Other originals that Shorr played during the main portion of the show included "Throwin' Shade", "God Sees Everything" and "I Need You". "God Sees Everything" is the only song I've heard her perform live before in full, and it was nice to hear it again. She told the story of how the song came about, which added to the personal element of the show. Apparently, she and Morgan Dawson wrote the song at 12 pm one night about Dawson's ex who cheated on her. Hearing the background and inspiration of a song makes it feel so much more raw and real.
My favorite cover she did during the main show was "Waterfalls" by TLC. When she began to rap, I was so taken by surprise I burst out laughing. But she was actually pretty good at it! Maybe she should do a duet with Sarah Ross! After she finished the song, she talked about recording it in the studio and doing a high quality video of it, and I agree! She should add some fiddle to the track, which would make it more her own than it already is. Because honestly, it does sounds like her own song.
However good the main part of the show was, the encore was even better. She debuted a song she had written only a few days before with Maddie Larkin to kick it off, called "Time of Night." The first lyric, "you've got one hand on the wheel, but no one to hold the other. You've got a king sized bed to fill but no one to steal the covers" hit me as one of the best lyrics I've heard in a while. Ironically, after the performance, Shorr said that was her favorite line. The best part of the performance was when Shorr stopped playing guitar at the end of the second verse and announced, "you're just bored." I laughed out loud at that. I would love to hear how Shorr and her team produce this track, because it could be a hit.
"Roses Are Red" is the first ballad I've ever heard by Shorr. It was beautiful. She should definitely play more slow songs, because she does them so well. The line "it's like getting tired of your favorite song" really stuck with me.
Shorr ended the show with a "speed round" as she called it. She played a few originals and a bunch if covers. All of the people watching could type what song they wanted to hear into the comment box and she would spew off the chorus or part of a verse. In about 7 or 8 minutes she managed to play "Until I Open My Eyes, "Don't Speak" (No Doubt), I Hate Austin, Young and Restless, Call Your Girlfriend (Robyn), Maybe Possibly (Megan & LIz), Smoke and Mirrors, Little Red Wagon (Miranda Lambert), and most likely others that I forgot. It was incredible, the way she knew all the chords and lyrics to all of these songs. The funniest part of the entire show was when she was playing "Red Wagon" and singing, "you can't step to this backyard swagger" when the Stageit logo appeared on the screen and she was cut off because she had played too long. I sat there confused for about a minute.
The one problem with this show was the sound quality. For me it was mostly pretty good, but a few words were garbled and I know some other people had more audio problems than I did. But that can easily be fixed.
With this show, it was easy to see Shorr's dreams of a live stadium or arena show. Shorr was in this tiny little room with an acoustic guitar, but the way that she took on the show, it was like she was imagining how she would do a real live show, like one that Taylor Swift or Miranda Lambert put on. Seeing this helps put in perspective how far I'm sure Shorr will go.
