New to Nashville in 2019 was Savannah Nider, a small-town girl with a big beautiful voice. If you don’t believe me, give a listen to her latest single “We are Us.” Her words in this song are also a ray of hope that we all sure could use right now.
Savannah is keeping in touch with her fans and friends though Facebook Live, so please be sure to check her page for updates. We hope to see her playing around town again when things return to normal. But in the meantime, like she sings, “We are us, we will pray, we still love every single day.”
Thanks, Savannah, for visiting 11 Questions.
