I saw on TY.com that Trisha will be at the Bluebird Cafe in late August. It says that tixs go on sale one week prior to the show, I didn't know if anyone here knew how you went about getting tixs for a show at the Bluebird Cafe. I went to their website but didn't see any info. Thanks. I would love to be able to see Trisha and this is as close as she is coming to me this year. Thanks!

Here's a link that gives you the info on making reservations: Bluebird Reservations (http://www.bluebirdcafe.com/about/reservations.shtml). Good luck...it's most likely going to be sold out quickly, particularly since the Bluebird is so small.

Hey everyone,
This is my first time posting here. I just did a long post over at Trishayearwood.com about my experience at the Bluebird tonight. Tomorrow I'll post more about it here, but I'm really tired right now. I got to talk to Trisha after the show tonight! I still can't believe it!!

08-27-2002, 10:05 AM
Hey it was an amazing show. Trisha looked great. Thanks so much for another Garth angel that got me in.. it was really a great show. They messed up alot of songs which is way funny and had to do it over for TV. I wish you could get a copy of the unedited version.Trisha even told a dirty joke to make us laugh out of a very sad song. I did get to meet her and hopefully my pic will turn out but it was quite dark in there. I got to talk to Johnny Garcia for a bit he is a funny guy. Unfortunately most of the people that where in there were "industry folks" and the good fans where outside but some did get in after a break they took. It was alot of Trisha just sounded amazing. I will try and do a song list but I'd prob mess up. songs I reemeber are "She's in Love with the boy", Xs and Os, Perfect Love, Melancholy Blues, Real Live Woman, For a while, The Song Remembers When,The Wrong Side Of Memphis, Walkaway Joe,Like We Never Had A Broken Heart.

I think that is all of them..
the other two songwriters where very talented ladies.. They have wrote alot of hits and had great voices. It was an amazing nite at the Bluebird ans sure was great to see Trisha she sure looked happy :)

PS:Welcome Stacey ..were you the girl behind me :) glad your posting. PG rocks ;)

08-27-2002, 10:12 AM
Does anyone know when this will be broadcast and on which station?


08-27-2002, 10:36 AM
I know that it's gonna be broadcast on Turner South, but I'm not sure when. If it's anything like the Songwriter's Hall of Fame taping it probably won't be on for a couple of months!


08-27-2002, 11:08 AM
the owner of the blubird said they don't have an airdate yet. If anyne finds out, please post! Maybe we'll be able to see me looking in the window!!

08-27-2002, 12:43 PM

Well Greeny.. If it's a dirty joke.. it's probably not appropriate to post on the forums.

I'd love to hear it too.. but we'll have to do it through email or PM.



08-27-2002, 01:16 PM
WELL THEN.........could someone PM me with the joke?

Sounds like a great show! And she was obviously funny, as usual. Hope to hear even more details.


08-28-2002, 02:48 PM
Oh my gosh, How FUNNY is that?! I would Love to have heard that-_I've heard her joke around and such before, but that's way to funny, I LOVE that Trisha is just Soooo real, and not afraid to be herself! Love that! Thanks SOOO MUCH for sharing the night with us, and the joke! Yes, I'd love to hear more about the night....
And I PRAY to see it when it airs....

08-28-2002, 02:53 PM
I doubt they will leave the joke in there because she said I hope editing will take care of this.. so I don't think they will leave it on. It did shock alot of us and then she said and that is my cleanest joke..LOL she is a funny girl.

I'm trying to remember other details.. Before she sang "The song remembers when" well she told us that she had just come from the memorial for Denny Purcell a music engineer that had worked on almost all of her albums. She did the song for him.

I found this article that was posting on the Garth about the memorial-

Brooks, Yearwood Among Purcell Mourners
Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood were among the musical luminaries who attended funeral services Monday (Aug. 26) for Nashville mastering engineer Denny Purcell. (A mastering engineer does the final adjustment and balancing of sound before a record is manufactured.) Purcell, who was 51, was found dead in his office at Georgetown Masters on Aug. 22. A source who attended the services at Harpeth Hills Memory Gardens Funeral Home reports that Nanci Griffith sang “It’s a Hard Life” and John Prine “Bruised Orange (Chain of Sorrow).” Musician-songwriters Josh Leo and Vince Melamed performed “In My Life.” Singer Gail Davies also spoke to the mourners about Purcell’s importance to producers and recording artists. 8/27/02

There was some kind of dealth theme going and in a strange way it was funny, sounds bad but it wasn't , Matraca Berg told how she wrote a song while drinking whiskey with Harlan Howard's kids after his memorial.. I think the song was called. Bad Men and Bad Whiskey something like that its gonna be on Denna Carters new album, if I remember correctly.

so if I think of anything else cool I'll let you know ;)


08-28-2002, 07:15 PM
Can anyone tell us more about Mr. Purcell, his work with Garth, Trisha, and the industry, and cause of death?

