Cheley Tackett is one of Nashville’s most well-known and revered singer/songwriters in both the country and Americana genres. She’s collaborated with some of the best in the business, including Ashley McBryde, Lisa Carver, Randall Clay and many other hit songwriters. Tackett is pleased to announce the upcoming release of The Last Live, her acoustic-solo performance recorded at Douglas Corner in Nashville, Tennessee on August 24, 2019. The album title says it all. It truly was the very last live performance recorded at the venue before it closed its doors forever on May 30, 2020 due to the pandemic.

Cheley Tackett’s live album will release to all major online retailers on May 21, 2021, nearly one year to the day that Douglas Corner shut down for the last time.

“We recorded my annual birthday bash show and thought we’d release the resulting album in spring 2020. Turns out, we all sat at home in lockdowns and live music ceased to exist. Douglas Corner was one of the first venues forced to permanently close its doors. What Douglas Corner has meant to me and the history that it held for Music City is indescribable. Lingering in the brick walls we all leaned against on the busiest nights are melodies and applause from shows and songwriter rounds performed by no-names, some that became known names, and a few that became household names. I hope these tracks help preserve a small sliver of this beloved venue.” ~ Cheley Tackett.

The former owner of the iconic Douglas Corner Cafe, Mervin Louque, engineered, mixed and mastered the recording. He remembered that evening, “Whether derived from her upbringing, or her experiences with love and relationships, Cheley Tackett’s songs and performances can leave even strangers feeling as if they have a personal relationship with her.”

I'm Patti. Rock music is my first love. Country came later, but once I was in, I was all in. I'm a history geek, so I love learning about classic country and anything attached to it. You might find me strolling the cemeteries of Nashville, having silent conversations with the songwriters and artists that shaped this amazing genre. I'm an amateur genealogist with over 20,000 people on my family tree. I'm a Buffalo, New York girl living in a Nashville, Tennessee world with my husband and my furry kids. My real kid is an adult and lives in New York with her own three daughters. I'm addicted to SongPop and I don't care to enter rehab to fix that. If you ask me about myself, I'll tell you I have an eight-year old mind, a 77-year old soul and a middle-aged body. I'm a mess. :)
