As for the police, Metro Nashville Police Department spokeswoman Kristin Mumford tells the Scene that the department received a citizen's complaint one day after last month's event, and sent an officer to meet with the Eddmensons and "let them know about the Metro code regarding excessive noise, and that was it."
"If the impression is that we went there and shut it down, that's not the case," Mumford says.
Clemmons and other residents testify to the Eddmensons' efforts to be good neighbors and cause minimal disturbance to the neighborhood, an attitude that is utterly apparent in Carrie's post explaining the situation. Evidence can even be found in the unassuming appearance of their shop, which from the outside could still be mistaken for the vacant former home of George's Transmission. They opted not to be interviewed for this story but emailed a statement that they would not be leading any push to revive Supper + Song themselves.
"We have received hundreds of emails and phone calls from people in the community and around the world showing appreciation and support for Supper + Song," the statement reads. "Out of consideration for the concerned neighbors, we are not personally challenging the decision to end the series but so appreciate that there are initiatives on behalf of Imogene + Willie by folks in the community to come up with a solution."
