I started to write this show in my head the summer after my first solo show, 6 Guitars, premiered. I really loved 6 Guitars and was proud of what it allowed me to showcase, but I felt like it had a slight weakness in the storytelling department. None of the stories from the characters at the time are directly connected. This lent itself to a cabaret feeling rather than a complete, cohesive narrative. My goal was to raise the bar with my storytelling in Nashville Hurricane. . As for the music, I had just discovered the music and guitar mastery of Tommy Emmanuel. This Australian fretboard wizard redefined what I thought was even possible on the instrument, and I wanted that to inspire my arrangements for the guitar parts in this show. Funny enough, I got to play music with him years later. It was an evening I’ll never forget. The show first premiered in 2012 to positive reviews, but something felt amiss. It was a rough draft, and like all rough drafts, it was a bit too long and meandering. So I rewrote the whole show with my co-creator Jay Hopkins, and by the summer of 2013, we had a brand new Nashville Hurricane that became the version now in residency at The Studio Theatre Tierra del Sol. From the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU for coming out and supporting live theatre. The last few years have been challenging for us show folk, but seeing your smiling faces after such a long ordeal makes a world of difference to me and everyone else at Victory Productions. You really do make the magic happen.
