So 4 years ago today... I lefts Knights Inn and went to thew Country Music Hall of Fame. I took the RCA Studio B tour.
I accidentally ended up standing where Jim Reeves stood in while recording vocals. When got back from there I called Douglas Corner Cafe to play their Writers Round. I was 1:45 pm. I got right through. The web page call between 1 and 6 pm. Then Continued my walking around the Hall of Fame. I laughed out loud after seeing Buck Owens had the same picture with woman in an English riding outfit holding up a glass of champagne, in front of a Rolls Royce, parked in front of the Dept of Health Education and Welfare, caption "Poverty Sucks" in his office. I have the same picture on my wall. At 8pm I got to Douglas Corner and found out that you really need start calling at at 1255pm and redial till you get through. I was number 53 and I had wait to get to play. I met Donnie Winters and Rhonda for the first time. While killing time on the deck in back I met Emmett Grayson McCarthy for the first time. Who gave me some sage advice on how things work here. I finally got to play at 210am to tables and chairs and Tommy Turner who I did not know yet. Thus my first performance in Nashville happened on my 2nd full day in town.
