I recently stumbled upon an extremely impressive Nashville singer/songwriter by the name of Don Gallardo. I have not been terribly impressed with much coming out of Nashville lately but I have found that anyone persistent enough to muddle through the mountain of bad rock music being sold as country can find the occasional diamond in the rough – Don Gallardo is one of those rare gems… Don’s writing style harkens back to a time when Nashville was overflowing with great storytellers.

 

Don Gallardo’s newest offering entitled “When The Daylight Whispers Darling…” is an impressive effort. A collection of ten songs that have become a welcome addition to my day. From Time Pass By, a catchy tune about the inescapable reality of the passage of time, to the melodic story of life, according to Don, in Skin and Bones and closing with a haunting story of lost love in Wichita. I have truly enjoyed listening to this CD and I highly recommend it to fans of great songwriters. I will keep Don Gallardo on my radar and I hope to follow-up with reports on his future progress…

Don is great. He was my concert manager and performer for last year's Gram National Nashville at the 5 Spot in East Nashville, which is home base to him and a bunch of other young gems (as I was in Boston to handle two nights commemorating 45 years since Gram formed the ISB there). Couldn't have been in better hands. I agree with your assessment. Correct me if I'm wrong (Don), but I believe you just opened for John Prine and Emmylou in Alabama recently? Thanks for noticing him Chris; we'll all be hearing more.
