‘I’m goin’ to the chapel, and I’m gonna get…’ political?
Wonder what’s going on at East Waynesville Baptist Church this morning? Will the faithful be in a furor? What will the preacher say today? I thought about driving out there, but I’ve got some Mother’s Day duties to attend to. Still, if I get a report, I’ll let you know.
Spreadhead cracks head
The Widespread Panic fans known as Spreadheads were out in full force in downtown Ashvegas last evening. One bunch of partiers got busted in a parking lot. The cops pulled a keg out of the back of a vehicle and what tumbled out with it? A big ol bag o’ Mary Jane. Oops.
Later Saturday, the cops got a 911 call to attend someone who had fallen down and cracked open his head. It went something like this:
Dispatch: “Asheville Civic Center. Subject in need of assistance.”
Paramedic to dispatch: “Subject with a gash to his head. Bleeding profusely.”
Paramedic: “Be advised – subject’s friends say he had cocaine and mushrooms tonight.”
Montgomery to Gentry: The show must go on
Country duo Montgomery Gentry visited Ashvegas last week. One of ’em came away with an injury. Here’s the down-low from TwangTownUSA.com:
On Thursday night in Asheville, Eddie Montgomery of Montgomery Gentry stepped on a speaker cabinet beside the stage, which gave way and sent him tumbling to the arena floor. Montgomery dusted himself off and completed the rest of the 90-minute set. After a trip to the local ER it was determined he had broken four bones in his left wrist. Montgomery was put in a cast and is on his way to Mississippi for shows this weekend.
“I knew it was a serious injury by the look on Eddie’s face and the fact that his arm was dangling at his side the rest of the show,” said Gentry.
WKSF Assistant Program Director/Music Director Brian Hatfield told AllAboutCountry Montgomery blacked out for about 30 seconds, got up and taped his wrist up and finished the entire show.
I heard old Eddie grabbed a roll of duct tape and wrapped himself up. Thank goodness for duct tape. Them country boys is tough.
Wow, that Montgomery Gentry story is something else. A friend of mine now works as nanny for Gentry and she says he’s really, really nice, so I wish them both well, and am dazzled that Montgomery continued to do the whole show after breaking his wrist.
