Nashville Arts Magazine recently featured an article by Keb’ Mo’s wife Robbie Brooks Moore about their recent move from LA to Nashville. It just so happens that their move occurred just a few short days before the historic flooding happened here in May. It’s interesting to read about their perspective of Nashville after moving from LA:
“You can’t even have an attitude in this town. They’ll laugh at you,” he says to me one night as we clear up the dinner dishes during one of my “secret” interviews. We laugh about the contrast with the Los Angeles scene where Kevin is better known as “Keb’ who?” That’s OK. He actually likes it that way, but he also loves the down-to-earth attitudes and camaraderie of the Nashville community. “A quality that I’ve really noticed in the people I admire the most,” he says, “is their constant use of the question ‘what can I do for you?’ I notice a whole lot of that here, and I try to do the same.” That helpful attitude is not just lip service. We have experienced it firsthand—everything from our neighbors Kim and John feeding us the most amazing brownies to Vince Gill giving us a ride on his tour bus from Chicago and then a personal shuttle and bag service to our front door. My favorite has been looking out the front window and seeing Kevin’s new workout partner, Lee Roy Parnell, good-naturedly watering our flowers for us after helping him with the mulching. Now that’s service.
