This week our Song of the Day blog is curated by singer and actress Lauren Worsham who will be performing at the NYFOS Gala on April 5th alongside David Hyde Pierce, Hal Cazalet, and Bryce Pinkham. She has starred with New York City Opera and Fort Worth Opera as well as on Broadway in A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder for which she won a Drama Desk Award and was nominated for a Tony Award. She is also the lead singer for the rock band, Sky-Pony.
Growing up in Austin, TX – this was one of the first songs I learned to sing. Toni Price is a local Austin legend and never performs without a bottle of Jack on stage. This song typifies Austin-style Texas blues. I love the cheekiness of the lyrics and the easy country twang of her voice.
