Abby Anderson brings the Girl Power Show to Flannagan’s Dublin.
Columbus Ohio. 10-27-18
The past year or two there has been a buzz around Nashville and Country Radio. The Statistics show that women don’t get near enough airplay as they did back in the day of Reba Trisha and Shania. When Flanngans Dublin announced their latest show they made an effort to help combat that issue by creating a show that was all about the GIRL POWER.
Kicking the night off were The Roos. These two local sisters hail from Croton Ohio and classify themselves as a rock/country cover band. The two may have had a tad bit of nerves on stage put on a great set. Their harmonies were very tight and their covers of “Lipstick by Runaway” June and “Taking Pills” by The Pistol Annies were also exceptional.
Next on the All Girl Lineup was another sister group called Steel Ivory who have recently been making a name for themselves in the song writing community in Nashville. These girls had such a great energy about them and their original songs had very relatable lyrics. The crowd loved their original song “Spittin Image” that they wrote in tribute to their Mother who was in attendance at the show. Steel Ivory was definitely the perfect act to get the crowd dancing and excited for the headliner of the show, Abby Anderson. We really enjoyed their mash up of all their favorite songs on Country Radio as well.
The crowd was definitely ready for a good time after Steel Ivory closed out their set and it was finally time for the wonderful headliner of the evening Miss Abby Anderson. The newest country addition to Black River Entertainment Label Group Abby has recently released her debut EP “I’m Good” as well as making her Grand Ole Opry last month. Her debut single “Make Him Wait” is currently playing on Country Radio as well and she was the opening act on Brett Eldredge’s The Long Way Tour. So needless to say Abby Anderson has been a little busy the past year. Following The Long Way Tour Abby is headlining a few shows this fall and writing more music to be released in the New Year. If you haven’t seen Abby live yet be prepared to be amazed. Vocally she cold sing the phone book and you’d want to sing along. Her energy and sound is a mix of Willie Nelson and Tina Turner. She’s what we like to call soul country. You can feel the lyrics in your soul and every song is relatable to someone in the audience. To close out the night Abby brought all the ladies back on stage for an impromptu version of Jolene and while it wasn’t perfect the harmonies were amazing. All three acts were stellar and we can’t wait to hear more of them soon!
