Good morning, Nashville. We know winter in Nashville can get a little boring, so we’re glad that Tim McGraw and Gwenyth Paltrow have decided to spice it up a bit by filming a new movie here. We have no idea what this movie will be about and we can’t imagine what sort of convoluted plot could land the two of them on the same screen, but filming is slated for January and February and 80% of it will be happening right here in Nashville. And also, it should be noted that the producers chose us over Austin.
- Nashville’s got talent. A band of Healthways employees out of Franklin brought home the title of America’s #1 Corporate Rock Band after competing in an annual showdown at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame judged by Motley Crue’s Tommy Lee.
- Kidnapping case leak. The TBI is investigating who might have leaked confidential information about the newborn kidnapping case earlier this week, specifically information on the investigation of the family’s alleged attempts to sell the child.
- Bits & pieces. Tennessee’s traffic fatalities are down by nearly 100 compared to last year … Metro is promising to help some of the fairgrounds tenants find new places to set up shop … Dickson County Schools are preparing for a complete shutdown if they can’t pass a new budget … Deadrick Street is finally reopening and it’s a little bit greener … Metro is now allowing church groups of up to 25 meet in public parks regularly without a permit.
