CMT Blog: Sonia Leigh Stays on the Ball During a Rowdy Nashville Concert

CMT Southern Ground Live Presented by Landshark welcomed Sonia Leigh, the unapologetic rocker chick of modern day country music, to Nashville on June 26. Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville played host to the high-energy songstress as well as a crowd filled with anticipation and armed with beach balls. It wasn't long before Leigh belted out some raspy lyrics and the hammering of drums joined in. The crowd couldn't resist the energy, relentlessly spiking beach balls and joyously singing along. But the flurry of flying balls was no problem for Leigh and her band as they turned the frenzy into a game of musical kickball with swift kicks and swats from their guitar heads. Leigh continued to nod her head in rhythm with the escalating energy of the music, and flipping the hair out of her eyes, lifted her hand in the air with a guitar pick tightly wedged between her fingers. The crowd followed, magnetically allowing their hands float above their heads. Leigh and her band might be new to the scene, but they certainly know how to have fun, let loose and rock out.
