TROY GENTRY's wife, ANGIE been following the Vanderbilt Rape Retrial?
The cast of characters includes a "mystery lady" named ANGIE GENTRY who, according to trial (and retrial) testimony, was known as a Vanderbilt "booster lady" famous for running an open bar tab for underage Vandy football players frequenting The Tin Roof. (Though it didn't involve underage drinking, the booster lady testimony reminds me of my nearly half-century-old training table adventure with TOM McMILLEN at the University of Maryland, which, in turn, reminds me of the legendary Grand Ole Opry backstage birthday cake escapade.
Funny how the mind works when it's allowed to wander...
Belated thanks to KIRT WEBSTER and SPENCER TURNER for the invitation to attend KIEFER SUTHERLAND's June 1, 2016 news conference at Webster PR's Hermitage, Tennessee headquarters. More recently, again at Kirt's invitation, I accepted a request to attend LOCASH's
listening party at Nashville's White
CHRIS LUCAS and PRESTON BRUST thanked Reviver Records, Vector Management, CAA, country radio and those gathered to watch them perform songs from their new album, The Fighters. In addition to the title song, the duo's short set included Ring on Every Finger and a song with a title incorrectly spelled elsewhere, Preston and Chris insist, called Alll Day.
"Thanks for the kind words and the link. I hope you're doing well.
"Sincerely, DEAN HALL."
Cash Box (which published my publicity releases during my time as a publicist) is long gone, but, as those of you who apparently follow both Dean and I (Thank you!) know, we are still keeping the music and acting world on its toes!
reading it here first: Davidson Country Criminal Court
You're reading it here first: Davidson Country Criminal CourtJudge ALLEGRA WALKER has decided there is sufficient evidence to justify the misdemeanor charges of assault and domestic bodily injury case against TONY BROWN. Accordingly, on July 9, 2016, Walker ordered the case against Brown be bound over to the Grand Jury.
This mixture of politics and buck-passing further delays the specifics of my explanation (for maximum impact) detailing why there is already more to this story than meets the eye.
I will say this: The Grand Jury meets quarterly. The specific meeting dates are secret as is the body's investigation and deliberations.
Hence, other media organizations, so quick to report on the initial charges and Tony's arrest, have temporarily lost interest. (You can get an idea of when the Grand Jury will meet based on its past schedule.)
Were JAMIE NICOLE BROWN's serious charges against Tony thoroughly warranted or merely (and unforgivably) frivolous? If the Grand Jury finds Tony's arrest was warranted and that the charges against him have merit, it will return with a true bill (i.e., an indictment). Because Tony would then have to stand trial, the Grand Jury's decision would become public knowledge and, because of Brown's high profile, the District Attorney's office would likely issue a news release.
If, however, the Grand Jury decides Tony has been falsely accused, its written conclusion will be stamped "No true bill." The result is no information about the investigation, deliberation and the results will be made public. It's as though nothing ever happened.
In the meantime, if SHAWN O'BRIEN, Tony or Jamie want to contact me, I'm all ears, just as I was when I was called on by interested parties during the now all-but-forgotten (in the wake of "reconciliation" and remarriage) first "go-round."
