Wide Open Country Music at Nashville’s Bourbon Street and Boogie Bar with Brian Nutter

Reviewed by: MMPR
Nashville has a rich tradition of harboring extremely talented sidemen. Keith Urban lead-guitarist Brian Nutter has been working on his own project for a while now and is using a break in touring to venture out with his own band – bassist Sean Harrison, drummer Phil Wilson, and Lee Turner on organ. The quartet played their first show last Tuesday, November 15, at Nashville’s famous (and fantastic!) Bourbon Street Blues and Boogie Bar in Printers Alley.

Kicking off with wide-open country-rock songs ‘That’s Just You’ and ‘Money Does the Talking,’ the fast pace poured some energy into the room. Nutter felt we could do better, (he) explained the calm “sit-down Bluebird Cafe arrangement” wasn’t working for him and urged everyone to dance and have a good time. Slowly but surely the audience responded and was warmly commended for its efforts. Having extensively toured with Keith Urban, Nutter has had just about the best entertainment-mentor one could wish for and it’s obvious that the man knows how to engage an audience!


More romantic ‘I’ll Be that Man’ was quickly followed up with ‘Drink to This,’ a honky tonk party anthem and radio-hit-in-waiting. Acknowledgment of the genre came with ‘Country Song’ but for one woman it was all a little too tame. Repeated hollering for rock classics had Nutter delve into his repertoire of witty come-backs before finally giving in and flying into Black Sabbath‘s ‘Paranoid,’ sounding just like Ozzy. The set was closed out with the sweet, but rocking, ode ‘Red Sundress.’

Currently touring with Christian Kane (Now there’s another expert entertainer. If you’ve seen his band live you know exactly what I mean), Brian Nutter will be bringing his rock-influenced country to stages everywhere. It will put him in front of just the right audience to expand his growing fanbase, but most importantly, it will be a whole lot of fun for those lucky enough to catch a show!
