Sandy Mason, award-winning singer/songwriter, worked her magic last night on an enthusiastic crowd at Nashville’s most beloved musical venues, the Bluebird Café. Sandy performed songs from her latest album, Out There And In Here as well as one of her best-loved hits, “Two Pina Coladas,” which reached #1 in 1998 for Garth Brooks.
The evening was topped off with a surprise performance by country legend and one of Sandy’s good friends, Crystal Gayle. A captivating audience listened as Crystal sang “When I Dream,” a song that was written by Sandy and was first recorded by Crystal in ‘78. “Sandy is such a wonderful friend,” said Crystal. “When I first heard this song, knowing Sandy, it was such a special song. I always say that she went into her heart when she wrote this.”
Much laughter and even moments of tears completed what Sandy called, “The best show in town!” “It’s always a pleasure to have those wonderful musicians with me…and the crowd was into it, feeling the songs with me.”
Much feedback was received after the show, including a couple traveling from Michigan to Florida. They pulled her aside to tell her they stopped into the Bluebird for the first time and to the couple’s delight, Sandy’s show was the best they had ever seen.
