Garth Brooks Honored Football Player Barry Sanders and Many Confused It With a Bernie Endorsement

Well, it’s definitely an election year. Just look in the comments on country singer Garth Brooks‘ Instagram. After preforming in Detroit on Feb. 22, the renowned musician posted a photo of himself wearing a Barry Sanders jersey. Sanders is a retired Hall of Fame running back who played for the Detroit Lions. Not all of his followers understood that the jersey was a reference to the football player and an homage to the city where Brooks performed. It appears that many thought it was an endor...

Kreis, Randy and Eumir

This week in The Wall Street Journal, I interview Kreis Beall (pronounced Kris Bell) (go here). Kreis is the retired co-founder of Blackberry Farm, a luxury retreat and resort in Eastern Tennessee. Kreis talked about growing up in Knoxville and how she spent many of years steering clear of her father and her aunt, both of whom had a temper. She married Sandy Beall shortly after he started the restaurant chain Ruby Tuesday in 1972 but the pair divorced. Then their son, Sam, died in a ski acci...

‘Closer Than Together’ by The Avett Brothers [Saturday Morning Review]

I’ve listened to the Avett Brothers for at least a decade now, and I’ve listened thoroughly to all of eleven of their albums dating back to their 2002 album.

I can sing all of the lyrics to all of their songs if you put their music on and take me for a drive. I was so excited for their eleventh album Closer Than Together which came out October 2019 and, I’ve been enjoying it on repeat. I love how they aren’t complete...

Afu-Ra – “Urban Chemistry” (Album Review)

This is the 6th full-length album from New York veteran Afu-Ra. His 2000 debut Body of the Life Force is widely considered to be an underground classic & the 2002 follow-up Life Force Radio was pretty solid to me as well. Last time we heard from Afu was in late 2018 with Mazterchef & now, he’s back with Urban Chemistry. The album kicks off with “Unstop”, where Afu links up with Starrlight talking about how untouchable they are over a symphonic instrumental. The next song “Kiss the Pain” with My...
