Last night I attended the second annual Writers in the Round event at the Bean Market in Lake City, SC. This kind of event is very rare for our area and I will tell you why. Typically a writers in the round event is comprised of the music industries best writers sitting around, telling how a song came about, and then singing it. These events normally happen in areas that have a thriving music industry, like Nashville for instance. If anyone reading this is a fan of the television show Nashville, then you are definitely familiar with the Bluebird Cafe. It has become on of the most famous writers in the round establishments. Night after night, they have amazing line ups comprised of some of country music’s most legendary writers. Tickets go on sale for each night and are literally gone within minutes! My husband and I were lucky enough to snag some tickets on a trip to Nashville earlier this year. My husband is a HUGE country music fan, so he was obviously very excited. I wasn’t really sure what to expect but we were both blown away! Just witnessing these talented writers talk about their inspiration and what certain songs mean to them was so moving! We ended our night at the Bluebird cafe listening to writer Mark Sanders sing a little song you may know that he wrote called “I hope you Dance.” It is one of my all time favorite country songs and it was SO cool to hear the man that wrote it sing the beautiful lyrics. Anyway, back to last nights event! There is a big time country music writer that has ties to this area and that is how we are so lucky to have an event like this come to our area. We didn’t get to go last year so we had been looking forward to the event for weeks. The writers that came were great and have written songs for Eric Church, George Strait, and Brad Paisley, just to name a few!
I opted to wear one of my favorite BCBGMAXAZRIA dresses. One of their signatures is flowy dresses that have a high low hem and I am a huge fan! They are so versatile! I wore this one to work yesterday with a pair of flats and changed into my trusty Gianvito Rossi botties(similar here) and added a fun blazer, also by BCBG, for the event. Not only do their dresses like this look great on but they are very comfortable and travel well. I accessorized with a Raoul bag, Dannijo earrings, and Eddie Borgo bracelets!
The writers that were at the event were not only uber talented but were also comedians! I am already looking forward to next years event!
After the event was over we headed over to Table 118 for a nightcap and some great times with wonderful friends! Happy Weekend everyone!!
