PARTS OF MY INTERVIEW
WITH JACQUELYN
COOPER ON THE LYNYRD
SKYNYRD PLANE CRASH

On October 20th 1977,
a twin engine plane carrying
the Rock 'N' Roll band Lynyrd
Skynyrd crashed in a remote
section of woods in near
Gillsburg, Mississippi. The plane
ran out of fuel and crashed
before 7:00pm, at the wooded
property.
Six lives were claimed in the crash
including band members,
Ronnie VanZant, Steve Gaines,
Cassie Gaines, Pilot Walter Wiley
McCreary, co-pilot William John
Gray, and Dean Kilpatrick
(the assistant road manager for
the group). Six other members
of the rock band were injured, two
hurt critically and four hospitalized
in stable condition.

Her grandfather owned the

on. At my request, she went up
into the family attic and dug out
newspaper articles & actual

We published it all on my

Back in the 1980's, I got
involved with the local
Nashville music scene after
co-hosting the Creekers Ball
with an old friend. Our goal
was to showcase local
Nashville bands in a concert
type setting. We had seven
acres of land which included
a large log cabin in the River
Road area of Nashville and
Ashland City.
We booked a full days worth
of local bands and
entertainers, which was the
beginning of the Creekers
Ball, a charity event.

Municipal
Auditorium
By Pat Adams
Click on links below to see
pictures from some of the shows

Back in the day the Municipal
Auditorium was the place to go for
concert and sporting events in
Nashville, but is now rarely used
for such events.
It really should be currently used
for more events, since it is a nice
mid-size venue, somewhere in size
between the Ryman Auditorium
and the Bridgestone Arena.
The venue has lots of history.
The groundbreaking for the
Municipal Auditorium was
constructed in 1962.
Some of the biggest music
acts in history have played the
auditorium, including
Elvis Presley,
The Jackson Five,
The Rolling
Stones, Bruce Springsteen and
many many more.
I saw many great concerts myself
including the Paul Revere & The
Raiders,
The BeeGees, Three
Dog Night, Grand Funk Railroad,
Kansas, Beach Boys, Elton John,
Billy Joel, Linda Ronstadt,
David
Bowie, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Atlanta

My 1984 New Years Day
Radnor Lake Video
(And, Thompson Lane
old underpass Video,
in Nashville Tennessee)
By Pat Adams from
Tennessee Concerts
I ran across a video that I had
shot on January 1, 1984 driving
through Nashville's Radnor Lake,
something that is no longer
allowed. The road has been
closed off to vehicle traffic.
This video, shows the beauty of
of what it was like to drive next to
the lake. They now have parking
lots on both sides now. Hiking is
allowed. I recently ran across an
old VHS tape that I had recorded  
this on and loaded it on YouTube
along with some water sounds in
the background. This was taped
the same day as my old video of
the old 2-lane Thompson Lane
Underpass, a popular video
among Nashville Facebook
groups. See YouTube

A review from last years
concert featuring
The Monkees at the
Ryman Auditorium
by Sherry Fey

Seeing the Monkees on
Wednesday, July 24, 2013, in
Nashville was fantastic.  I must call
it an event, because it was not just
a concert with three guys singing
and playing musical instruments.  
It was more than that…..it was a
unique event of sorts, with enough
nostalgia that we left wishing we
were back in the 1960's.

Prior to the show, as well as
throughout, the audience was
entertained by a huge video
screen of clips, some with
audio/some without, from the span
of years in which The Monkees
were popular.  Funny scenes from
television and the silver screen
brought smiles and laughter to the
faces of all who were fortunate
enough to be there.

Personally, I was amazed at the
age range of the audience.  There
were pre-teens and teenagers in
attendance as well as what looked
to be their great-grandparents.  
Monkee memorabilia was
scattered throughout the
auditorium, worn by the young as
well as the old, such as green knit
caps, double-breasted shirts, and
Monkee t-shirts; and t-shirts were
not even being sold.  I asked a
couple of older folks where they
got their t-shirts and with big
smiles they said, "We bought them
on ebay."  I mention this because
no matter what the age of the
attendees, there seemed to be no
generation gap at this event.  
Everyone was on the same page
-- they were there because at
some point in their life they liked
The Monkees and wanted to see
the band and hear their music
again.

