is taller and Sami still rocks.
Sami loves Angus and the new puppy, Malcolm. She looks like life is treating her well in Nashville. My only real concern is that Avenue Beats needs to have the little kid yodeler with the cowboy hat open for them, not the other way around.
We are coming up on the five-year anniversary of the first time I played with Avenue Beat. It was at Open Mic Night at One Restaurant on Halloween night. We did "Monster Mash" and it was epic.
How nice to see Sami again back in her old hometown. Soon she flies off to more music adventures, but I'm glad she realizes she can always, always, always come home!
