Rhinestone Cowboys (featuring the anthropomorphic personification of exploding Bedazzlers)

Hey Team, It looks like I’m more than likely headed to Arkansas tomorrow so I can go check out the Crater of Diamonds State Park but until then I have plenty to share about the last two days in Nashville. There are a lot of cities across the country that just seem to be cities.…

“No, it’s not O.KKK.”

Hey Team, I passed by a memorial today and it made me sad…but for all the wrong reasons. It was an enormous statue of a man on horseback in a Confederate cavalry uniform surrounded by the thirteen flags of the Confederacy. The man was Nathan Bedford Forrest. It was a tough thing to think about.…
