You can catch me dishing the dirt from Nashville during my Nashville News Roundup radio segment on WFKY out of Frankfort, KY.  Tune in on Fridays at 9:15 am via the radio, online at, or the Tune-In App (search for WFKY).  Without further are this week's headlines:
I See Luke
Starting today, you can check out the new exhibit at the Country Music Hall of Fame featuring Luke Bryan. The exhibit includes his childhood piano, baseball uniform, poster from the club he first perform, and clothing.  It runs through November 8th.  If you wait until July, you can check out his, as well as the Trisha Yearwood exhibit and Nashville Cats exhibit.
Local Album Release
John McHugh, who has been known locally for playing guitar with Puddin Howell, George Molton, and more, has released a solo album. The album is called Anger to Ambition.  On Thursday, May 28th he will be hosting an album release party at Austin City Saloon.  It is available for download on I-tunes.
Loretta and Jack Go Walking
On June 4th, you can catch Loretta Lynn and Jack White at the Music City Walk of Fame in Nashville.  It is across from the Country Music Hall of Fame and free to attend the ceremony.
