DAVID ARCHULETA

David Archuleta and Nashville ~ Music City, USA

I love when David goes to Nashville. He has said that in Nashville he had the best writing experience he’s ever had and that he always looks forward to returning. Whether he’s there to collaborate on songwriting, to visit friends, to meet with other musicians, to attend the Bonnaroo Music Festival next week or to go to Trader Joe’s, Nashville and David are a good match.

I have to admit that I’m fascinated with the town. It all began in 2006 when I was a fan girl of the rock band, Bon Jovi. What does Nashville have to do with a rock band? Jon Bon Jovi always wanted to do a country-inspired rock album so he decided to take his band to Nashville, also known as “Music City”. He hung out at The Bluebird Cafe where songwriters and musicians would flock to daily, to network and get inspired by other musicians to write new songs. They wrote some songs in a matter of minutes while other songs took more time to get right. Bon Jovi released “Lost Highway” in 2007 which was recorded in Nashville, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 charts and went platinum.

I learned back then that Nashville doesn’t exclusively produce country music, although the biggest country hits come out of there. The genres go from country to soul to jazz to pop to indie to rock to folk to hip hop to punk rock to R&B.

What is the hype about this place and what might David see while he’s there? What is the attraction and why do musicians and people in the entertainment field move there? Why has Nashville been among the top 5 friendliest places to live in the US? After scouring every blog, travel site and article I could get my hands on, here’s what I found:

Nashville is huge, one of the biggest cities in the US, spanning a whopping 553 square miles!  Many artists move to Nashville from NY and LA after they come for a visit and realize that the diversity of music makes it a desirable place to live if you’re in the music field. The town has respect for and is a very nurturing community for musicians. I learned that you can’t walk 5 paces without running into someone who plays music or works in the business in one way or another.

Catering to songwriters, there are hotels and cafes that host popular songwriter nights featuring live music from tomorrow’s stars.

“We have songwriters living here that have penned some of the greatest songs ever written, so it’s not uncommon to be at a writers night and someone like Gordon Kennedy is singing his hit ‘Change the World,’ which was recorded by Eric Clapton. Or you might hear Dan Penn doing ‘Do Right Woman’ made famous by Aretha Franklin.” ~Singer/songwriter Etta Britt

Imagine with me for a second…David is at The Bluebird Cafe on Open Mic Night or Writer’s Night. Someone hears him humming and asks if he would like to sing something for the small crowd of unassuming folk who are sitting at the tables. Anything he wants. No pressure. He agrees and a capella sings “What A Wonderful World.” Hey, a girl can dream.

“Being a huge college town fills the bars, coffee shops, streets, parks with young energetic people who add such a nice air of modernity to the place. The immense level of wealth in the community gives us an interesting mix of fine stores (many of the high end of privately owned boutique styles) and beautiful neighborhoods.” ~Anonymous

“The cost of living is relatively cheap and there are plenty of jobs. The economy is diverse and we have all four seasons. The amazing thing is that it has a small town attitude with the big city conveniences. And then, in 15 minutes, you can be in the woods, by a waterfall walking the trails and finding yourself a million miles from the world if that’s what you want.” ~Anonymous

“Nashville is home to the greatest music scene in America, wonderful colleges, and great places for entertainment, be it arts, sports, recreation, lakes, restaurants, trendy spots…you name it. It’s the most progressive city in Tennessee… It is now the most favored city in America for business relocation.” ~Anonymous

“It’s a city on the rise with a palpable buzz of energy all around.  It has great people, real friendly…the type of people who will walk up as a stranger and say hello with a smile.” ~Anonymous

“In Nashville, we don’t bug the celebrities when they are in public; it is an unwritten rule of decent behavior and respect. This is one reason why the celebrities like it here.” ~Emifriend, The Voice

“I love LA but Nashville is truly special. The southern hospitality and community support for struggling artists is the real difference. You don’t have to be wary of people here. It’s far more real than Hollywood. It’s a big but refreshing change.” ~Actress Hayden Panettiere of the TV show “Nashville”

Nashville’s big attractions include The Grand Ole’ Opry, The Ryman Auditorium and the Musicians Hall of Fame and Museum. The Bonnaroo Music Festival is a huge four-day outdoor event in Tennessee. This year the dates are June 12-15 and the top names are Elton John, Kanye West, Jack White, Lionel Ritchie and many, many others. David went to this festival when he was in Nashville in 2011. Maybe he will get to go again next week.

