Jonas Brothers And Kelsea Ballerini Hit Tennessee For 2 Nights

Thursday, September 23, 2021 - by Carmen Ohagen

People are getting to enjoy their first shows back after so many shutdowns due to the pandemic and thousands of pop music fans got to live out their “Jo Bros” dreams at First Bank Amphitheater in Franklin, Tn. as the brothers brought their tour to town for two nights.

Tennessee girl Kelsea Ballerini opened the show. Mid-way through her set, Ballerini shared a video of herself as a teen wishing to meet the Jonas Brothers. Thirteen years later, she’s opening their tour.

Ballerini treated the audience to her many pop hits, while still looking like a country superstar in a rhinestone cowboy hat for part of her set.

It proved to be a special visit to the music city for the Jonas Brothers. Nick Jonas celebrated his 29th birthday with the Nashville crowd, complete with a giant golf-themed cake on stage. And the trio also got to perform their new song “Who’s In Your Head” on its release day.

The Jonas Brothers have been amassing fans for well over a decade since they got their start on Disney Channel. Through the years, they’ve transitions to strong performers in their solo gigs and have come back together in recent years to perform as a trio once again.

That said, I have never in my life been so concerned about the future of this Republic. Politics was once a legitimate contest of ideas, put forth by political figures who were sincere, ...

Roy Exum: ‘Picciola,’ At Age 185

I came in touch with a man named James Baldwin last week and he’s a man I really like. Oh, I never met him in person … no, he was born in 1841 and died 96 years ago so I have only become a recent admirer through his books. A self-educated man, he became the Superintendent of Schools in Indiana at the age of 24 for 18 years. Then, not so curiously, he worried that children were missing ... (click for more)
