It's quite easy to forget the raw, unfettered female talent in Nashville. Radio is deceiving that way. But snatch up a dozen or so of the brightest, most promising singer-songwriters and plop them down in an intimate setting, and they'll recharge your optimism for the future of country music. That's what happened during Sunday night's (March 1) Girls of Winter showcase at City Winery, as America's Got Talent's Emily West, The Voice champion Cassadee Pope, high-flying songstress Caitlyn Smith, the calmly-measured chanteuse Maren Morris and more gathered to share giggle-inducing anecdotes, charming recounts of songwriting sessions and brand-new never-heard-before songs. Proceeds benefited the non-profit Safe Haven, an effort to combat homelessness. Continue reading

I've always wondered how tough it was for Texas native Miranda Lambert to have married one of the world's most famous Okie's, Blake Shelton. She's seemed to have embraced her new found love of Oklahoma and planted her roots there, but where do her loyalties honestly lie? Continue reading

LOLOLOLOL! After Taylor Swift got all the attention last year for her Merry Swiftmas celebration, I wondered how long it would be before another celebrity tried out the same thing. Turns out Blake Shelton and Adam Levine decided to give fans their very own Swiftmas-inspired gifts. Continue reading

Even when on vacation, Taylor Swift isn't really on vacation. She has to constantly worry or stress about her every move because truth be known it's being documented. Every. Single. Move. is on film. Talk about pressure. Geez. Continue reading

No stranger to sitting down for the occasional tattoo or two (or 10), Brantley Gilbert decided to really go all out for his newest ink masterpiece. Here it is.... A photo posted by Brantley Gilbert (@brantleygilbert) on Feb 24, 2015 at 11:45am PST The singer took to Twitter on Monday to share the news that he was getting inked.

No better reason to get a... Continue reading
So you may or may not realize that NashvilleGab has been down since Friday. I moved to a new dedicated server, but apparently something in my site keeps crashing it. The hosting company is working on figuring out what is doing it so that the site will stay up, but until they straighten things out, NashvilleGab is down, down, down .... If they're not able to get things figured out, I may end up moving back to my old blogging platform since I never had any trouble with them other than my site wasn't very mobile friendly, and stay there...

Hey everyone, NashvilleGab will be going dark for a day or two. I'm currently shaking things up a bit and am moving to a new blogging platform (finally!). I wanted to work on the new site while keeping the current one up, but am finding it's just easier to shut down for a short time and come back all bright and shiny and new. I'm not sure how long it will take since as a web designer I make a better blogger. :0) Wish me luck. See you on the other side Continue reading
