The Jerry Douglas Band brought their innovative new music to the prestigious Troubadour nightclub in Los Angeles on November 13. The band is on a national tour promoting their new album, “What If.” The band was led by one of the most well-known veteran resonator and lap steel slide guitar players in American music. The singer-songwriter and master guitarist has recorded 14 albums and won 14 Grammys.
It’s 10:27 pm at The 8th Annual Festy Experience and I am sitting under the stage, directly beneath Mike Cooley’s feet (of Drive-By Truckers), hacking away at my typewriter. The rain is falling, not strong but steady, and I need somewhere dry to write. The music is flowing through me, his boot bottoms stomping out a beat inches from my head.
