After Tennessee we drove into North Carolina and stayed in Asheville — a vibrant, hispter, farm-to-table, organic, liberal and beautiful city surrounded by gorgeous nature I fell in love with. If I ever have a chance (and this is me calling out to the universe) I would move there in a heartbeat. We heard about the “Orange Peel”, a famous music venue that has hosted amazing artists and was named one of the top 5 music venues in America.
As luck would have it, the musician playing on the only night we could go was Kiefer Sutherland who, turns out, is now a musician playing country music and kicked off his first tour a week before. He was so humble and thankful and vulnerable that I almost don’t mind that his music, in my opinion, was not that memorable. It’s very brave to come out after years of speaking other people’s scripted texts and sing his own. I will say that he owned the stage like a master and his crazy strong presence is undeniable. Plus, he wore a cowboy hat.
