Just a reminder, that you can still get your very own copy of my debut novel, The Drift.  It is available via Amazon for just $9.99 (and it is PRIME eligible). It is also available in a Kindle edition.  If you buy the paperback, you can get buy the Kindle Edition for just $0.99. 

If you are in the Nashville area, I, right now, have eight unsold copies in my car.  If you see me out and about (once I get over this cold I have) and you want a copy, let me know. I accept cash, Paypal, and Venmo.

If you are outside of Nashville and want to buy from me (and/or get  an autographed copy), just shoot me a message. I will need to charge shipping.

Well, it's the beginning of another month of shuffle here at E2TG, and it is Monday.  We have been doing Music City Monday for a while, but it has been within the last couple of months that I created the "Music City Monday" playlist on Spotify - just to feature a wider variety of great Nashville music of today and yesterday.   Here's today's shuffle:

"My Turn" by Sarah Potenza

For the second week in a row, we have a track from the album Monster by East Nashville favorite (and Top 20 contestant of Season 8 of The Voice  - Team Blake), Sarah Potenza. Potenza is a powerhouse singer and a true original of a performer. 

"Love is the Color" by The Screamin' Cheetah Wheelies

Formed in the early 1990s and led by Mike Farris, The Screamin' Cheetah Wheelies took their name from a Far Side cartoon and their sound from the Southern boogie tradition.  This is a track from their 2003 live album called  Lamanamanumi.

"All is Well" by Zach Schmidt

East Nashville (by way of Pittsburgh) singer-songwriter Zach Schmidt is up next with the first of two tracks from his album The Day We Won the War.  Both videos are from a 2016 Paste Magazine session. Fans of Buck N Stuff may want to notice the pedal steel player. 
"Big Two-Hearted River" by The Singing Butcher

The Singing Butcher (aka Timothy George) is one of my absolute favorite songwriters in town. He is working on his full-length debut album.  In the meantime, we have a track from his 2016 EP, The Butcher Papers.  George is a genuine butcher and a really great guy. 

"The Day We Lost the War" by Zach Schmidt

Track #2 for the day from Zach Schmidt. Schmidt is hard a work on the follow up album to The Day We Lost the War. He is on a short list of songwriters personally recommended to me by Darrin Bradbury.  FYI - Darrin is batting 1.000 when it comes to his recommendations being spot on the money awesome. 

"Begging to Stay" by Great Peacock

Next, we have a track from the brand new album from one of Nashville's best and most original bands, Great Peacock.  Their second album is called Gran Pavo Real - which is Spanish for Great Peacock. 

"Kiddies" by Self

After the 1980 boom of original Nashville rock music - which spawned bands like Jason & the Scorchers, Walk the West, Georgia Satellites, Royal Court of China, and more - the local rock scene went into a bit of a slump.  sElf (or SeLF or Self) led by Matt Mahaffey helped to usher in the next wave starting in 1993. This song is from the band's second album The Half-Baked Serenade. It became a minor hit, and due its references to Halloween and Marilyn Manson - still gets played in October.
