Happy Hour: Keep The Music Playing

  • Congressman Jim Cooper toured the Schermerhorn today and it’s still looking pretty pitiful. Get well soon, Nashville Symphony! [WKRN]
  • Bloody mattress and bed bug horror stories aside, the Metro Health Department found that the Stadium Inn is in tip-top shape. For the Stadium Inn. [WTVF]
  • Kids are starting school next week (already!?) and it looks as though they will actually have books. [WSMV]
  • Thanks to the flood, Gaylord Entertainment’s revenue dropped 15% last quarter. But! They’ve already booked enough rooms for 2011 that they should be up 130% from the same period last year. [WPLN]
  • Nashvillians Ke$ha, Hayley Williams and Taylor Swift rocked the VMA nominations today. Way to go, ladies! [Tennessean]
  • Finally, Fox gives us that other country music awards show we’ve all been waiting for, because the CMAs, ACMs and CMTs were just not cutting it. [Tennessean]
  • And for your daily Basil news fix, the Scene managed to dig up his criminal record which included some insanity pleas. Also, he’s going to be debating some other candidates live at Scarritt-Bennett tomorrow night. [Pith In The Wind & Post Politics]
  • China is changing its entire adoption policy because of the Shelbyville woman who shipped her adopted kid back to Russia. [WSMV]