Many songs were played; some
that are forever engrained in our
minds, and some that we had
forgotten about.  For most of the
night, the crowd was on its feet,
either singing along, dancing in
place, cheering, or a combination
of all.

When it came time for the band to
perform "Daydream Believer,"
Mickey announced, "We knew
when we put this tour together that
we would have to include this
song, but without Davy, we weren’t
sure how to handle it because we
can’t sing it, and I said to Mike,
'What are we going to do?'  Mike's
reply was, 'It is ‘their’ song; they
have to sing it.' ”  Mickey then
asked who in the crowd wanted to
come up on stage.  A lady who
looked to be in her mid-40's was
chosen.  She began singing and
the entire audience joined in….
everyone seemingly knowing
every word to the song.  The band
played the music, but did not utter
a word….it was the audience who
took control of this one, and what
a special few minutes we had.

Toward the end of the night, I
didn't see a single person move
from their seats.  Cheering was at
an optimum level for the band to
return to the stage and so they did
and performed a couple more of
their well-loved tunes.

When the event ended and
everyone left for home, smiles
were continued to be seen, but
more special than the smiles was
what was appeared to be felt, but
unable to be seen:  the nostalgic,
happy heart feeling, which I am
sure none of us will want to let go
of for quite some time.

Meghan Trainor
Congratulations To
Meghan Trainor

In the Spring of 2011,
a seventeen year old
singer/songwriter entered
and won our own Sonicbids
"Tennessee Concerts
Song Contest".

In 2014, she went on to
have a number one hit
(Billboard Hot 100) with
"All About That Bass".
Meghan Elizabeth Trainor
(born December 22, 1993) is
an American singer, songwriter,
and producer. She started
writing songs when she was 11
and soon produced them on
her computer
2 years later. At 18 she signed
a songwriter deal with Big
Yellow Dog Music, penning
tracks for the Rascal Flatts and
current Disney star Sabrina
Carpenter. In 2011 she wrote
and self-released her full
length album called I'll Sing with
You.

In 2014, Trainor gained
prominence with her debut
single "All About That Bass",
which reached number 1 on the
US Billboard Hot 100 and
topped the charts in other
countries such as Australia,
New Zealand, Canada,
Germany and the United
Kingdom.

Trainor was born and raised in
Nantucket, Massachusetts, the
daughter of Gary and Kelli
Trainor. She grew up with a
musical family, and has been
writing songs since she was 11
years old. She started a band
with her family. When she was
13, her parents bought her a
computer so that she could
compose her own songs. The
family later moved to Hyannis,
Massachusetts, so that Trainor
and her two brothers, Ryan
and Justin, could attend Nauset
Regional High School in nearby
North Eastham.

At age 17, Trainor won the
worldwide Sonicbids (2011)
"Tennessee Concerts Song
Contest"
with her song You're
Good With Me. She attended
the Durango Songwriter's Expo
and Big Al Anderson of NRBQ
introduced her to Carla
Wallace of Big Yellow Dog
Music. Trainor signed as a
songwriter with Big Yellow Dog
Music shortly after her 18th
birthday, while she was still in
high school. In 2011, Trainor
wrote and self-released two
albums, I'll Sing With You and
Only 17. She went on several
writing trips to Los Angeles,
New York City, and Nashville.
She settled in Nashville full-time
when she was 19. She has had
songwriting cuts with Rascal
Flatts, Sabrina Carpenter, R5,
and many others.

On one of Trainor's writing
trips, she met and wrote with
Grammy-nominated producer
Kevin Kadish. They wrote "All
About That Bass" in 2014, and
Trainor's publishing company
told her that many artists might
be interested in recording the
song. L.A. Reid heard Trainor's
own demo of the song and
signed her to Epic Records,
where she was able to release
the song as a solo artist. "All
About That Bass" has since
become her first #1 single on
the U.S. Billboard Hot 100
chart, and has topped charts in
various other countries
including Australia, Canada,
Denmark and New Zealand.[6]
Trainor's EP, Title, was
released in September 2014.

On September 28, 2014, the
UK's Official Charts Company
confirmed that Trainor's "All
About That Bass" made chart
history in the
UK by becoming the first act to
officially enter the Official
Singles Chart Top 40 based on
streams alone.
