JR and John Anderson Present: "An Evening With The Johns"
The Bluebird Café’s 2011 BirdSongs series kicks off on Wednesday
April 27 at 9PM with an extra special evening featuring country music
legend John Anderson and John Rich.
The show will be an acoustic performance - featuring songs and stories
from the extensive catalogues and careers of the renowned
singer/songwriters as well as new material the two are in the process of
The BirdSongs series was created last year to help pay off the debt
accrued through NSAI’s purchase of the legendary club, a venue that has
been instrumental in the development of so many performers’ careers.
Songwriters from rising stars to top hit writers rallied to help the
venue that gave many of them a start. This year artists are joining the
ranks of those who recognize the significance of this tiny, yet
influential music club and are lending their support through a series of
shows that will benefit The Bluebird Café and ensure its future.
Rich, like so many other performers in Nashville, has a history with
the venue, “I'm very excited and honored to be a part of the Bluebird's
Birdsongs Series with my honky-tonk hero John Anderson! I feel that he
is the George Jones of my generation. I consider the Bluebird an
important place in the history of my personal career, as it was the
place that "Big and Rich" was first ever called "Big and Rich" in an
official capacity when we did an acoustic set there in 2002. I hope
other artists come on board and join this artist series and help the
Bluebird stay strong by putting a big dose of gas in the tank with some
high profile performances. God bless the creators in this town, and God
bless the Bluebird for being the steeple on the church of country
