Dreams, ambition, love, and heartbreak come together in this new musical dubbed "A Tennessee Fiction." Based on Anton Chekov's 'The Seagull' this is the story of a fading country star returning home to Nashville. More…
After many years away, Tammy returns to the Honky Tonk that launched her music career to help the son she abandoned launch his own. But with jealousy and self destruction (along with copious amounts of whiskey) fueling this homecoming, will Tammy's arrival do more harm than good? 'Songbird' features a sultry soundtrack that pays homage to music and lyricist Lauren Pritchard's Nashville roots.
