Natalie Stovall and the Drive
When/Where: Sunday, June 8th, BMI Tailgate Party
Who: With a fiddle as her weapon and a booming voice, Natalie Stovall and her powerhouse band recently shook the pews at their Grand Ole Opry debut.
Why You Can't Miss Them: Stovall plays the fiddle like it's Joe Perry's Les Paul — something she recently illustrated with a raucous country cover of Aerosmith's "Livin' on the Edge." Stovall, true to form, replaced the guitar solo with trashing horsehairs, proving that she's not shy of flamboyant riffs or even Nineties rock. In fact, her debut self-titled EP, with her band the Drive, fires like a bluesy Carrie Underwood raised on Toys in the Attic and Bon Jovi.
