Greetings to all

DIXIE CHICKS!!!! Wow, what a show. It was a packed house at the Gaylord Entertainment Center Friday night and the Chicks kept the audience on their feet for most of their first show in Nashville since... well, since "the incident." I know some of you have problems with what Natalie said, and the fact that they've periodically rubbed salt in wounds. Heck, I received some "hate mail" for simply running a contest for free tickets to the show. But Friday night was about the music. And, whether their political stance is one you like or not, the music was fantastic. This IS Nashville, after all... MUSIC CITY. It's supposed to be all about the music. If you haven't caught their new show yet, you need to... it's a good one. A nice blend of the old and the new.
We'll have one more issue this year, then we'll be taking off until after the first of the year. We hope you all have great holiday plans and look forward to the new year.
