Lindsay Lou and The Flatbellys

Review: Lindsay Lou and The Flatbellys – February 2017

“I wrote this song sitting on my front porch in Nashville,” said Lindsay. “It was one of those days when the air is so hot and heavy you feel like you could cut it with a knife – do you get days like that?” As if in answer, at that moment one of the 60mph…
