Three Girls and their Buddy are coming to the Greek Theatre on Wednesday, June 24, and LA MetBlogs has a pair of tickets for you.

The three girls are Emmylou Harris, Patty Griffin, and Shawn Colvin and their buddy is Buddy Miller.

I am very excited to see the legendary Emmylou Harris, and Griffin and Colvin are no songwriting slouches, either. The one I’m most looking forward to, though, is Buddy Miller.

Although Miller has been writing and recording with the biggest names in Nashville for years, I never heard of him until late-2007 when I saw the video below on Don Was’ “My Damn Channel” podcast. The song had been written the night before the session by Buddy’s wife, Julie Miller. At the time it was called “So New, There’s Still No Title.” It has since been renamed “Chalk,” and appears on Buddy & Julie Miller’s most recent album, “Written In Chalk.”

Click through to see the captivating video, and win your tickets to see Three Girls and their Buddy live at the Greek.

The song is so simple, yet so moving. So beautifully sad, and sadly beautiful. When Buddy sings it, his voice touches the deepest parts of your heart. I became an instant fan and listened to it again and again, before seeking out the rest of his catalog, too.

  1. Ive been a buddy miller fan since I first heard of him at the Americana music awards in Nashville 4 years ago. I realized that hes played on so many albums by so many great musicians and started to research some more of his stuff. My favorite album of his is called Universal United House of Prayer and it features his sister, emmylou and whole bunch of other great musicians. His 9 minute version of Dylans god on our side is amazing. Check it out

  2. Good tip, Skip. Thanks! I haven’t heard Buddy’s version of the Dylan tune, but I’ll be looking for it now.

  3. I’m a huge fan of female singer/songwriters, especially Shawn Colvin from this list. I’d love to go to the show!

  4. I would say Shawn and Patty Griffin are my favorite, and as to favorite song…any of them. I’ve seem Patty before and she has a great stage presence and tells great storied in between shows. Would love to see the show! Pick me :)
