      Sarah Lou was wonderful, but your site crashed after the first song and I tried everything to bring it back but nothing worked. The image and audio would come on for 2 seconds and then freeze again, no sound, just frozen image. I also couldn't get the chat feature to work. I was using safari on my computer, where I had signed up w you and paid, as it wouldn't work signing up on my iPad. I had no other windows open, I could read the chats coming in from everyone including the live tech help, and I refreshed the download many times. Finally gave up at 8:50. So disappointed!!!!

      I love Sarah Lou Richards, this is the second online show I've seen of hers and it's almost as good as seeing her in person. Thanks for having Sarah on this special Nashville Nights.

Sarah Lou Richards will tell you that she was born in Wisconsin. But the folk-Americana musician known as SLR was born in Nashville.

After studying music education at the University of Hartford’s The Hartt School and the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire—and with some vocal inspiration from Shania Twain—Richards shifted her focus from teaching to performing. A few setbacks, though: She didn’t own a guitar. She didn’t know how to write a song. And she didn’t listen to much outside of pop-country radio. But all of that changed upon moving to Music City in 2007. SLR quickly began studying, writing, and working the city’s open mic circuit with her first original song, “Space.”

That introspective track eventually made it onto Richards’ folksy five-song debut EP, Emerald City, which was released in September 2009. (Adding to Emerald City’s star power: SLR’s pals Florida Georgia Line opened for her at the release party.) After connecting with Henry Paul, lead singer of the multiplatinum country band BlackHawk, she’d found the producer for her first full-length album. With the 2010 release of the slicker, twangier, ten-track Ruby Red Shoes, two themes emerged: Richards’ Wizard of Oz fetish, of course, but also her strong work ethic. “I was struck with her commitment to her work,” Paul says. “Sarah Lou is in the music business for all the right reasons. She has an artistic agenda and is personally motivated.”
