Review for Josh Preston:

Over the past few years, you could find Josh Preston playing with a number of bands (The Mables, Daphne and The Mystery Machines, Adam Burrows, Tumbleweed Company) around Nashville on any given night of the week. It was this submersion in Music City’s stylistic stew of rock, pop, funk, blues and Americana that transformed his guitar playing and personalized his approach to songwriting.The experiences and observations gathered during this time have embedded themselves on his new, self-titled release. 

Backed by musicians with a deep connection to the musical roots of rock and soul, these well-crafted songs dance from heartfelt to humorous and shine a spotlight on who he's become as an artist. Josh Preston's self-titled release is an honest reflection on both his social status and the status quo.

Drink Up, Chattanooga

I attended the meeting to discuss the placement of the sewage treatment plant at the Cambridge Center in Ooltewah today. My problem with the meeting (aka) dog and pony show, is that the meeting started out with the agenda of the Ooltewah Community Council.  After living in this area for 45+ years I have never heard of this group.  I would like for someone to answer ...

Roy Exum: Vols: ‘Don’t Let Up’

The idea was hatched a couple of years ago. Some Tennessee football fanatic had gotten wind that an Oklahoma player had documented his baptism to havoc inside Neyland Stadium.
