To Nashville and back with Lifestyle Editor Edwina Hagon

All roads lead to Tennessee. RUSSH Magazine’s New York-based Lifestyle Editor, Edwina Hagon (also a drummer), along with bandmates Cate Von Csoke (singer-songwriter / guitar) and Mike Gunn (lead guitar), drove over 800 miles from NY to Nashville to play a record release show for Cate’s debut single, Coyote Cry, at 70s-inspired roadhouse Dee’s Country Cocktail Lounge. Here she sends us postcards from the road.

“We stayed at The Dive Motel, scoured vintage stores, pressed a record at Jack White’s Third Man Records, sang karaoke at Fran’s (the best karaoke/dive bar I’ve ever been to, wish we took photos there), made friends with the locals (check out Okey Dokey band), and embraced the Nashville heat with NY winter looming.”

“Nilsson Schmilsson. Jordan bringing the good vibes.”

“Pre-show, waiting on our disco fries.”

“The Dive Bar & Lounge, serving hot food, cold drinks and good times.”

“Poolside jiving.”

“Still summer in Nashville.”

“Nashville was as expected …”

“High Class Hillbilly – the kind of vintage store that makes you weak at the knees.”

“Mike’s new look.”

“Save my soul.”

“Tacos and Topo Chico … Redheaded Stranger, I think I love you.”

“Recorded two songs in a 1947 Voice-o-Graph machine at Jack White’s Third Man Records.”

“Somewhere on Route 81. See you soon Tennessee.”

“Unicorns, Elvis, disco balls – retro-themed rooms at The Dive Motel.”
