Hi ya'll,

We spent the day getting some of the local Nashville flavor by going to two shows. The first was a fiddler/comedian aboard a paddle steamboat on the Cumberland River. He did a great version of the Devil went down to Georgia, and was pretty funny too.

This evening, we went to the Grand Ole Opry. We didn't know any of the acts, but a lot of the audience seemed to, including Kevin's Dad. We did recognize some tunes. One was the Rocky Point Tennessee which was performed by the man who wrote it in the sixties. The show is really a radio broadcast, so there were many breaks for commercials, during which they would set up the equipment and mics for the next act. Most acts performed just one song, and the more current acts would only get two. Not music we usually listen to, but it was fun to hear all the variety in one show.

It was nice to come back to the same hotel instead of the constant changing in the past week! Hope you are all doing great! Kevin
