The award-winning, hard-touring guitar slinger and blues singer Ana Popovic is back on the road promoting her new album “Like it on Top,” which is focused on empowered, successful and inspiring female role models. THE ROW is pleased to welcome Popovic as she performs free concerts on Jan. 18 and 19 at The Brew Brothers inside the Eldorado Resort Casino.
“Like it on Top” opened at #2 on the iTunes most downloaded US blues albums chart and peaked at #2 on the Billboard top-selling blues albums chart. Recorded in Nashville and produced by four-time GRAMMY™ winner Keb’ Mo’, the blues-influenced album features guest appearances from Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Robben Ford and Keb’ Mo’.
A trending theme in today’s world is women overcoming obstacles and breaking through glass ceilings to reach the top. “Like it on Top” celebrates those that take initiative, develop, inspire and motivate. It also credits the men who are motivated and enlightened enough to support women in their best versions of themselves.
Popovic has been moving west all her life. She fell in love with American blues as a kid, starting back home in Belgrade, Serbia, then moved to the Netherlands to study at the conservatory of jazz and world music. She lived in Amsterdam for over ten years and then, in a single-minded pursuit of her art and career, she relocated to Memphis to record and work with Southern musicians.
Called “one helluva guitar player” by Bruce Springsteen and nominated for six Blues Music Awards, Popovic has appeared on the covers of “Vintage Guitar” and “Guitar Player” magazines. Her albums “Can you Stand the Heat” and “Unconditional” were “USA Today” Picks-of-the-Week and featured on the NPR Weekend Edition, who praised her “fiery technique on the Stratocaster.” Nearly all of her albums reached the top of the Billboard blues charts and she and her six-piece band have toured tirelessly, sharing stages with B.B. King, Buddy Guy, Jeff Beck, Joe Bonamassa and many others.
This is a free concert for guests 21 and older at The Brew Brothers. Doors will open at 9 p.m. with the concert starting around 10 p.m.
