First of all, how cool is this bar? Just a little hole in the wall that barely holds more than five people… this how more bars should be. Small, intimate, personal, not a six-story circus like half the places down on Broadway.
Anyways, a few years back, Kellie Pickler was visiting Japan and when she popped into this little bar, and when the staff found out that she was a country music singer, they asked her to sing a little something. And they got WAY more than they bargained for.
Performing the Willie Nelson-written tune “Crazy,” recorded by Patsy Cline in 1961, Kellie brought the entire room (as small as it was) to a complete standstill. So much so that one of the bartenders was even moved to tears.
That’s the power of music on full display folks.
Whiskey Riff is the most entertaining country site…ever.
