TobyMac Appears At Riverbend Tuesday Night
TobyMac Appears At Riverbend Tuesday Night

It’s Faith & Family at Riverbend, or Sweet Tea Night as it is often called. Big-time star TobyMac headlines the Coke Stage at 9 p.m. Last year, some folks requested they start a bit earlier on this night, since there are more young folks at Faith & Family night. Riverbend listened and backed the start time up to 9 p.m.

Having sold more than 10 million albums, with six Number 1 singles, TobyMac has multiple Grammy wins to go along with more than a dozen Dove Awards. He is also one of the few Christian rappers. TobyMac tours the world and will be coming to Chattanooga straight from a stop in Alaska a couple nights before Riverbend.

The Bud Light Stage features Standing Against The Odds at 5 p.m., followed by Ten Mile at 6:16 p.m. Headliner Cody McCarver takes the Bud Light Stage at 7:45 p.m. McCarver, formerly of Confederate Railroad, has starred in Hollywood movies and embarked on a successful solo career in music. His most recent efforts include a Christian based album. Look for a great band with wonderful message.

On the VW Stage, Coley starts the evening at 5 p.m., followed by the Victory Praise Team. Led by former Bud Lightning front man Chris Gomez, I know they will bring a great band. Robert Streets follows with what should prove to be another stellar band.

My pick of the night is the Victory raise Team, along with Cody McCarver. Robert Streets will bring a great band, sound, and message at 7:30 p.m. on the VW Stage.

The UNUM and TVFCU stages are dark this evening.

Change in $1 Shuttle Bus Service

The $1 shuttle bus service will be operating from the Marina Gate at Riverbend to the Chattanooga Choo-Choo each evening from 6:15 until Midnight. The shuttle will not be stopping at Finley Stadium. The free Carta shuttles run from the Choo-Choo to Riverbend, but service stops at 11 p.m.

See you there!

Please Don't Close The Piccadilly Cafeteria At Hamilton Place - And Response

Oh, no.

I sure wish there was some way that Hamilton Place and ... (click for more)

Roy Exum: 10 Tasks For This Week

In 1993 a 95-year-old man named William Snell created a list called “Life’s Little Instructions.” His list has swirled around in the Internet ever since and it is, indeed, a delightful checklist to keep us focused in the right direction. Curiously, when I read over it this past weekend, it dawned on me that if each of us would try to accomplish just 10 items on Mr. Snell’s list ... (click for more)
