Clarksville, TN – “The South is a strange place, one that can’t be fit inside a movie, a place that dares you to simplify it, like a prime number, like a bible story … like my father.”
Born in Memphis, TN and raised in Mississippi, Harrison Scott Key knows a thing or two about life in the South – and the unique people that call it home.
Much like the South, Key’s father was also one-of-a-kind. The author, comedian and university professor’s new book, titled “The World’s Largest Man: A Memoir” tells the story of a bookish boy, sharing a house with a father who often seemed at odds with the society his son embraced.

Recital presented APSU Department of Music, Center of Excellence for the Creative Arts
Clarksville, TN – The Austin Peay State University Department of Music and the Center of Excellence for the Creative Arts will present a guest artist recital by soprano Kate Rawls and pianist Mei-En Chou on Thursday, September 17th at 7:30pm in the George and Sharon Mabry Concert Hall on the University campus.
The varied program will feature beautiful, melodic songs and arias by J.S. Bach, Amy Beach, Gabriel Fauré and contemporary American composer, Ben Moore, as well as two exciting and atmospheric solo piano works by Ravel and Bolcom.
Actually, that’s not an accurate assessment of the situation. The Braves bullpen took a three-run lead into the bottom of the seventh on Wednesday night in Tampa and turned it into a three-run deficit in about four seconds. Matt Marksberry is looking, well, like a guy who was in A-ball to start the season—no shame on him either, that’s just what the situation calls for now.
It’s not fair to him that he has to play above his ski’s right now, but there’s just not much left in the cupboard. No Jason Grilli. No Jim Johnson. No Luis Avilan. If Arodys Vizcaino and Andrew McKirahan are the class of your bullpen, that doesn’t speak volumes so much as shout them, Lewis Black-style, from a mountaintop of crap, inexperience and ineptitude.
