Somehow a sad and sentimental song can brighten even the gloomiest of days. Hearing the drop-dead gorgeous “Country Music Breaks My Heart” by Music City singer-songwriter Erinn Peet Lukes turned one of my dismal days right around.

I guess everything has a shelf life, including “11 Questions to a Nashville Musician.” Well, MCM’s come up with a way to give the members of this elite society a way to refresh their pages, answer a few new questions, and tell us what they have been up to. Our good friend Jason Erie gets […]

Molly Felder with Henry After accidently stumbling into this “Who Moved Away” subset of 11 Questions, I decided that making some intentional requests might be fun. What a great way to hear about the old Nashville and catch up on what some folks who left town are up to. Why did I wait so long […]
