• Video: Watch Rhett Miller perform for Guest List.
* * *
When the Old 97's stopped in Omaha recently, we sat down with frontman Rhett Miller. The singer brought his guitar into Slowdown's backstage area and sang two songs for Guest List: "Out of Love" and "Picture This."
Both tunes come from his latest solo album, "The Dreamer," which was released this year. They also tell opposite stories.
"'Picture This' ... is all about getting married and having kids. It's not a song that a 22-year-old, single, drunk guy could write," he told us. "'Out of Love' is the opposite end of the spectrum. It's about a relationship going all wrong."
