Focusing on classical music grew old, though -- there weren't nearly enough guitar solos, for starters, and all the conductors seemed to think Sebastian Bach was Johann's younger brother -- so Leahey ditched the Big Apple and moved to Michigan, where he spent four years working as a music journalist and diving back into songwriting. Now a full-time Nashville resident, he writes, records, and tours with Andrew Leahey & the Homestead, a group of Virginia natives and Nashville residents. Forget Carnegie Hall. This is music for country lanes and city highways, for pop fans and roots rockers, for the heart as well as the heartland.
