#LetTheGirlsPlay: Song Suffragettes Cover Colbie Caillat’s ‘Bubbly’
The all-female group features a rotating roster of some of the most promising young singer-songwriters in Music City. They perform in an ever-changing lineup of five every Monday night at the Listening Room in Nashville, where they gather to share new songs, swap stories, support each other and celebrate the music.
They close out every gig with a cover, and this past Monday (Aug. 3) they rounded things out with a somewhat countrified version of Caillat's signature song, re-arranged with rhythmic strumming in place of the delicate fingerpicking from her original recording. Kalie Shorr kicks things off on acoustic guitar, with Mignon Grabois drawing a big laugh when she says, "Will you count me in?" as Caillat did on the record.
Shorr takes the first verse, and Grabois jumps in to sing lead on the first chorus, with Alys Ffion, Kat Higgins and Krysta Nick joining in for some beautiful harmonies. The singers trade back and forth between lead and harmony vocals throughout the rest of the track, leading the audience in a singalong on the final refrain to close out another special night on stage.
Song Suffragettes formed to help young women overcome the odds that are stacked against them in the music business in Nashville, and Taste of Country is a proud supporter of the #LetTheGirlsPlay movement.
