Nashville, TN '07 Part Two:

Hey everyone, here's part 2 of my ongoing series of adventures here in the South.

Today we had workshops at Warner Brother's records, we had a tour and saw a lot of gold and platinum records on the wall. Also a lot of break rooms and meeting rooms (the security guard had a thing for them for some reason.. seriously.) After the tour we received nametags and had a Q&A session with some industry bigwigs here in Nashville. They answered questions about the general music business and what it was like to live in Nashville.

The main meat of the day was having Beth Neilsen Chapman and Rodney Crowell perform for us, give us a talk about the music business and answer questions. It was really informative and entertaining. I feel like I'm really close to having a breakthrough in terms of my writing so I think that there's going to be some very exciting new stuff soon.

After that we went to the Grand Ole Opry. It was really cool. The whole thing was broadcast on the radio and part of it was live on TV. They provided everyone with complementary tickets to the show and it was awesome.
Matt was really REALLY excited.

Gretchen Wilson and Loretta Lynn (and others!) performed and then Berklee presented Loretta with an honourary doctorate for her contributions to modern music. We then got to go on a backstage tour of the Opry which was really really neat because they took us backstage while the show was still going on. We got to see the dressing rooms and staging areas then they actually took us onto the stage.

Check it out! We're actually behind the band! Just a glimpse of what it'd be like to perform at the Grand Ole Opry!

Judy was pretty much the best tour guide ever.

Oh Snap!! It's cornbread!

Well we're getting up early tomorrow to go on a tour of a real professional Nashville studio and we're going to an open country/bluegrass jam so stay tuned to this space for more Spring Break action!!!!

Yes if the truth be known, in some moments I can phrase that I approve of with you, but you may be considering other options.
to the article there is still a without question as you did in the fall publication of this request 5.53 pro ?
I noticed the catch-phrase you have in the offing not used. Or you partake of the dark methods of development of the resource. I possess a week and do necheg
