Memphis’s Sid Selvidge and Nashville’s Amy Speace, both acclaimed acoustic singer-songwriters, teamed up in 2010 to record the CD, I Should Be Blue, which is receiving rave reviews. “Amy Speace is the perfect torchbearer for the unconscious cool of true Americana” (Houston Press). “Sid Selvidge is a national treasure, an irreplaceable resource––a southern patrician who sings the rootest American music like a natural man....”(Jerry Wexler).
