One of the best things about going to a show at one of Nashville's many small clubs or intimate venues is that you never know who will show up.
When The Time Jumpers, whose members include Vince Gill and Riders in the Sky's Ranger Doug, hosted their annual Monday night show at 3rd & Lindsley last night (Apr. 8), the audience was a who's who of country and rock VIPs. And while Elton John's right-hand man, Bernie Taupin, producers Emory Gordy (Patty Loveless) and Tony Brown (Vince Gill), and Opry legend Jeannie Seely remained seated in the crowd, Patty Loveless and Rodney Crowell hopped up onto the stage to perform with the band of Nashville's finest musicians. The band played two hours of Western swing from Bob Wills to Ray Price, stopping for a few minutes between sets to visit with fans.
It was sure nice to see the band's Dawn Sears, who was recently diagnosed with stage 3 lung cancer, front and center with the band, sounding like an absolute angel.
