My Two Cents: Nashville Predators Score Big

 

My Two-Cents with Hank BonecutterNashville, TN – The Nashville Predators returned home needing to win game 3 of the Stanley Cup Finals, and win they did. The 5-1 beat down of the Penguins gets the Predators back into this contest headed to game 4. 

Once the NBC networks got over their infatuation with the CATFISH, it was time to focus on the task at hand.

Rumors that Pekke Rinne was not going to start game three in goal circulated throughout the afternoon and it was minutes before puck drop when we learned that he indeed WOULD be in goal.

Clarksville’s Riverfest announces Brandy Clark as headliner for 2016 Festival

 

Clarksville's Riverfest CelebrationClarksville, TN – Riverfest, presented by the City of Clarksville and Miller Lite, is pleased to announce Brandy Clark will be the featured headliner at the 2016 Festival. Brandy Clark will take the main stage as the headlining event on Saturday, September 10th, 2016 at 9:00pm. The concert is free and open to the public.

For Brandy Clark, the dream she harbored in her small hometown of Morton, Washington, was to be a country singer. Sure, once she moved to Nashville, she had successful cuts as a songwriter [The Band Perry’s “Better Dig Two,” Miranda Lambert’s “Mama’s Broken Heart,” and Kacey Musgraves’ “Follow Your Arrow”], but being an artist in her own right was a dream she had stopped dreaming until two years ago when her first album, the stunning 12 Stories, debuted.

Salon 615: A Downtown Nashville Christmas

 

Sandee Gertz - Author/Writer Nashville, TN – I said I’d be hip. I promised writing about culture and clubs; poetry and songwriters, and maybe even turn you on to the latest dive bar I’ve visited or a hidden-away café full of charm.  But then while I wasn’t looking, lights and wreaths went up on Church Street, 2nd Avenue took on an even more twinkly golden glow, and Printers Alley became bejeweled with lights and blown-up Santas.

Since we last met here, we were catapulted headlong into the Christmas season. And we all know Christmas isn’t hip. «Read the rest of this article»