08-28-2002, 07:46 PM
Mr. Purcell was I think either the owner or one of the owners of Georgetown Masters in Nashville, they do the final sound mixing/editing before an album is made. Mr. Purcell was 51 years old and it was speculated, not confirmed that he died of a either a heart attack or a stroke. He has worked with tons of artists in all genres of music including I think all of Garth's albums and most of Trisha's. He is noted for his innovations in recording and at the time of his death was working on a new project involving recording technology. He was obliviously a very special person who touched the lives of the people he worked with and will be sadly missed.

More info from countrystars.com, this tells a little more than the cmt.com article.

Unless you're the kind of fan that reads every credit on a CD cover, you won't know the name Denny Purcell, a mastering engineer who died suddenly late last week. His passing saddened those involved in the Nashville record making community, many of who attended his memorial Monday. Few fans will know exactly what he did to a record, but they benefited from how much he contributed to each one, utilizing his art to perfect the final process before an album goes into duplication. Purcell mastered over 8,000 albums with over 500 of them earning precious metal, Gold or Platinum.
Vince Gill told the Tennessean, "The mastering process is like framing a beautiful piece of art. He really cared about it. What a great lover of music. He would listen in an entirely different way than most people would. I just trusted him.''
Our friend John Dotson noted, "Rarely in my 30 years here have I seen so star-studded and touching an event for a member of the community whose name would not naturally roll off the tongue of at least a million record buyers. Collectively though I am sure his name and mark are on tens of millions of records."
In addition to industry executives, most of the biggest hit producers were there as well as performers like John Prine, Nanci Griffith, Trisha Yearwood and Garth Brooks.
Note: Over the years Garth Brooks has been laid back and unpretentious as he generally drove himself to and from Nashville events. And, Garth drove himself and Trisha to Purcell's service in his "real deal" farm truck. No entourage or special recognition, they stood in the back with others who didn't get a seat and paid their respects.

Thank you so much JMR for answering me by sharing that. :)

08-30-2002, 11:52 PM
thanks for the article.. how very sad :( He will be missed greatly :(

Earth has lost a friend but Heaven has gained an angel :)

I noticed Trisha's site lists the show as including Matraca Berg and Crystal "Gale". Aside from the spelling of Crystal's name - is that right? I've never even known of her to play the Bluebird. (But would love to hear that!)

For those of you who were there - did Crystal show up?

09-15-2002, 01:17 AM
She did at King Center in Melbourne, Florida. I saw a framed photo of her displayed from a concert she did there back in 92 or 95? Same with Dolly. But guess who's photo greeted me first last night as we went toward our seating section? Trisha's! It was from May 95 I believe. After that I saw one for Willie Nelson earlier that same year. I took photos of those two. :)

Trisha Yearwood recalls in this excerpt from the book:

"Right after I signed with MCA Records in 1990, I had to do a showcase for the entire record label, of songs from the first album. I had never met half of these people, and of course I was terified. I would be doing my show at the famous Bluebird, which made me even more nervous. I remember sound check in that empty room and knew that the nervousness I felt with no one there would only be magnified by ten by the time the place filled up that evening. I had bought a pair of black leggings and a gold jacket for the occasion. I remember that I had gone to a cloth store and bought a shiny button for the coat to replace the ordinary-looking one that it had so that I would look more like an 'artist'!
The night ended up being magical and memorable, and the beginning of a wonderful career and wonderful friendship with the Bluebird. It is one of the historic sites in Music City for me and for all. I'll be someone is stepping through that door tonight, with that nervous anticipation of wondering who they'll spot, or even better, who they might meet. The dream goes on. I'm proud to be a part of it all."
