Saw a City Council member or two from Roane County in the crowd at the Tennessee Theater last night. I didn't turn around to see if they were singing along with everyone else on "Wagon Wheel" but I give them credit for going to see Old Crow Medicine Show anyway.

There were at least two teachers and a few other local folk who said howdy at some point during a totally raucus night, where OCMS "rocked me like a South bound train" and several other forms of transportation. I think the crowd sat down once for a few minutes, but mostly it was as aerobic a concert as you'll ever see with acoustic instruments.

So Ray, I hope Yonder Hollow was fun, but I know where some of the missing councilmen were. And don't be surprised if their legs seem a little tired today...We were dancing pretty hard last night.

...along with 1500 other folks who were a whole lot younger than us.

They kept up pretty well, though.
