I had the distinct pleasure of seeing Christy Hays perform last night at the Magnolia Motor Lounge with Ali Holder. She is on tour to promote her new album, O’ Montana.
I have been a fan of Ms. Hays for about 3 and a half years now. When I was down in Austin for business, I took a walk down Guadalupe St. I got all the way down to the Hole in the Wall and was about to pass by when I noticed a pair of shapely legs then noticed her sweet voice. I picked up her self titled album and saw her once again about a year later. After that, I kept up with her through social media and picked up her second album Drought.
When my marriage hit the rocks, I reached out to Ms. Hays to commission a song. Unfortunately things fell apart before she completed it. It was about a year ago that I sat in the same bar with a friend lamenting my relationship and trying to figure out what to do. It was fitting that I got to hear the song I had inspired played in that same bar. It’s been great seeing this musician grow as an artist. I hope to see her go far with her craft.
Oh…and Ali Holder was amazing too, so thanks to Ms. Hays for introducing me to a new artist.
