We're going to Nashville this year for New Year's Eve to see Widespread Panic at the big arena there. We're also seeing them the night before, the 30th. On the 29th they're doing a benefit at The Ryman that we tried to get tickets for but got shut out. We already had a hotel booked for 3 nights, so I went in search of another show to catch on the 29th. I'm usually not one for cover bands, but members of The Black Crowes involved in any project gets my attention. The list of musicians involved has grown a lot since we bought the tickets a few months ago too! check this out:
