But seriously, folks, it's time for our annual YOU ARE SO NASHVILLE IF ... issue, or as insiders call it, YASNI. (Now you're an insider!)

Heck, we had to wade through almost 1,300 entries just to separate the wheat from the chaff, so the least you could do is read the damn thing! But we will give a shout-out to this year's winner, Dana Delworth.

We learned that you're getting your news from street vendors, your books from the Internet (but not by choice), and nothing but static from WRVU.
