the short version .......

As those hoosiers kept saying … We spent a month that weekend in Nashville.


Oh Boy Records banner  celebrating John's #1 slot in the Americana charts, and this was his 4th week of being in the top five albums.

In Front of Oh Boy Records with Andy
Andy and I …(is he looking kind of glad that I am on the outside of the door?)

Prine Shriners out front meeting and greeting one another   Prine Shriners hanging out
Hanging out at the hotel on a beautiful Autumn day with a bunch of familiar stranger faces.

Once familiar we started with the hotel bar and took cabs to Broadway St. Friday night.

We had a hell of time with us, ourselves and we.  We spent some time at some disco and lost our  "young'n pretty one" to more tame crowd.  Kathy and I (drunk with excitement and maybe other stuff to) stopped to tell the local police that there was a new Sheriff in town (and made some tacky nightstick remark) ... good thing he didn't the sign....or we could have found ourselves in the Nashville pokey for a variety of reasons. (I am sure there's got to be a law about fondling a Police Officer's nightstick in a suggestive manner or riding a sphinx)

Nancy and I took off to do a little sightseeing before the show...and we ended up in the Ryman during the soundcheck...
