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.

Here are photos and highlights from the first big show at Nashville's Listening Room Cafe featuring: Tony Mullins, Bob DiPiero, Chris Wallin, and Aaron Barker 'in the round'. The Listening Room Cafe recently moved to downtown Nashville, TN after being located in Franklin, Tennessee.

Last night we got to see Shawn Mullins perform "in the round" at the Bluebird Cafe. What a treat! There's nothing better than seeing your favorite performers in small settings like such small, intimate places. Along with Shawn Mullins were Chuck Cannon and Mac Davis. I know... what a group! And we had great seats.

Isaac Hayes died today. Here is my one brush with greatness... the day I met that sharp dressed man named Isaac Hayes.

Actress Sean Young put on her dancin' shoes and sang a Country song that she co-wrote with a couple of Nashville songwriters at the season finale of Gone Country 2. The show was taped at the Wildhorse Saloon. Her song was called "Time For The Boy To Grow Up".

Jermaine Jackson performed at the Wildhorse Saloon in Nashville during the final taping for Season 2 of Gone Country. His song was a mellow one. It was called 'Loving You Is The Natural Thing To Do'. He co-wrote it with Nashville songwriters Billy Lawson and Anthony Smith.

The folks at Anheuser-Busch have created a new Bud Light Real Men of Genius ad. This one's called Mr Sad Country Song Songwriter, and they've dedicated it to Dierks Bentley -- one of Nashville's top singers and songwriters! Here is the commercial, along with the words & lyrics.

There are a lot of interesting notes about Lorenzo Lamas and his performance at the Wildhorse Saloon in Nashville -- for the taping of Gone Country 2. For starters, his daughter Shayne Lamas was the lucky bachelorette chosen by Matt Grant on this season's The Bachelor. And Lorenzo's ex-wife Shauna Sand was at this show with their little girl.

The moment Mikalah Gordon stepped on stage at the Wildhorse Saloon in Nashville for the season finale of Gone Country 2, she had the crowd on their feet and cheers from every corner of the place. Not only was she the 'hottest' chic in the competition this year, most of the guys in the front row were convinced she was the hottest thing in the building!
