Kyle Davidson: Sometimes you hear a song on the radio and it's just the song you want to hear right then, and then it's over and you're just glad you heard it.
Miranda Presley: And I'm like that song?
Kyle Davidson: No, you're nothing like that song. You're like if that was the only song in the world that I could hear for the rest of my life. You're that song.
River Phoenix, Samantha Mathis and Dermot Mulroney in "The Thing Called Love" - set in Nashville - they fell in love with each other and the sweet little taste of stardom, and as a little girl I fell in love with them and the dream of what those musicians' lives must be like.
Years later I consider myself of the musically romanced variety.
And this week I'm being romanced by Nashville, and like River's character ... I'm taking it all in and agreeing "there might be a song in that."
p.s. love, love to Ashley and Brooke of Bone Feather for sharing the Bone Feather Braided Bucket Bag with me. Handcrafted in the Nashville studio at Trac One - made to order deer skin leather with hand-carved buffalo bone feathers and 100% cotton lining - it's quite possibly the most perfect bag for coffee shop hopping all over this adorable town.
I'll plan to share all of my Nashville favorites when I'm back home in New Orleans. In the meantime, I'm off for another round of exploring. Kisses to Ben for snapping photos and showing me all around town each evening.
