Good morning, Nashville. This week is off to a hurried start, so here’s your quick sprint through the morning news:
- We were all scratching our heads when U2 announced a date at Vanderbilt, but it turns out that they actually approached LP Field first and were turned down. The CMApocalypse contract states that no concerts are to be held at the stadium within 30-45 days of CMA Fest. Rest assured we’ll find some way to include this in next year’s CMApocalypse Bingo board.
- The Titans lost yesterday and VY™ threw a fit. And he injured his hand! It was a banner day all around.
- Titans fans, however, racked up a huge win for the community by donating 20,000 pounds of food to the Second Harvest Food Bank.
- Oh, and there was this one incredibly heartwarming moment where a Fort Campbell soldier completely surprised his family by coming home early from Afghanistan and meeting them in the middle of LP Field.
- Nashville had some great representation at the AMAs with Taylor Swift, Lady Antebellum and Brad Paisley bringing home awards.
- The Hermitage is almost finished with its 14-month, $1.2 million restoration project.
- Enjoy the nice weather while it lasts! Rain and cooler temperatures are on the way.
