Jonell Mosser at the library

One of the great things about living in Nashville is that many world-class musicians make their homes here. Today at Noon a friend and I walked a few blocks from the office to the public library to hear Jonell Mosser perform.

Jonell has sung in the studio with Etta James, Rodney Crowell, Patti Smyth, Vince Gill, B. B. King, Wynonna, A. J. Croce, John Gorka, Waylon Jennings, Trisha Yearwood, Maura O'Connell, Lee Roy Parnell and many others.

She recorded and performed as The New Maroons with Ringo Starr, Don Was, Benmont Tench and Mark Goldenberg, including a performance at Farm Aid, and has also performed with Delbert McClinton, Levon Helm, John Prine and Keb Mo'. Bonnie Raitt brought her on stage at the Saratoga Performing Arts Center to share the lead vocal on Prine's "Angel From Montgomery". Jonell has appeared on TV shows "The Road", "Austin City Limits" and "American Music Shop", and on the movie soundtracks for"Hope Floats", "Boys On The Side" and "Look Who's Talking Now".

And I just got to see her perform live, free.

What a great city I live in!
