Rosetta Posey's shows continue to be a Nashville who's-who! This week's crowd had the Tennessean's Brad Schmidt (of "Brad About You") and Nashville Star's Jamey Garner, who, as Rosetta put it, was "the one who played the harmonica, kind of had longish hair, and was cute"! Don't miss Rosetta's show every Wednesday in September...at Tootsie's Orchid Lounge in the back room!
(9/6/03 Nashville) -- The "giants" are in play this weekend. Two of country music's biggest names will take to the field this weekend to tackle gridiron appearances.
HANK WILLIAMS JR. - will prove that - a country boy can survive for another football session, a new hit record, ("I'm One Of You") and to give his survivalist twist to the national anthem when the "Voice of Monday Night Football" will be in Pittsburgh for the Steelers vs. Baltimore's Ravens game on Sunday on CBS. Whether or not your team is on the field, the legendary Hank is always worth the tune-in!
LEE GREENWOOD also suits up to hit the field in Nashville to perform the seasonís opening half-time at the much anticipated Titans vs. Oakland game on Sunday.
Ironically in 4th of July polls this year, "The Star Spangled Banner" proved to be second only to Greenwood's own "God Bless The USA" as the patriotic song "most recognized" by everyday Americans. Lee's in the midst of the promotion of his own new Curb album, "Stronger Than Time."
Gentlemen - starts your engines - oh hey, wrong sport! Touchdown!
