    Hey Jeremy, if you’re out there can you get me a guest pass to the Jim Lauderdale film screening at the Grammy Museum? That sounds like it would be a lot of fun, and I do love a good freebie! (lol)

    I’d really like to hear Clare Bowen (Scarlett) and Jim Palladio (Gunnar) singing duets together on this week’s Saturday night Opry’s but won’t be able to tune in! Darn! (Guess I do need a smart phone after all…) Along with the Deacon character those two make by far the most enjoyable music on “Nashville”.

    No response from Jeremy Dylan eh? I’ll take that as a “NO!!!!”. (lol)
