So she headed off all over the globe, visiting exotic locales like Brazil, Mexico, Bali, and Nashville.
"I have travelled by myself before, but specifically in this chapter, it was a lot more about 'I'm going to go to Nashville by myself and just have some time for me, and do some songwriting, have a bit more anonymity'. I could just pick up my guitar and go to a local bar or venue and just get up and sing. It's good to have that, because then I get to come home and do my own arenas and have big stadiums of people, which is great, but I like to have a balance."
She picked up the guitar in Nashville and wrote songs on it for the first time, enjoying the experimentation and discovery of a new instrument; but she still wrote much of the album on the piano at home in Los Angeles.
Thanks for the article.
It's a pretty well known rule in Nashville (and surrounding areas) that you don't bother artists when you see them out and about. It's why so many artists, even one's who are extremely well known, feel comfortable here. Delta's extra advantage is that she isn't a household name. I'm glad she was able to be free while in Tennessee.
I'm still laughing a bit about Nashville being called an exotic place in the article. I'm pretty sure the only exotic thing about it is the Rainforest Cafe.
