I frequently ride my bike on a route that takes me past Tim McGraw and Faith Hill’s house in Franklin, TN. Actually, there are 6 houses on the property, 4 of which are livable. Here are photos I’ve taken of Tim and Faith’s house through the years.
I can’t count the number of times I’ve been to George Jones’ house in Franklin, TN. Each year, I made a point to visit George Jones home to see his one-of-a-kind Christmas light display. George Jones recently put his Williamson County home up for sale — 4025 Nestledown Drive, Franklin, TN 37067. Here are fun facts, photos, and videos.
Shawn Mullins and Chuck Cannon often do shows together. I’ve seen them both — separately and together — several times. The fact that Tom Bukovac was also on stage this night at 3rd & Lindsley was a huge bonus for me. Not to mention the fact that I got to sit with Chuck’s wife (Lari White) and Tom’s wife (Sarah Buxton) and meet another Nashville singer-songwriter (Jeanne Richardson). Here are photos from this fun night!

The CMT Awards show precedes the CMT Music Festival each June. We scored some press passes this year! Here’s how things went at the CMT Music Awards show, and some of the unique things that I saw this year…
I guess we’ll have to find another Nashville celebrity home to take the lead spot in our informal ‘Tour of the Stars Homes’ that we take visitors on when they visit Nashville for the first time. Sadly, Alan Jackson’s plush 19,000 square-foot home is now for sale. His house has been the highlight of our tour for many years.
We saw Darius Rucker for the first time in concert last night. He was having a free show at the Grand Ole Opry — it was part of some promotion with the Jimmy Kimmel Live show. The Darius Rucker concert footage from this particular night airs this Thursday, August 27th on Jimmy Kimmel Live. Here are photos.
We’ve seen Chuck Cannon and Lari White several times before — usually at The Bluebird Cafe. Last night, we were pleasantly surprised to see phenomenal guitarist Tom Bukovac on stage with Chuck. It was a great show with both Chuck and Lari’s bands on stage at 3rd & Lindsley in Nashville.
Eric Hutchinson played at 3rd & Lindsley, a place that seats less than 300 — which, if you ask me, is the best way to see musicians: up close & personal! Here are my photos and thoughts about Eric Hutchinson’s show in Nashville, Tennessee.
