Here are three reasons to see Heart at The Ryman: Crazy on You, Magic Man and Barracuda. Need another? Ann Wilson can still sing her ass off. Even Hearts biggest detractors must admit that the bands rendition of the venerable Love Hurts contains one of the greatest lead vocals ever recorded. For more than 35 years, the Wilson sisters have had the distinction of being Seattles original riot grrrls, wielding no-holds-barred rockers like those mentioned above to smash rock radios glass ceiling. On the other hand, the 80s monster ballads What About Love, These Dreams and Alone remain a low point even of the Decade of Starship. But well let that go. Well even forgive Nancy Wilson for marrying Almost Famous director Cameron Crowe.
