Pat Reedy, "Nashville Tennessee at 3 A.M."
They say nothing good happens after midnight, and Pat Reedy won't argue against it – but he won't argue for it, either. His latest song with his band the Longtime Goners, "Nashville Tennessee at 3 A.M." is exactly what it claims to be, a gritty, matter-of-fact snapshot of looking for someplace to go after the bars close. "The only thing that's cheap in these bars is talk," Reedy deadpans in his deep, drowsy drawl, knowing that his reality extends only as far as his boot steps will take him — an idea both freeing and oppressing, and all the more intoxicating because of it.
