My Baby’s So Fancy

First thing’s first, I’m the realest

Drop this and let the whole world feel it

And I’m still in the Murda Bizness I could hold you down,

like I’m givin’ lessons in physics

You should want a bad baby like this

Drop it low and pick it up just like this

Cup of milk, cup of Goose, cup of Cris

High heels, somethin’ worth a half a ticket on my wrist

Takin’ all the milk straight, never chase that

Rooftop like we bringin’ ’88 back

Bring the hooks in, where the bass at?

Breastmilk spillin’, you should taste that

Puttin’ On Our Fancy Pants

Last weekend our Aunt Amy, the Blue Bird Aunt Amy, was honored with a very special award. She received the Frances Williams Preston Mentor Award from the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame. Pretty fancy, right? She invited us to attend the awards ceremony at Nashville’s new Music City Center, and we could not wait to get all dressed up and hit the town.

I was a little worried about finding a formal outfit to go with my ever-growing bump, but I ended up having a lot of fun dressing me and the baby bump.

The ceremony began with the presentation of NSAI’s (Nashville Songwriter’s Association International) 2013 “The 10 Songs I Wish I’d Written”. This award went to some awesome songwriters who wrote the best country songs of the year. “Songwriter of the Year” went to none other than Taylor Swift. There were a ton of talented and well-known songwriters in attendance, but Taylor was definitely the most famous.

Dinner was served, wine was drank, photos were taken and time ticked on as we anxiously awaited the highlight of our night. Finally, the time came and two hilarious and award-winning songwriters took the stage to honor Aunt Amy. The two men told stories of the famous Blue Bird and the owner that everyone knows and loves. They thanked her for her dedication to local songwriters. She not only supports their efforts, but has given them the perfect place to share their stories, practice their new songs, change their old songs and perform for a quiet and appreciative audience.

After the touching speech, Amy was invited on stage to give a speech of her own. Now, I may be a little biased, but her speech (and the speech about her) were by far the most interesting and entertaining speeches of the night. She started her speech by thanking the congress men and women for attending, but then quickly asking them to get back to work in Washington once they finish their dinner. She also told the story of how her Father supported her and encouraged her to open up a café in Nashville, but gave her one piece of advice: “Do not play live music.”

Everyone stood, cheered and hollered for Amy.  It could not have been a better night.

There were other awards and many songs performed throughout the night, but nothing seems worth writing about after Amy’s part.

Congratulations Aunt Amy, we love you!
