The talented Nashville based singer-songwriters David Olney and Tommy Womack make a rare joint appearance at Natalie’s for a very special night of music not to be missed!
One of the early pioneers of what has become known as Americana music, David Olney has released more than 20 albums over four decades, and is often likened to Tom Waits, Johnny Cash and Randy Newman. His intelligent compositions have been recorded and performed by Emmylou Harris, Linda Ronstadt, Del McCoury, Steve Earle, Lonnie Brooks, Tim O’Brien, and many more. Olney’s “Postcard From Mexico” (co-written with John Hadley) song was prominently used in the ABC-TV “Nashville” show. He is well-known for his energetic live performances packed with such intensity it leaves audiences with a truly memorable experience. His latest album is the acclaimed “Don’t Try to Fight It”.
Singer-songwriter, author, humorist and Kentucky native Tommy Womack got his start with legendary Bowling Green based post-punk and college radio faves, Government Cheese (who’s story is immortalized in Tommy’s cult classic book “Cheese Chronicles”). Tommy has released seven solo albums, the latest being “Namaste”. In addition to “Cheese Chronicles”, Tommy is the author of the comic Civil War novella “The Lavender Boys & Elsie”, has written for many magazines, including the Oxford American, and is a regular contributor to The East Nashvillian. Tommy’s songs have been covered by Jimmy Buffett, Todd Snider, Jason and the Scorchers, the Del Lord’s Scott Kempner, and others.
