Dodging the Roadkill: Who Do They Think We Are?

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – Just the other day there was an incident in nearby Nashville that not only was reckless and dangerous, but laws were broken. 

An unknown group of individuals on dirt bikes and ATVs were seen riding around the Music City, including Downtown Nashville, popping wheelies, running red lights and just causing havoc in one of the busiest places in town.

One police officer was injured trying to stop one of them and officials are trying to identify them.

In a later report, one of the news outlets managed to get an interview with a young lady in the group, (who was not identified), and she said that their group was a “positive” rally to show young people that there was more to life than just “drugs and guns.”

Jason Minton Molds a Strong Friday the 13th Show in Franklin Tennessee

 

Kimbros Pickin' ParlorFranklin, TN – What’s a native Tennessean who spent his life surrounded by the country music industry but grew up listening to the power pop pleasantries and British sensations like Squeeze and Crowded House to do? If you’re Jason Minton you form a rock band built on a foundation of faith and strong acoustic sensibilities.

In a live setting he looks the part of a rugged country boy. When he sings you’re transported back to the new wave revolution of the 80’s. That’s what we discovered when we finally caught the Jason Minton Band in concert in Franklin, Tennessee on January 13th, 2017 at Kimbros Pickin’ Parlor on South Margin Street.

Singer/songwriter Jason Minton shows a lot of promise in Franklin.
