Covenant Wylder at Dirty Martini - Wednesday 23 February 2011

Covenant Wylder, known in real life as Rusty Horn comes to us live from Nashville, affectionately known as Music City USA. Covenant is a founding member of a Rockgrass band called Hayseed-Dixie. He has been onstage with legends such as Keith Urban, Patty Griffin, Kim Richey, Steve Earle, Toby Keith, Montgomery Gentry, Brooks and Dunn, and many others ! 

Dottie and I were very fortunate to be able to go and hear this powerful, passionate and soulful singer again, at Dirty Martini on Wednesday night :))

Cov is a professional musician, producer, and songwriter playing guitar, bass, or drums and singing. His massive songlist includes an amazing 52 originals !!

He began his show with one of these - Black Widow 

His deep, throaty, gravelly voice is strong, raw, and charged with deep emotion. Dottie says it gives her goosebumps :))

He followed with a cover from country music songwriter Delbert McClinton
When Rita Leaves

When Rita leaves, Rita's gone
She gave me every chance a man could want
I've never known a love so strong
Or so crazy when she's been done wrong When Rita leaves, Rita's gone
...... ..... .... ...

Another great cover followed. Indiana's Jace Everett's song Bad Things was used as the theme music for the vampire / human love story in tv series True Blood.

When you came in the air went out
And every shadow filled up with doubt
I don't know who you think you are
But before the night is through
I wanna do bad things with you

«´·.¸¸.• Grrrrrrr RUESOME !!!!

Dottie and I love this song :))        "Growl it Covie !! "

West Virginia's Bill Withers blues song Ain't No Sunshine followed -

Wonder this time where she's gone
Wonder if she's gone to stay
Ain't no sunshine when she's gone
And this house just ain't no home
Anytime she goes away
...... ..... .... ...

And then another original When You're Not Here 


Half way through the show there were 16 people in the audience.  Cov's performance deserves many more !!  He puts his heart and soul into his songs, he sings them well and with great style !!  He's an outstanding guitar player so noticeable when he goes off on a riff !!

Elton John's Rocket Man was followed by Cov's original California
*¨*:•:•*¨¨*• RIDE THOSE STRINGS •*¨¨*•:•:*¨*

A very appreciative audience enjoyed Cov's show immensely.  No one sings like Cov, his voice is unique and his singing heartfelt.  Dottie and I have heard him many times before and will go back again and again.  Thank you Cov :)))

Six gospel songs are on Cov's songlist, he also covers some 110 other songs from -
Gentle On My Mind to Jumpin Jack Flash to Lips Of An Angel to Something In The Way She Moves to Sweet Melissa to The Beauty of Who You Are.

Rusty Horn is a soulful singer-songwriter with passion and grit. His songs stir people on a gut level.

" Peace and love everybody !!  "
