What a wonderful opportunity! It must be a dream come true to perform at the Grand Ole Opry. And something about being in Nashville seems to bring out the best in him. This is very exciting!

I am so excited for him! This is an amazing opportunity and accolade for him! Not trying to sound condescending when I say this but I am so proud of Matt! He has come such a long way since his audition on American Idol! Then he was just a bar player with incredible talent and now he is an incredible musician headed towards an amazing career! I can't wait to watch his career take off!

Nice pictures, cranberry!

I did some searching for a review of Anna's concert, and didn't find one, but did find a couple of press releases from last week about her upcoming album.

http://www.countrymusictattletale.com/2010/11/08/keith-urban-rascal-flatts-lady-antebellum-and-more-on-upcoming-anna-wilson-album

http://www.musicrow.com/2010/11/anna-wilson-jazzes-up-countrypolitan-duets/

It looks like the promotion for the CD is starting early. I think it is going to be like this from now until February 1 and beyond. Didn't they sound amazing last night? I hope they'll keep singing it all over the place.

Thanks so much for the video! Wow!

Anna tweeted the following wonderful review of her concert:

http://www.wineandjazz.com/posts/jazzcountry-singer-anna-wilson-goes-countrypolitan-at-the-grand-ole-opry/

Here is the part about Matt:

Quote :

She closed by bringing down the house with an incredibly soulful rendition of Walker’s jazz/country standard “You Don’t Know Me,” performed with the brilliant, versatile and stylish Giraud. What a treat it was later, at the afterparty at the swanky Hermitage Hotel, to hear Anna and Giraud reprise the song more casually at the piano in the hotel lobby with a crowd gathered around them. This was a moment topped only perhaps by me dueting with Giraud when he played Elton’s classic “Tiny Dancer”!

I'm copying this link from MattsFTLs, the "Better Nashville" television interview Matt and Anna Wilson did on 11/15. "You Don't Know Me" is going to be released to radio!!!

Please, please, please go post a comment on MJs today about the Matt and Anna Opry performance video. I pushed real hard to get MJ to post that video because I thought it was important for people besides us to know Matt performed at the Opry. It would help Matt tremendously to show that MJ's readers are interested in what Matt is doing. Every time MJ posts a video, it gets lots of views for Matt and gets the word out about what he is doing. Positive comments show interest and motivate other people to watch the video.

Here's the link:

Thanks to those of you who have already commented!