I hope David enjoys his stay in Nashville and sees it as a working vacation. I hope he takes his time and writes songs that are meaningful to him. Connecting with the right people who realize his talent can help steer him along the right path. However long it takes, I know it will be worth the wait.

    Whoohoo, Bebe, love your post! ” Imagine with me for a second…David is at The Bluebird Cafe on Open Mic or Writer’s Night.

He agrees and a capella sings “What A Wonderful World.” Hey, a girl can dream.” I was at the Bluebird Cafe in May, 2013 and it was awesome. It was when I met the awesome Emifriend and we sat through about 20 different musical numbers. So much fun, and seeing David there would have been out of this world! :) Been to Nashville 3 times and want to go again! I also love the nighttime soap “Nashville”!
    I hope that David stays long enough to really enjoy himself and be able to write a bunch of good songs! That album will be worth waiting for! ♥

    Great post Bebe! Thanks for being our travel guide,you’re the bestest!♥
    Wouldn’t be surprised if David stays,or at least returns for Bonnaroo.

    Bebe, Thank you for this, love it. We’ve talked so much about Nashville that it is in my buck list. David sure loves it there and our conversations, and emifriend have intrigued me, I must go there.

  5. djafan said

    I love downright, straight up good people too :)

    David is still in Nashville, wonder who he’s talking about.

    Maybe this guy?? He’s worked with Phillip Phillips and wrights pop and blues very interesting.

    @DavidArchie great to meet you and write!

    Welcome to my website!!

    People are always asking where they can find the songs I write. This is my version of WalMart or iTunes which I like to call iTrunk.

    I have cuts that cover a wide range of genres from the pop of
    American Idol Winner Phillip Phillips, the blues of 3x Grammy Winner Keb Mo, the country of Ronnie Dunn, Bucky Covington, and George Canyon.

    I am always searching for more to say thru my life and songs.

    Djafan,

    Thanks for the inspiration for this article!
    Hope all your questions were answered.
    How cool that Kari replied to your tweet about the tote bag from VIP!

    I went to Pete Sallis’ website and played his music samples.
    Doesn’t sound anything like David’s kind of music to me.
    I’m interested to see what came out of that writing session.

  10. jans11 said

    So happy that David is with people that he thinks are “straight up good people” :) They really are the best!

    Bebe, those pics sure bring back the memories! My daughter and I were looking for a much bigger place than that and were surprised it was a little “hole in the wall” place! But it sure has a lot of character! :) I’m sure that Emi will give you a good stamp of approval! Emi have you run into David at Trader Joe’s Yet???? :)

    Hoping David will stay for the Bonnaroo and it would be so awesome if he met Elton John!

    DJA, it’s great the way you always dig up the “goodies” and report to us! Thanx a bunch!

    I listened to some of Pete Sallis’ songs and I really love his band. I think that David might sound pretty good with it. Sometimes ideas work out better than thought. :)

    @gabscarterr@DavidArchie HEY YOU WERE JUST ON MY FLIGHT WE SHOULD HAVE TAKEN A PICTURE HOPE YOU HAD FUN IN NASHVILLE

    I have a feeling he’s not in Nashville anymore. Maybe he will come back for the Bonnaroo Music Festival weekend on the 12th.

    Bebe thanks for giving us a look into Music City, USA. Sounds like a place where “downright, straight up good people” reside. But then they can be found everywhere, can’t they?

