Topic: Music City
Nashville, TN – Weather reports called for a ten percent chance of rain on Saturday, June 18th, 2016 in Nashville, Tennessee. Sure enough, just before the much anticipated Monster Jam was set to start at Nissan Stadium the sky opened up and squeezed out a torrent of rain for twenty solid minutes right up until the opening ceremonies at 7:00pm.
The inclement weather did nothing to dampen the spirits of the thousands of fans gathered for this historical event in Music City. It did, however, guarantee that this evening’s entertainment would be a marvelous muddy mess.
That question was answered on Tuesday, May 10th, 2016 as members of N.U.F.F. reconvened to Music City to the plant seeds on re-launching their important mission in the metro area and beyond.

Nashville, TN – For Rent: I saw the photo of the little cottage house kitchen flashing at me from the screen of my Ipad. It had a warmth I could feel from its vintage 1947 age, but was renovated smartly with granite counters and white painted cabinets.
There was a window above the sink that looked out to a yard (always a rule for every house I’ve ever lived in) with streams of light shining in, and it was there I could see the tree. Thick, old, and jutting up grandly, ignoring the busy road with cars gliding by frequently, and casting shade on the “tear-down-turned modern house” that was going up next door.
Nashville, TN – Did you ever have the dream where you discover there are other rooms in your house that you knew nothing about? This month marks my third anniversary in Nashville, and I feel a bit like I’ve been living in those “other rooms” for three full years. They are foreign and yet increasingly familiar the longer I stay in the south.
They say Nashville is a “five-year town,” but that’s for songwriters and artists looking to sign a deal. Many musicians mark each year in Music City as a reflective milestone, marking the highs and lows, wins and losses, in a tough, and often unforgiving town. To be honest, I never thought Nashville would even be a six-month town. You see, I never expected to actually live here.

“What an incredible setup, what an incredible beginning to All-Star Weekend,” gushed NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman at the opening ceremonies on Thursday, January 28th, 2016. “The planning that the city of Nashville with the Predators and the local organizing committee and Bridgestone have done is nothing short of phenomenal. People are going to be thrilled to be part of this weekend.”

The globally recognized basketball team will be on a world tour during the first half of 2016 dazzling fans with their unique style of athleticism, comedy and theater.

Nashville, TN – A tube of toothpaste. A New Testament mini-bible. A can of Old English Malt Liquor beer. That was all I found at the base of trees of the State Capitol lawn where a young man had been laying in the sun without a shirt on for two days in the Nashville heat.
A cardboard sign was propped up against his tennis shoes: “HUNGRY” was scrawled on it in capital letters—hastily it appeared—in fine point pen.
“You know when everything inside of you is weak…“So numb you don’t want to speak…”
