Good morning, Nashville. Do you see this? The beautiful redbud trees, clear and brilliant blue skies, and the sunshine? This was the scene on Saturday, but it will not be the scene today. Nay, today it will probably snow. And if we seem upset about this, it’s because we are. We’ve gone from 76 and sunny to cloudy with a chance of snow and tornados in the span of three days. Also, North Korea probably fired off a missile over the weekend and there was a giant earthquake in Italy last night. Off to a great start this week, right?
- At least he’s not from Nashville. This year’s ACM Awards were everything we hoped for and more after Toby Keith screamed at some Tennessean reporters in the press room about a story they ran a few days ago. Something about “(expletive) super-sized French fries” and Moby Teeth? Don’t ask us.
- Lord help us. File this one under “Things we never knew we needed until we–” Okay, no, we really don’t need this: Some guy wants to tarnish the landscape with a giant statue of Elvis right across the street from our beautiful new Schermerhorn Symphony Center. Because Elvis is from Nashville and everything.
- Bits & pieces. The Preds had a big win on Saturday against the Columbus Blue Jackets on Saturday, bumping them up into 8th place … Some folks in West Nashville woke up with a dead stranger in their house … Rep. Brenda Gilmore (D-Nashville) wants all Tennessee inmates tested for HIV … Metro is finally preparing to buy up the land for the new convention center, so goodbye Rocketown.
