Buddy Miller Brings Lee Ann Womack, Patty Griffin to Country Music Hall of Fame Concert

Buddy Miller spotlighted special guests Lee Ann Womack and singer-songwriters Patty Griffin and Darrell Scott during his sold-out performance at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in Nashville on Tuesday night (Aug. 17). The concert was Miller’s second performance as the museum’s current artist-in-residence, allowing him to assemble a night of music of his own choosing. A much-admired guitarist, Miller accompanied Womack and Griffin on a tender cover of Lefty Frizzell’s “Mom and Dad’s Waltz.” In addition, Womack performed “Does My Ring Burn Your Finger” and “Don’t Tell Me,” which Miller wrote, as well as a cover of Marty Robbins’ yearning “Return to Me.” Griffin mostly relied on material from her new album, Downtown Church, which Miller produced, and they sang together on “Chalk.” Earlier in the evening, Scott performed a pair of his own songs, then joined Miller and Griffin for a poignant rendition of Porter Wagoner’s “A Satisfied Mind.” Lasting almost two hours, the show was rounded out by several songs Miller performed with the McCrary Sisters, a soulful duo that he is currently producing. Miller’s third and final installment of his artist-in-residence series will take place Tuesday (Aug. 24).
