Fifteen on Friday – 11/10/17 – Issue 261
Happy Friday –
It has been a busy but relatively quiet week here in Nashville. Wednesday was Nashville’s time to shine again with the annual CMA Awards – including a phenomenal opening performance by Darius Rucker playing his 23-year old Hootie and the Blowfish hit, Hold My Hand, accompanied by a Who’s Who of Country Artists – an uplifting way to begin after the tragedy at the country music festival in Las Vegas.
Have a great weekend,
