How many country singers do you know can strum a guitar or a banjo and also put on the tap shoes and shed like a bawse?
Carrie Underwood can’t say that.
Brad Paisley can’t say that.
Neither can Martina McBride... or Toby Keith.
Can you imagine Toby Keith shuffle-hop-stepping across the stage?
To my recollection, there is only one who is capable of doing all of that... and so much more.
Her name is Lockwood Barr (@musicbylockwood).
The California-born phenom is an up-and-coming country artist here in Nashville, and she there isn’t a single thing she can’t do! She sings, she dances, she plucks, she strums, and she entertains!
I met Lockwood last year when the Nashville Tap Experiment (@nashvilletapexperiment)
tap company hosted Sarah Reich’s (@sourtaps)
master class! I got a chance to know her and take class with her; she spoke glowingly of her tap dance adventures in New York City, especially taking class with the one and only Michelle Dorrance (@mashdeez)!
The next night, Lockwood was in attendance as Sarah tore up the stage with Postmodern Jukebox (@pmjofficial)!
Two months later, I ran into her at the Dorrance Dance (@dorrancedance)
show in Nashville, and what a time we had! I remember that I wanted to take tons and tons of pictures, but my phone’s battery was dead, so I had to hijack her phone to take the pictures for me!
Sorry about that, Lockwood! Thanks for your help! 🙃😂
Lockwood has already released an album, titled ‘Signs Along the Road,’ and she is coming out with another album soon, titled ‘The 25th Hour’! I would recommend listening to them, and listening to Lockwood’s dulcet voice! Trust me... future CMA Music Award or Grammy Award winner right here. 😁
She is an absolute joy to know! She’s kind, approachable, and so funny! She makes people laugh and is just so fun to be around! I really can’t wait for the day I get to tap with you again soon!
Happy birthday, Lockwood! I hope you have a great day!
