Maybe. Mega-talented musician. Touring & recording artist. Stunning beauty. Smart. (Belmont University) Nashville native. If this lady can do a skillet of bacon, biscuits, & gravy…she just might BE perfect.
(Oh shut up. No haters! This is my ideal, not yours.)
I had the pleasure of shooting Lauren Conklin Johnson when I first arrived in Music City. What a talented girl! She plays 432 instruments!!!
Ok…sometimes I tend to exaggerate to make a point. It was a test to see if you were paying attention. Truth is…if it’s got a string on it…she can play it. Including your heart-strings!
For those of you interested, here’s a bit of Nash Rockett philosophy. I’m not one to believe in co-occurrence, coincidence — coinkydink! When I walk every day I have Mr. You & Mrs. Tube piped into my earbuds.
Yesterday, a song came on, from my random playlist. I kid you not…it was so beautiful…my eyes started leaking! Serious!
Now…I’m not speaking of a sobbing-ugly cry…but, just a sweet gentle, wistful, tears-rollin’-down-your-cheeks-while-you’re-walkin’ kinda cry. A gentle weep, if you will.
Do NOT repeat this. If you tell anyone…I’ll deny it & call you crazy!
Three-quarters thru the song I had to know what this was & who this was!
Yep! You guessed it!
Lauren Conklin Johnson.
It wasn’t a coinkydink that she peeked into my life briefly…once again. This lady is magick! (yes…I actually spell it that way) And this lil visit reminded me…that I need to POST about her and share her with my audience…
…and I’ve posted the video of that song below. Watch thru til the end to see the breadth of her artistry.
