So, football season is over (nice catch, Holmes), the commercials during this year's Big Game were underwhelming overall (enough with chimps and animated lizards, already) and it's Monday night again, Nashville. If you're feeling a big empty place where the NFL used to be, I don't know what to tell you except that pitchers and catchers report in less than two weeks.
Tonight Dolly Parton takes the stage at the Wildhorse alongside Ronnie Dunn (sans Brooks), (Europe is a) country singer Kellie Pickler, Keith Anderson and Jennifer Hanson. It's to benefit the W.O. Smith Nashville Music Community School, which provides instrument lessons to children whose families might not be able to afford them otherwise. Hell yeah. And Gunnar Nelson's piecing together another one of them '80s hair-metal revivals with members of Night Ranger, Slaughter and Survivor! For the kids! That'll set you back $45 and starts at 7 p.m.
