My family of 5 recently went on a trip to good ole Nashville, TN. We drove from Texas, but we have good travelers so it was a nice trip. Having 3 kids with us, one of which is under 6 months old, we were somewhat limited on the places we were able to go. We wanted to experience the live music, honky-tonk air that is Nashville as much to the fullest as possible while there.
We found ourselves at Opry Backstage Grill where they have live music on stage for their guests. We were seated and soon our waiter was tending to our table. His name tag simply said ‘Wes.’ He was friendly and pleasant and seemed to enjoy working there. Overall, the whole town was like this which is a welcomed change for us. Shortly after we received our food (which was delish!) our waiter took the stage. We weren’t sure what to expect but just having the kids see someone singing on stage in Nashville was cool enough for us. We were blown away by the talent this “waiter” poured out on stage. He sounded good enough that it could have been a recorded song on the radio. Most big stars don’t sound that good “live.”
After he was done on stage, he returned to our table and picked up where he left off. My husband and I talked to him a bit and found out that he was a singer and songwriter and had moved to Nashville in hopes of being discovered. He works at the restaurant and performs as often as he can. He gave us his card and I did some research on him after we left.
His name is Wesley Cash and according to his bio on Facebook, his musical background runs deep. He began playing fiddle in a bluegrass band in Kentucky when he was just 8 years old. He also plays classical violin, saxophone, bass, guitar, harmonica and a little bit of per cussion. He spent his childhood playing music in nursing homes and bringing joy to elderly residents. Wesley began song writing at 15 years old using his high school crushes and “love” as his inspiration. At the age of 27, he moved to Los Angeles and played gigs there for several months before ultimately making his move to Nashville.
He currently performs in a duo called The Nashville Nobodies with a fellow singer and songwriter named Travis Bishop. They play in different places around downtown Nashville. He has a website devoted to him that features his music, pictures and upcoming shows. You can also watch Wesley’s videos on YouTube. However, if you want the full experience stop in and see him perform live, but don’t wait too long. This guy is going places.
