I've never had a "favorite" singer before. That's until I heard of Brandi Carlile. Early in the year I found out about her, bought both of her cd's and I'm pretty sure that I played THE STORY on "repeat all" for over a month. It's never in my nature to listen to an entire album on repeat. BUT I just can't help it with her music.
When I first got THE STORY, I made sure roll down the windows, turn up the volume, and sing (more like SING!) along. One of those many times, an unfortunate day, the speaker on the left side of the dashboard just busted (not a pretty sound). I mean, seriously... So thankfully - Pearl is still under warranty and she'll be taken care of! And I will never do that again (maybe).
This past weekend she was here in Houston! And I've gotta say that she is freaking AMAZING! If you like her music, she's even better in person! She did this whole unplugged thing where she got out from behind the mic, the boys unplugged their guitars and they sang. You don't get that anymore! She sang Bohemian Rhapsody (unfinished because she's still learning the chords on the piano), Folsom Prison, and B.C. originals! If she ever comes by your town/city YOU SHOULD go! You won't regret it.
