Over the last few weekends, I have been playing John Prine's "Angel From Montgomery" at my gigs. I love that song, and it is always a crowd pleaser. During my last show at the Twisted Cork, my dad started a Facebook Live video while I was singing that song. Later that week, I took the video from his Facebook and posted it to my Instagram (@taylordyemusic) using hashtags like #johnprine and #angelfrommontgomery
To be completely honest, I didn't even know John Prine had an Instagram account, so it was really unexpected when I got a notification that John Prine liked my post. At first, I thought it was probably a fake account, so I clicked on it. When it opened, I noticed a little blue check mark meaning that was his real, verified account.
At this point, I was basically calling and texting everyone I knew to tell them, "JOHN PRINE WATCHED MY VIDEO AND LIKED IT!" I think I was getting a little out of hand after my husband told me that no, we were not having a party to celebrate someone liking my post... lol
I just wanted to share this and make sure it was documented because I am just so thrilled about it (obviously...) On another note, I have been scheduling lots and lots of shows for the coming year and I look forward to seeing you there and sharing my experiences!
