Willi Taft

Created by Mary Saums

A former session singer turned private investigator, Nashville's WILLI TAFT works the cozier (although still mean) streets of Music City, surrounded by the usual quirky but lovable family and friends. Hell, she even has a dog, Buddy, that does cute dog things.

The series' saving grace is some well applied local colour and that Willi herself is no genteel Southern belle wallflower -- nope, she's got a sharp eye and an even sharper tongue, with a ready opinion, as one review put it, "on everything from ugly Confederate war hero statues (sound familiar?) to classical radio stations that don't play enough music. "


  • "In the crowded world of detectives, Nashville studio singer Willi Taft is a unique and appealing character--how could you not like an ex-smoker whose dog hides packs of cigarettes and has to be bribed to sniff them out in an emergency? Seeing backstage Music Row through her eyes is great. I'm looking forward to her next outing."

-- Susan Dunlap

  • "I give (Buddy) five woofs for lovableness."

-- Mary Welk (Amazon review)