    I hope David had fun and got some good writing done that he can be happy with and got a better idea of the direction he wants to go. I’m glad he’s not doing another album of covers or just “throwing anything out there.” It’s important going forward that he take the time to do it right and make it his own.

  12. lynnella said

    Bebe, Very interesting and informative article. My sister used to live in Nashville, and on one visit to see her, she took me to the Bluebird. It was fun to hear the songwriters singing their own songs.

    I just heard a TED Talk given by Sting about songwriting. It was so good, and he sang several songs. He closed with Message in a Bottle, and of course, that made me think of David singing it in his medley with Gotta Get Through This. I wish David could see this video. David, if you read this, go to this website and listen to Sting:
    http://www.ted.com/talks/sting_how_i_started_writing_songs_again

    He could learn a lot.

    Lynne

  13. jans11 said

    Sting’s video was very interesting, he is quite the story teller. Message in a Bottle sounds better when David sings it. :) He makes any song sound better! :)

    David sure can’t stay still for very long. Just have safe travels, David!

  14. lynnella said

    Jans11 – I thought what Sting said about writing what you know about was so interesting. It’s akin to saying keep it real. The thing about David is that, even though he went on a mission and has some life experience, he’s still so young and hasn’t really experienced that much life yet. The things Sting talked about in his life experience take years to come about. I hate that I probably won’t be around when David really reaches his peak. When he’s older and has been married and had a family and gone through more life experiences, I’m sure he’ll be a master at writing songs that people can really identify with. The songs on his Other Side of Down album were good, even if it didn’t sell that much. But, the older he gets the better he’ll get. It just makes me want to live to be 100, so I’ll be able to see just how good he gets. To quote Kari, The best is yet to come.

    Bebe, I really enjoyed this post (I enjoy all that is written here), but I think I need to visit Nashville. I have never been there, and it is easy to see now why David finds Nashville to be one of his “comfort places.” Good people, good food, great hospitality—not a bad springboard for creativity.

    Similarly, I find the majority of David’s fan base filled with “downright, straight up good people,” and I say that in spite of the recent rash of fan neurosis regarding his career. To me, it feels like just before the concert is to begin. We’re all milling around, chatting with fan friends, waiting for the music to start, and knowing that no matter what it took to get there, the trip will be worth it.

  16. bluesky4home said

    Loved your post, Bebereader. It was fun, informative, and invited interesting speculations. And…. makes us all want to visit Nashville. ^_^ DA has so many wonderful resources open to him right now. “what is he going to do, to do, to do???” And… when will we find out? Ha, ha!

    Archugeezer, I have probably said this before, but I will say it again: “I think I love you.” <3

  17. bebereader said

    Angelica,

    Thanks for bringing the tweet here. So David left Nashville. I hope he had a great time and met with an eclectic group of writers and musicians who inspired him to write meaningful songs. He sure inspires me to pay the city a visit.

    Lynnella,

    Thanks for your comment and for the Sting video. Very inspirational about how he started writing songs again. And you are one of the privileged who has visited The Bluebird!

    Archugeezer,

    Thank you! Since you can see why David finds Nashville to be a comfort place, I accomplished my goal!

    “To me, it feels like just before the concert is to begin. We’re all milling around, chatting with fan friends, waiting for the music to start, and knowing that no matter what it took to get there, the trip will be worth it.” <<< I totally agree!

    Bluesky,

    Loved your comment, Bluesky! I guess we'll find out what he's going "to do, to do, to do" soon enough. LOL

  18. jans11 said

    Lynella, I know what you mean about being around when David gets older and has more experiences…and hoping to be around to see it. Older fans may have less time to watch him reach his peak. Yes, I want to live to be 100 too to see that! :) Actually, my grandma sent me a birthday card when I was 50 and told me I was half way there! She was 98 at the time and lived to be 102! So far, so good….kind of moving in her footsteps! :) I feel blessed that I have had David in my life for the last 6 yrs and hope to be blessed for many more to see what he offers us all!

