I saw Nickel Creek in concert and the opening act was The Secret Sisters. When you’re not the headliner, it’s gotta be a tough gig. But these girls did it right: they didn’t wait for the energy of the crowd to dictate whether they were having a good time. Instead, the energy they brought to the stage automatically made the crowd rise up to match them. It was heartwarming to see musicians who are grateful about the success they’re having. So, even though I can listen to The Secret Sisters through my Rhapsody subscription, I still chose to support them by buying a CD.
