Blogging Neil in Nashville
And speaking of Nashville memories, we've been a little backed up here at Thrasher's Wheat with everything that's going on.
If you can't get enough of the incredible "Prairie Wind" happenings that when down last month at the Ryman, here's something that will keep you busy for a few hours.
Makes for nice printing for the commute. Enjoy!

Still not enough?
Here's a blog from XPN Radio by David Dye. The blog is terrific and the comments are just as wonderful. Like this comment by Marianne:
" "After the Gold Rush" is at the top of my album list. I spent my 16th summer like all the others, in Wildwood with my cousin, my best friend. She met her first love that summer. At night they'd go walks on the beach and I'd sit alone in his car, listening to that album from start to finish, over and over. The music wrapped around me, soaking in, stinging, crashing into me like the waves did when they caught me unaware. It helped me see who I was and who I was becoming."
Also, see more commentary on the Nashville Ryman concerts and the new "Prairie Wind" CD.
