Speaking of Nashville music that’s good

Speaking of Nashville music that’s good: I just noticed that Nickel Creek‘s new CD, Why Should the Fire Die? is the #1 iTunes album download today. There’s hope for the world, afterall.

That photo on the left of the 14-year-old (who turns 15 in a couple of weeks) and Nickle Creek’s Chris Thile was taken in April.

That reminds me. Thanks to Terry Heaton who was nice enough to send me an e-mail recently when he learned that Nickel Creek is performing at the War Memorial Auditorium on October 15 (the Nickel Creek site says the 16th, also, so I guess they’ll add that date if necessary). (Ticket info – they officially go on sale 8/20, but I believe they are available now through a WRLT “presale” & because you read the rexblog. Use password “Rome”).
