Review and Photos by Butch Worrell of One Heart Photo
It was musical photography feast time in Nashville last Thursday night! Three venue's, 6 bands were on the table. 12th and Porter's “Toys for Tots” show continued to rock on.
Toys for Tots Emcee, “Papa” Raines, played Santa Claus and gave the audience a very nice gift indeed, The Raelyn Nelson Band”!!
“Papa” introduced them as a band “where Loretta Lynn meets Cheap Trick. Or perhaps as one of their original songs go...”Jack and Loretta” ,ie. Jack White meets Loretta Lynn. No matter how you try to compare them though it comes down to one inescapable fact, Raelyn Nelson and “The Raelyn Nelson” band rock hard. And were/are good enough to take the opening act slot at “Farm Aid” this year. So thank you “Papa” for that priceless gift of music you bestowed upon us, “The Raelyn Nelson Band”
