Taking over as music editor is a man who needs no introduction around these parts: D. Patrick Rodgers. If you've read Nashville Cream or the paper at all over the past few years, you already know he's a smart dude and a well-versed dude. He also cares deeply about the local music scene. Early on in his tenure as music listings editor, he displayed the kind of heat-seeking tenacity it takes to make it in this business, so I know the music section is in good hands. Treat him well and, just as importantly: Remember he's the guy you should be sending promo copies of your record to now.
