David Olney with Sergio Webb

David Olney, a true genius of American song. Recorded at the Jammin at Hippie Jack’s Americana Music Festival in Overton County, TN.
Over an impressive professional career spanning four decades, David Olney has built a reputation not as a kind-hearted troubadour, but rather as a performing songwriter with a sharp literary mind that often cuts to the bone of the human condition. According to late Olney friend and fan Townes Van Zandt, "Anytime anyone asks me who my favorite music writers are, I say Mozart, Lightnin' Hopkins, Bob Dylan and Dave Olney. Dave Olney is one of the best songwriters I've ever heard — and that's true. I mean that from my heart." On this performance David teams with guitar virtuoso Sergio Webb. Experience a Nashville legend at his peak. David Olney packs the house in Nashville, and if you look around there are always big names watching.
