Brandi Carlile – “The Eye”

“You can dance in a hurricane, but only if you’re standing in the eye.”

Something fine on a Sunday afternoon. The only time I saw Brandi live was at the Ryman in Nashville, TN. She was just getting her start in the music business and was the intro act for Train. It was on Saturday, April 8, 2006. On the way from Richmond, KY with my good friend, Margaret Baxter, we encountered a tornado near Gallatin, TN, and spent several minutes along the side of the road while hail pummeled my car. A tragic and devastating day for Gallatin. But we made it to the concert and Brandi was amazing. “The Eye” is appropriate for these memories.
