Vol. 2, Issue 19







Greetings everyone....


Wow... what a week.  Barbara Mandrell held a press conference; Brad Paisley, Rascal Flatts and Rodney Atkins celebrated reaching #1; Craig Wiseman and Friends held their annual benefit for Second Harvest at The Ryman; Harry Chapman retires from Talk of the Town; and Jon Bon Jovi was in town and hitting the clubs in Music City.  Music News Nashville was there for it all, and captured it in photographs, articles and more.  Check out the links below for all the information.  We also have a link to streaming video of interviews from the red carpet premiere of Broken Bridges, provided by Dish Magazine.  Log on and check it out...


As you know, we recently changed mail servers and, in doing so, had some names get mixed in with our subscription lists of people who were not our subscribers.  We've been diligently working the last six weeks to clear those names out of our lists and, for the most part, we think we've succeeded.  However, if yours is one of those e-mail addresses and you want to be removed from the mailing list, please CLICK HERE.


This next week is a busy one... the International Bluegrass Music Association runs all week at the Nashville Convention Center, with the IBMA awards Thursday night at the Grand Ole Opry.  The World's Biggest #1 Party at NSAI is tomorrow (Monday).  Also, mark your calendars for the release party for Fertitta and McClintock's new CD, AFTER ALL THIS TIME, produced by Fred Mollin, Steven McClintock and David Fertitta. The date is September 29th at 7pm til 9pm at LYRIX with special guest Jim Quealy and Gunner Nelson. The 27 years in the making CD is on 37 Records and will be for sale that night!  Everyone is invited.


We HIGHLY recommend you visit MNN every day to catch the LATEST NEWS.  The industry news changes daily, including notices of events and more.  Log on every day and visit the LATEST NEWS section where stories are updated from noon to 5:00pm EVERY DAY.
