Charity Event: October 24, 2016: Musician's Corner Paul Simon Tribute Concert, Nashville, TN

Still Crazy After All These Years:
Paul Simon, a 75th Birthday Tribute Concert
October 24, 2016

City Winery
Nashville, TN
Doors 6 PM CDT
Show 8 PM CDT

Preview:Singer-songwriter Paul Simon is turning 75 this month, and to honor him and raise funds for Musician's Corner, several Nashville artists (including Kris) are holding this tribute concert. While I was wondering if Kris would go with Mrs. Robinson (which he's covered before) or with his own song Young Love, or as I call it (and he called it for 2 1/2 years, "Paul Simon" because it seemed like a Paul Simon-type song), one of the other participants spilled the beans and revealed Kris will perform Still Crazy After All These Years (hattip @tmg84). I'm more of a 70s Paul Simon girl, so I'm pleased, and Paul Simon is a big influence for Kris so I'm sure he will do it justice.

Updated after the show: You really can't go too wrong with Paul Simon and I heard nothing but great stuff on all the IG videos the list posted. Our girl Ameeliu has posted a full video of Kris covering Still Crazy After All These Years (embedded below).
