Gene Belt

Gene Belt

Clarksville, TN – This is the true story about a man who loved his music, and wasn’t going to let anything stop him from playing it.  Even after a life-changing accident that could have killed him and cost  him the fingers of his left hand.

This is the story of a simple country preacher who taught himself to play the guitar so he could play in church.

The story of a man who, through tragedy,  would never play his beloved guitar again, but looked at the piano, and said, “I can do this.”

With only six fingers.

Eighth Clarksville Writers’ Conference 2012: Renaissance Woman Alice Randall Describes Ada’s Rules


Clarksville Writer's ConferenceClarksville, TN – Harvard-educated Alice Randall is as close to being a Renaissance woman as you’re going to meet on the streets of Nashville. Writer-in-residence for Vanderbilt University, she is the author of The Wind Done Gone, Pushkin and the Queen of Spades, Rebel Yell and her latest book, Ada’s Rules. The first African-American woman to write a number one country song, she also wrote a video of the year, worked on multiple Johnny Cash videos, and produced a pilot for a prime time drama on CBS (featuring ex-wives of country stars).

Ada’s Rules hits head on what Alice Randall feels is the dominant civil rights issue of the first quarter of the 21st century—health disparity, specifically the issue of being overweight that leads to diabetes in one in four African-American women over 55. Diabetes leads to many women suffering amputation and/or kidney failure. Alice Randall is on a crusade to help women recognize this problem and find ways to overcome it.
