World Cafe Nashville: Nora Jane Struthers And Korby Lenker

When the two songwriters sat down to pen their new one, "Let's Just Have Supper," they found themselves in the spirit of invitation rather than agitation.
This tense political moment has already inspired plenty of topical songs - some broad enough to support a rather elastic message, others more bold-faced and barbed. But when Nashville singer-songwriters Nora Jane Struthers and Korby Lenker sat down in early February for their first-ever co-writing session, they found themselves less in the mood to agitate than to extend an invitation of sorts. Their delightful song "Let's Just Have Supper" playfully envisions what it could look like if people with polar-opposite perspectives were to gather around the table and share the elemental experience of passing the cornbread, chicken and beans, a down-home image if ever there was one.
