DADDY's Here

The ever-magnificent Will Kimbrough & Tommy Womack were in the studio this morning to promote their Tin Pan South show (Wednesday 4/1 at Mercy Lounge). They came, they talked, they played a couple of great tunes.

Tiger Who?

See Henrik Stenson. Henrik is a professional golfer.

Swing, Henrik, Swing.
Because he's Swedish, I guess, when his ball lands in the Florida mud at a PGA championship game, Henrik finds it more distasteful to get muddy trou than give sports photographers a package shot.

Strip, Henrik! Strip!

Just FYI, he's 3 under par at the time of this post.

Birdie, Henrik, Birdie!


18 of them. That beats Nadya Suleman. Happy Friday.

Great Woods

This morning, I tagged along on a very special, very private, Team Green outing to hike through the Hill Tract — a pristine old growth forest in southwest Davidson county. The tract recently became available to the Friends of Warner Parks, for purchase. So far, they've raised about 90% of the necessary funds and have an agreement in place to make the buy, with the intention of turning around and donating it to Metro. You can get details and make a donation, if you like, here.

Anyway, there were about 15 of us out in this very pristine area of town. A few of the trees were huge, largest I've ever seen. This big:

Hopefully they'll be able to hit their goal before closing; it would be a shame for Nashville hikers to lose this opportunity.

We had a great studio visit with Canadian artist Serena Ryder a couple of weeks ago, and I just saw the video footage is online:

Go here for pt 2.
