Small Victories

There’s so much news that I want to share with all of you, but today…I’m going to take a moment to be thankful for the small wins. Oftentimes we think in terms of large scale accomplishments. We look for the big “notch in our belt” moments. Number one singles, GRAMMY nominations, sold out tour dates,  […] Read more…

Artist feature: The quotable Emily West.

This interview took place in early February, and it had snowed over the weekend. There was still ice on the sidewalk leading up to my house. I heard a knock on the door and there was Emily West—glowing, holding a pair of  sexy high heeled boots…she was barefoot. It was love at first sight. I […] Read more…

“Nashville” Recap: Season 4, Ep 11

We’re BAAAAAAACK! INSIDER’S TAKE: WHAT THEY GOT RIGHT VS. WELL…KINDA. The majority of this week’s episode centered around the long awaited wedding of Rayna and Deacon. So it was really much more about the wedding than it was about anything “Nashville” or music business related. What They Got Right: 1)Will is reluctant to go to […] Read more…

“NASHVILLE” RECAP: SEASON 4, EP 8

INSIDER’S TAKE: WHAT THEY GOT RIGHT VS. WELL…KINDA. What They Got Right: 1:Marcus in the studio: I’m almost positive this is the studio Sound Emporium on Belmont Blvd. It’s a great studio. I’m not gonna get super judgey about the set-up etc…because they don’t reveal that much about what they’re actually doing, but to me […] Read more…

“Nashville” Recap: Season 4, Ep 7

INSIDER’S TAKE: WHAT THEY GOT RIGHT VS. WELL…KINDA. Before I dive in to Right/Kinda… I just wanted to share Layla Grant’s tribute to Jeff Fordham from this week’s episode. (The song, Too Far From You, was actually written by Sarah Siskind, and of course Sarah’s version is beautiful…moodier too.) But it seems like Aubrey Peeples is really […] Read more…

“Nashville” Recap: Season 4, Ep 6

INSIDER’S TAKE: WHAT THEY GOT RIGHT VS. WELL…KINDA. Every week I get a little stressed out that there won’t be any “well…kindas” to write about, because the show will have figured out all things Nashville….thankfully that hasn’t happened yet. But this week, the opposite was true. It’s not like they didn’t get anything right…there just wasn’t […] Read more…