    This site seems to be full of “straight up good people”! :) Thanks to y’all for keeping it going. I kind of feel the same way, “To me, it feels like just before the concert is to begin. We’re all milling around, chatting with fan friends, waiting for the music to start, and knowing that no matter what it took to get there, the trip will be worth it.”

  19. Abrra said

    Bebe thanks for bringing a lil’ bit of Nashville here. I does make you excited to go there for a visit!

    We have to wait to find out the whole reason for David’s visit.

    Could it have been a simple as a birthday dinner invite?

    Can it be a short writer’s session with former Idols? I ponder.

  20. Bebe,

    That was refreshing. A crazy word that comes to mind but the place is just that way as you wrote. I was there once to see David sing a few years ago and you could feel the light hearted atmosphere even in the airport where performers were singing in the bars. It was a great stay and just being there a short while I thought that this would possibly be a place David would enjoy. Everyone should be there even just once.

  21. tawna21 said

    Thank you, Bebe. Some really fun information… and yes, Nashville is on my bucket list too. Thanks to all of the rest of you ‘downright, straight up good people’ for your insights and messages. I’m dealing with an overload of ‘stuff’ and your comments are refreshing and uplifting. :)

  22. MT said

    Bebe,
    Thanks for an interesting article! Someone ;) just got me interested in the television show Nashville and one of the places they sing is the Bluebird. I didn’t realize until this article that it was a real café for singers and songwriters. I would love to make a trip to Nashville and see the Bluebird Café. Of course if David decided to sing while I was there, it would be a HUGE bonus. LOL *dreaming*

    As a matter of fact, I’ve been hoping that when David does eventually tour, one of his stops will be Nashville. :D We’ll see if my dream comes true.

    Angelica,

    Bebe thanks for a wonderful job on this and all y’all are invited to come visit anytime! Make reservations at the Bluebird early~ it has been selling out every night since the show Nashville started airing. I think conde nast travel magazine has an article about Nashville this month.

    I went to Trader Joe’s twice this week but did not see our friend! It’s always kind of exciting to know David s running around town. I will keep y’all posted!

    Bebe’s article reminded me of an epic song by the Lovin Spoonful about Nashville and the people of Nashville:

    I suspect it’s all of the above plus more.

    SB,

    I remember when you went to Nashville for the taping of Orla Fallon’s Christmas Special in which David appeared as a guest. Your description of Music City makes me want to visit there more now!

    Tawna,
    It sounds like you’re really busy. Thank you for taking the time to read and comment. Hope you’re getting some rest and relaxation too.

    Emifriend:
    Sorry you missed David this time but there’s always another time.
    I wanted to do your hometown good!
    Thanks for your stamp of approval!

    Great newsabout Seasons! Pocoelsy’s edit is fabulous! ♥

  44. #42 Abrra The people in the picture are Scott and Rhonda Ford and Sandy Boyd. They are friends of David from when he stayed in their home several years ago when he was touring in Nashville. David had dinner with them last week when he was in Nashville they were at PF Chang’s there in Nashville.
    Rhonda told me that they just happened to run into David at the Provo Utah Temple today. She said that apparently she goes there every so often to do Temple work with his mission companions. She and her husband are here in Utah to meet with their daughter who lives here to help her get set up in the doTERRA business. I will also be meeting with her tomorrow night to get more training in the doTERRA business.

    Rhonda is my doTERRA up-line leader and they are Diamonds in that program. (means they are multi- millionaires from doing this business)

    It is quite possible they will be getting David to perform at the doTERRA 2014 convention ( I am definitely going as well as UTawna is going with me) If any one is interested there will be a concert on the Saturday of the convention for $10.00 the money will go to the “Helping Hands” program that doTERRA supports and sponsors. The other performers are “Diamond-Rio”, David Osmond”, and HOPEFULLY David A. no conformation on that yet, but they are working on it. If you want more info on that send me an email to djoorhontshoyn@gmail.com and in the subject line put – doTERRA convention concert.
    I will find out more information closer to the convention which is September 17 – 20th 2014 The tickets for the convention are all sold out, but the concert is open to ANYONE. Just saying that if anyone is here in Utah at that time they would be welcome to pay the $10 for the concert. (Like I said it is not confirmed that David will perform, but it is quite possible)

    Thanks for the tip Dorothy!

