In this “Live at the Hall” episode, Jenee Fleenor—a two-time Country Music Association Award-winning instrumentalist of the year, and the first woman to ever win that prize from the CMA—performs live and talks about her journey from a precocious child in Springdale, Arkansas, to becoming one of Nashville’s A-list musicians.
Fleenor’s work on fiddle, guitar, and mandolin has contributed to recordings and stage turns from Blake Shelton, Martina McBride, Terri Clark, Larry Cordle, Steven Tyler of Aerosmith, and numerous others.
During her interview with the Museum’s Peter Cooper (filmed on June 21, 2021), Jenee Fleenor talks about learning the Nashville Number System of chord charts, about the differences in stage and studio work, about the murky divide between stage and studio musicians, about her love of Nashville’s Station Inn nightclub, and about being the only woman in rooms full of musical men.
Fleenor details her musical journey in her song “Good Ol’ Girls,” which the singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist performs here with Ben Isaacs on upright bass and Mike Rogers on acoustic guitar. The trio also renders a rollicking version of another Fleenor original, “Fiddle & Steel.”
