Daily Discovery: Lulu Mae, “The Mockingbird And The Dogwood Tree”
ARTIST: Lulu Mae
BIRTHDATE: A good stretch of the early 80s.
AMBITIONS: Quit our jobs, open a bar, own more dogs.
TURN-OFFS: “Supposably,” “I’m just not much of a dog person,” being on one’s phone while ordering coffee.
TURN-ONS: Girls who can fish, speak French, stitch up wounds, drink whiskey, or play upright bass. Guys who treat their mommas nice, keep the bathroom clean, and make a girl laugh. Dog lovers.
DREAM GIG: Cliché though it may sound, if we got hit by a bus immediately after finishing a headlining show at the Ryman we would all die happy. And gruesomely.
TV ADDICTIONS: Parenthood, Walking Dead, How I Met Your Mother, Top Gear (BBC), Archer.
CELEBRITY CRUSH: From Ben, the only unmarried band member: there are quite a few, but some that come immediately to mind are Grace Potter, Tina Fey, Aubrey Plaza, and Madi Diaz (local up-and-coming celebs count, right?)
MY GO TO FEEL-GOOD RECIPE: Pumpkin cookies.
PETS: Joel and Sarah – June (Golden Doodle); Adam and Jen – Dave (Westie) and Wanda (Doberman); Ben – Penny (Manchester Terrier mix.)
MY NIGHTLY RITUAL BEFORE BED: Reading, letting the dogs out, a thousand pushups.
I WROTE THIS SONG: reflecting on how great life and Tennessee are, realizing I have nothing to complain about.
Lulu Mae will perform at the 2012 Fall Season Closer of Musicians Corner, Saturday October 27th in Nashville’s Centennial Park. Music begins at 2:30 PM and includes other performances from The Vespers, Ashley Cleveland and April Rucker.