  47. tawna21 said

    Someone remind me… what does it mean when this new song is listed with ASCAP?

  48. Angelica said

    Tawna, don’t know but here is some wiki on it.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/American_Society_of_Composers,_Authors_and_Publishers

    Dang, someone said on another site today that Stadium of Fire tix were $775! They are actually $29 – $175. That was steep even if Carrie Underwood IS performing.

  49. tawna21 said

    Thanks Angelica!

    And yeah, there is no way on this green earth that Stadium of Fire would charge $775 for a ticket! They’d have one empty stadium – I do believe! :)

  50. betsy said

    Bebe, I meant to tell you earlier in the week that this a such a great article, I really liked it a lot. :)
    I know he’s no longer in Nashville, but I’m sure he loved it as much as he always does.

    Tawna – Pretty sure it’s an organization artists join to “patent” (wrong word, but similar meaning?) their material.

    “Join ASCAP to ensure you get paid when your music is played. Become a Writer and/or Publisher member today!”

  51. Abrra said

    In the music course I am taking, the professor says “Every time a song gets played, someone gets paid.” ASCAP monitors song royalties for authors. David is being smart by writing/publishing his own music. Singing covers isn’t that profitable.

    Abrra

  52. tawna21 said

    Thanks you guys for the education. That’s kind of what I thought, but I quite often don’t trust my thoughts. :)

    Dorothy, thanks for the info! Hope things pan out and we get video :)

    David does look mature in that picture and very handsome.

    Fascinating read on FOD this morning from the above source site on the death of the music industry as we know it and what David is facing going forward with his career in the age of the millennials. I think he was positioned to come on the scene at just the right time.

    Betsy #50, I think the word you were looking for is copyright. I’m not sure, but I think that what I was told when I wrote some music for the choir. I should get it copyrighted. Of course, like on so many things, I could be (copy)wrong (lol).

    That is one interesting, and informative, article. I have to agree… David is where he should be. Thanks for bringing the info here.

    Angelica, very interesting read. I say David should go for it. I see that artists like Bowersox, Cook, Allen, Abrahms, and other AI alums are making a living in music with a fraction of the support that David has. And that is only counting the active fandom. I know there are countless just waiting for him and will be back.

    Lynnella, I believe copyright is right lol You made laugh :)

    Bebe,
    haha Nashville is a really good show. I am hooked! And I’m keeping my fingers crossed for a Nashville David Archuleta concert and a trip to the Bluebird Café with you and hopefully some of the others here. The more the merrier! :D

    54. Angelica,
    Wow, that was a fascinating article. I can’t imagine how David is processing all the changes in the music industry over the past few years. I hope he has someone knowledgeable who can help him decide how to take control and how to get his music out there.

    I also hope someone out there is smart enough to take notice of David’s gorgeous smile and good looks and offer him an endorsement. Toothpaste? Hair products? Clothing? Shoes? Or a National Restaurant Chain! haha That boy loves food. Win Win! I’d love to see him on my TV in a commercial!

    I’m visualizing a concert in Nashville or somewhere closer. Focus with me, MT. Let’s make it happen!

    Angelica,
    Haha You got it! See it happen … make it happen. I will do my part!

    *Visualizing!* :D

    This looks like the studio for the June 24th chat? Not sure what MC refers to.

    In charge of the MC castings for the face to face David Archuleta event. Hay jóvenes buenísimos como presentadores. It is getting hard just to choose 2. One girl at the end if her audition said, “will you pick me? I really want to meet David”….
