Bright & Early: Big World Out There Edition

Good morning, Nashville. We’re so glad it’s Friday. Looks like today might be a good day for Deputy Mayor Greg Hinote, too, since there’s a good chance he could be released from the hospital. Earlier this week, he busted up his hip after hitting a patch of wet leaves while riding his bicycle. Nashvillest wishes him a speedy recovery.

  • Tales from the Vince Gill room. Belmont announced the names of the hosts for the Town Hall Presidential Debate in October, and out of all of the country music artists in this town, Vince Gill and Amy Grant are the only two who made it onto the list, probably because they’re two of the school’s biggest donors. Nashvillest would like to point out that we too have given a great deal of our money to Belmont and want to know why we didn’t make the cut.
  • Hope in tragedy. Since the May 21st accident that killed Steven Curtis Chapman’s adopted daughter Marie Sue, nearly $275K has been donated to the Chapman family’s adoption organization Shaohannah’s Hope. The organization provides financial assistance to families that are in the process of adoption.
  • Bits & Pieces. Taylor Swift will be signing autographs until she drops at next weekend’s CMA Music Fest … Our favorite former Titans QB says he’s enjoying retirement … A rash of arson fires spread across southern Tennessee … Judge says that school-based group Praying Parents violated the separation of church and state.
