Songwriter, Author, Emerging Youtube Personality, and Nashville resident, David Olney
Dozens of travelers leave Interstate 40 at Exit 196 everyday, some to visit friends and family, others for fuel, refreshment or lodging. They all have a story to tell and we are here to share a tale or two that we heard at Exit 196.
Last week we were informed that a new album by songwriter David Olney, will soon be available. The title of his new album, “Dutchman’s Curve,” acknowledges a set of West Nashville railroad tracks where, more than ninety years ago, the deadliest train wreck in American passenger train history occurred. At Exit 196 we have spent countless hours sifting through the facts and folklore surrounding that 1918 head on collision and we were interested and pleased to hear that Mr. Olney chose to name his latest album after the tragedy’s unfortunate site.“There are, maybe, 20 interesting people in the world,” says legendary Folk-performer songwriter, published author & rising YouTube star David Olney, and they all seem to exist somewhere within his music. On his new album, “Dutchman’s Curve,” David continues to cultivate his own multi-dimensional character studies with unparalleled perspective. That perspective finds David Olney writing songs and prose about characters who encounter interesting people and experience unusual events. Many of the songs on “Dutchman’s Curve,” including “Train Wreck” were inspired by history and reality.
On Wednesday , April 7, Kosher Taco will present a free show and preview of David Olney’s new album “Dutchman’s Curve. The show starts at 2:00 PM and will be held at Manuel’s located at 1922 Broadway. The public is invited to attend. We plan to be there and we hope you will join us there also!
