Video of the Day: Nikki Lane on KCRW

The song has been kicking around in her live show recently, even though it has yet to appear in recorded form. Until now, that is. Yesterday, as she hit Los Angeles to ready for KCRW‘s Country in the City alongside Wynonna Judd, (tomorrow in Century City), Nikki Lane took to the airwaves for the first time with “700,000 Rednecks,” a song that references how many fans / sales a country artist might need to make it big. It’s certainly an aspirational number in the streaming era, but she has the talent to do it.

Behrnsie has a love for music that dare not speak its name. He attends many shows and can often be found counting out the beats for no discernible reason. He played alto saxophone in his middle school jazz band, where he was best known for infuriating his instructor when it was revealed that he played everything by ear, and could not in fact read music. He takes great pride that this is the same talent/affliction that got Tori Amos kicked out of the Peabody Academy. He does not live in his parents’ basement….except during the holidays.
