#1 I won an "Amateur Night" in Nashville.10-10-2009, 08:43 PM
Popped into this little dive called the Nashville Palace, across the street from the Grand Ol Opry. We were drinking quite a bit, I started out drinking Yuengling and switched to Jack Daniels, so I was feeling no pain.
I met a kid and his wife, newlyweds, from Kentucky. Kid told me he was a truck driver and his name was Jeb Stuart. They were pretty drunk too, and as we were listening to the "amateurs" (this is Nashville, there ARE no "amateurs"), Jeb Stuart says to me..."I can sing a couple of songs, maybe I could win the prize tonight".
I told Jeb that I sorta could play the guitar, and we should maybe do a song together. After a couple more Jack Daniels, I borrowed a guitar from a guy, and we got up and played an oldie.
Sure were surprised when we won. $150. I gave it all to Jeb, he was on his honeymoon.
Looking back on it, the song we did (his choice) was kind of funny, I hadn't played it in YEARS, I guess I was just drunk enough to remember it....
Only in Nashville.

everlasting coincidence far more miraculous than a miracle.”

For some reason I thought you didn't drink.
Anyway, who knew Yuengling, Jack and Chevy Van, when combined, would make for a positive outcome. :pBe Not Afraid.

That was nice of you to give them the cashola.
Hey, you missed a classic kook we had here this week called tinyhouse.
Go look in GD for a thread on tiny houses. He/She was your typical
arrogant Left Wing nutjob. :DMay the FORCE be with you!

That is cool!! You told the guy you could "sorta" play guitar.
I have had some great times with my guy and his guitar when things were not planned ahead..
