DIERKS MEETS DORK
10/15/18

Backstage at his Hollywood Bowl show, Capitol Nashville's Dierks Bentley wonders why security was suddenly lax enough to permit our own Todd Hensley to lumber up to him for a photo op, or what Todd referred to as "a selfie pitcher on my talkie whatsit." Later, Todd massaged some rum and coke into his scalp, because it makes the voices hush some.

WME LEADS A VOTER RALLY
10/12/18

Country music, Memphis BBQ and low voter turnout—three Tennessee specialties!  While enjoying the first two, WME + Endeavor Impact aims to remedy the state’s election apathy with a Party at the Polls concert featuring Sheryl Crow, Jason Isbell & Amanda Shires, and others.

On 10/20, WME and Endeavor Impact will present a concert and voter turnout rally at the Ascend Amphitheater in Nashville followed by a half-mile march to the Howard Office Building polling location for early voting.

The goal is to get Tennessee out of last place in midterm voter turnouts. It fares only a little better in voter registration where it’s 40th in the nation.

Jonathan McReynolds, Lucie Silvas and Gabriel Kelly will also perform.
