Nashville, TN (March 13, 2019) – Viral sensation and charismatic entertainer Karen Waldrup has experienced the benefits of the power of positive music countless times over her career and over the weekend in Dallas was no exception. Waldrup was scheduled to play at The Prophet Bar in the musically rich Deep Ellum neighborhood of Dallas, but due to unforeseen issues between the venue and the fire marshal, the show was abruptly cancelled. Waldrup honored the VIP and elite VIP tickets on her tour bus and after that, she went outside to find a line of hundreds of fans requesting the show to go on. Waldrup performed her 70-minute set on the street outside the venue with no mic, no bathroom and no bar.
“I’m not too proud to play any stage. Whether I’m finally getting to open for George Strait or walking out of the tour bus to play on the concrete of a closed down bar,” expresses an emotional Waldrup. “If people come to hear me, I pick up my guitar and I play. That’s what I do- no matter what.”
