Happy Hour: These Boots Edition

  • First and foremost, the most important news of the day: Jessica Simpson’s new country single is now up on the internet for your listening pleasure. The consensus here at Nashvillest is that it sounds exactly like some other song we can’t think of, but maybe you can help us figure it out. [WTVF]
  • Metro police officers will be getting their Tasers back soon. The department heavily scaled back Taser use when a 21-year old Nashville man died last September after being Tasered 12 times. [City Paper]
  • Those of you in LaVergne may want to watch how much tap water you drink since city officials recently sent out a notice warning residents about excessive rates of Trihalomethanes. They say it’s still safe to drink, but we’d recommend opting for the bottled variety until they get it cleared up. [WSMV]
  • Two kids from Middle Tennessee were eliminated from the first round of the Scripps National Spelling Bee because they didn’t score high enough on the written portion. Nashvillest applauds them, though, because we probably couldn’t spell “polypharmacy” at age 10. [Tennessean]
