When I went to Bootsy Collins’s birthday celebration at the Basement East last October I met No Face Shadowmen. His name says it all. He is a virtuoso pianist. The people who work with him don’t even know his true identity. We decided to do an impromptu shoot after the performance.

On Friday night Lee Ann Womack kicked off a two-night stand at Nashville's Basement East with a sold-out performance. Touring in support of her latest album, the Texas-influenced 'The Lonely, the Lonesome, and the Gone,’ Womack's set featured her bluesy new track "All the Trouble." Rolling Stone Country compiled 13 times the Grammy-winner sang exactly what we all were thinking, see the list at rollingstone.com/country/lists/13-times-lee-ann-womack-sang-what-we-were-all-thinking-w435272 . 📸: @midnightspecialphoto
💕 About last night...
The magic of this city continues to bring SO much joy to my soul! Last night I walked down the street to enjoy some real country music from the legendary @leeannwomack!! _
She played a wide range of new music + her old classics, leaving everyone in the sold out crowd in awe of her raw talent!
Nights like this remind me of how lucky I am to live in a city where magic (across ALL genres of music) happens every single night. #nashvillelife#californiatotennessee#allthetroubletour#leeannwomack#basementeast#directorofvibes
