Like many other country music bloggers, I have been busy trying to confirm rumors about who might be appearing at the inauguration, or at one of the 10 inaugural balls in Washington, D.C. but I found something that might be just as good. and, this really is a first.
For the first time in history, Nashville will be hosting its own Presidential Inaugural Ball. It will be held Jan. 20, at 7 p.m. at the Maxwell House Hotel. The people organizing the Music City event say it will be the “largest inaugural ball outside of Washington, D.C.
The event is being put together by the Rev. Enoch Fuzz, and a group of helpful religious leaders in the Nashville community, including Dr. Charles McGowan. They expect a large array of musicians and celebrities to be attending, including gospel music legend Dr. Bobby Jones, and bluegrass/country singers Sharon and Ricky Skaggs.
It sure has been a long time since I’ve heard anything much about Ricky and his wife Sharon(White) Skaggs. It will be interesting to find out who else they plan to have at this affair. Here’s an old clip of Ricky and Sharon. Enjoy! (I love YouTube).
Time to go. Hope to get more up here for you real soon. Keep writing –winter can sometimes be a bit depressing … and you guys definitely add a little sunshine to these often dark, dreary days. See you tomorrow.
