This week, many of the country’s greatest chefs will come to Louisville for the Bourbon and Beyond festival. I’m beyond excited to see, taste and Instagram all of the dishes I can possibly try. But, if I’m honest with myself, I’m most excited about hearing Stevie Nicks on Sunday night. Nicks is a legend. Her voice is better than yours. Her style is a look only she can pull off. And she’s still in the game. Stevie Nicks is the type of artist that can slip out of your mind, but when you’re reminded of how much you love her, it’s the best kind of nostalgia. This Sunday, Stevie Nicks will be on the Louisville waterfront. Hopefully she’ll sing all of her hits, but I don’t care as long as I get to see her twirl in her ridiculous shawl. To get in the proper head space, here’s a little quiz to remind us of why Stevie Nicks is one of the most iconic women in rock music.
