“You can call Great Peacock a folk band… but don’t expect them to make music for campfires or square dances. Raised in the Deep South and headquartered in Nashville, they’re a group of red-blooded country boys who aren’t afraid of the big city. Case in point: Making Ghosts — the duo’s harmony-heavy, guitar-driven debut album — whose 11 songs find the middle ground between rootsy, down-home Americana and super-sized arena pop/rock.”
Great Peacock is an Americana-pop band from Nashville, TN. In the midst of the band’s first extensive national tour to promote their fantastic debut full-length entitled “Making Ghosts” which was released in the Spring via This Is American Music, they stop in Pittsburgh tonight (8/11) at the atmospheric Pittsburgh Winery. I want to thank Andrew Nelson (Guitar/Lead Vocals) for taking the time to participate in this edition of First/Last.
The first album you ever bought?
Lynyrd Skynyrd “Gold and Platinum”.

I’ve been subscribing to Spotify for so long now that I can’t remember. If I had to guess I’d say The National’s “High Violet”.

Kind of an impossible question to answer! I think it’s hard to argue with “The Dark Side of the Moon”.
Least favorite/most disappointing album?
No answer on that one.

The Allman Brothers, Lakewood Amphitheater, Atlanta GA, 1998.
First Aid Kit, Ryman Auditorium, Nashville TN, not long ago.

Can’t answer that.
Any thoughts,experiences about Pittsburgh?
I’ve never been to Pittsburgh before, so I’m super excited to be playing there and getting to see the city for the first time!
Thanks, Andrew. Really love this album, man. Can’t wait to see you tonight.
