CABIN FEVER: Week 4 at the Hard Rock!

2011 February 20

See the Pea Pickin' Hearts live at the Hard Rock Gatlinburg on Thursday, March 3rd at the Semi Finals!


The Cabin Fever Singer Songwriter series at the Hard Rock Gatlinburg began eight weeks ago.

This was the fourth of a six-night series and featured regional artists showcasing original acoustic songs in competition for nightly prizes as well as a series grand prize.  The Semi Finals are up next on March 3rd and will feature the first and second place winners from the four previous weeks.  The finals will be March 17th!

the following:

An 8-hour recording session courtesy of Music Row Studios, Appearances on Writer’s Block , Home Grown, Local Mix at Six, and the main performance stage at the Nashville Songwriter’s Festival on June 4, 2011.  I took the night off from picture taking so that we could just enjoy performing.  Forgive me.

We were wowed by the talent and appreciate this great start to a fantastic series. Don’t forget to come out and cheer during the Semi Finals on March 3rd!

The 3rd Place winner was Robert Lovett from Knoxville, TN.  Robert was a delight.  He was both a sweetheart AND incredibly talented.  I am not the only one that believed his train song to be the best written song of the night… our own songs included.  I think my favorite from his current CD is “Cheatin’ Songs.”  Here is some video of him participating in the Cabin Fever Series a couple of years ago.  Enjoy!

the Pea Pickin Hearts


We simply had a blast.  We started our show with Lottery Dreams–a silly song about what winning the lotter.  At some point in the evening, a Hard Rock patron came up to me and said, “You guys were great, but that first song was a little strange–a little yodle-y.”  Honestly, it made my night.  We finished up with “Cliche,” AKA “A Drunk, Cheat & a Charmer”.

Special thanks to all who turned out to cheer for us.


Is it too much to ask all of you for an encore experience as our audience?  Please come out on March 3rd and bring all of your closest friends.  No, really, ALL of them.  25% of our score is audience response.  We promise to sing different songs. 🙂

    Hi Robert! I was hoping our paths might cross again on March 3rd at the Hard Rock, hehehehe. Come on… you know we’re the underdogs. You saw that crowd; we could use a few folks cheering on our side!
