This song is a real gem. Meaghan Blanchard’s “Watchin’ The Dandelions Grow” is a testament to her most excellent songwriting. Bringing home Country Recording of the Year this year at ECMW 2014 should only be the start of her award wins and a very long career. She is super special, and I implore you to keep your eyes out for her and GO SEE A SHOW if she’s near you.
I caught her live for her CD release show late last year and it was simply stunning. Her stage presence, her stories, her grace and charm (and wit!), how she handles a huge full band standing front and centre, a short (sorry, Meaghan!) red haired cutie with a pretty dress, a big guitar and cowboy boots. Let’s not forget the voice. A little bit Dolly Parton and a little bit PEI tradition.
I’ve posted a live / somewhat solo clip below, but do head on over to her website to listen to the recorded version (and maybe the rest of the record while you’re there). Our country sweetheart, that Miss Blanchard.
OK – Me again. I HAD to also post this from 2010. Gives a good sense of her live act. Also – I love this song 🙂
