>I’ve been looking forward to today for a long time for two reasons.
The first is the final stop of the Rick and Bubba book-tour will take place in Nashville this evening starting at 5:30 p.m. The radio personalities (and candidates for the highest office in the land) will be signing copies of their latest book Rick and Bubba For President this evening at the Barnes & Nobel in Cool Springs. Of course, yours truly will be there, book in hand.
The second thing is that tonight is the kick-off of the summer bluegrass series at the Ryman. I enjoyed all of last year’s shows (well, just about all of last year’s shows. There was one group last year that I didn’t much care for) and am really looking forward to this year’s acts. Tonight, we kick things off with Earl Scruggs and in the coming weeks, we’ll be treated to Rhonda Vincent and the Rage, the Grascals and (the one I am most eager to hear) Cherryholmes.
