Linda Davis at the Ryman Auditorium – Nashville – Photo 2007


I snapped this onstage at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville as Linda Davis received a much deserved award from her peers in the Music Industry for her many good works, activities and music. She’s one of the nicest and most talented people you could ever meet.

Another person to note in the background to the right in the grey suit is Cowboy Joe Babcock. He is a long thread in the Fabric of Nashville, leader of The Nashville Edition, long time cast member of Hee Haw, songwriter with credits including Elvis, arranged and sang vocals with his group on just about every hit record you could think of coming out of Nashville from the 60s through well into the 80s. Oh – and he was part of Marty Robbin’s band back in the 60s and can be heard on the hit “El Paso” as well as the others.

Someone needs to do a book on him.

Techincal Notes: I used a Canon D30 body with a special lens ring to use a 1970 Zukio 24mm lens with an OM mount. It defeats all the auto exposure features but I go full manual with SLRs anyway ;-)
