In any event, Gunnar and Matthew are currently on tour with the RICKY NELSON REMEMBERED show - a multimedia tribute show featuring live renditions of Rick’s hits, as well as “never before seen footage of the Nelson family with interviews from celebrities influenced by Ricky Nelson. The show appeals to a wide audience and multiple generations and 2010 will mark the 25th anniversary of Rick Nelson's passing with that tragic New Year's Eve plane crash.”

From the emailbag: (KIRT) WEBSTER PR’s DONNA SCHACHER writes, “Join us for outlaw southern rock as it was meant to be!” The accompanying invitation was to see BLACKBERRY SMOKE in performance November 14th at The Basement Lounge."

I was probably the only credentialed media representative present at the November 8th Walkway of Stars Induction who remembered both ERNEST TUBB and (HATTIE LOUISE) TOOTSIE (BESS).

Surprisingly, the breakfast menu provided great variety and the funniest moment of the morning. That occurred when HAZEL SMITH sat down beside me eying my plate which wasn’t full of sausage, bacon, grits, ham, breakfast sausage and whatever else one might find as part of a traditional southern breakfast.
