The Wreckers Rock New York Before Breaking Up
The Wreckers may be breaking up, but they’ve immortalized their electric live show in a new CD and DVD, ‘ Way Back Home: Live From New York City.’
Recorded in the famed Bowery Ballroom, the country duo — Michelle Branch and Jessica Harp — perform their huge hits, ‘Leave the Pieces,’ ‘My, Oh My’ and more from their breakthrough album, ‘Stand Still, Look Pretty.’ They also surprise the crowd with three new songs: ‘Love Me Like That,’ ‘Damn That Radio’ and ‘Different Truck, Same Loser.’ You can watch several of the live performances on AOL Music right here.
This particular show in New York was especially significant for Harp, as she had just gotten engaged to their band’s fiddle player, Jason Mawory, the night before. During the performance, Branch announces her partner’s happy news to the audience, and Harp flashes her new ring.
The Wreckers are currently on tour with Keith Urban. After they park the tour bus, both Branch and Harp will start on solo projects. But Branch won’t be going back to her pop roots. She’s found a home in Nashville and plans on keeping it country.
