EMMYLOU HARRIS led mourners attending the July 14, 2014 JOHN SEIGENTHALER Celebration of Life (at Nashville's Cathedral of the Incarnation) is the singing of We Shall Overcome.

I was overcome by the view from the media section (and from the visitation at the First Amendment Center the day before) of the titans of politics, government and journalism, in particular as they came to pay their respects.  When, as an entertainment journalist, you've met every entertainer you'd ever want to meet, your celebrities of choice, if any, have always been in other fields.  I've had a half-century love affair with the KENNEDY family (which must be my destiny, given my fairly recent discovery through one of other loves- genealogy- that I am "related" through RORY KENNEDY's husband, MARK BAILEY).  

So imagine my surprise encountering Dr. WILLIAM KENNEDY SMITH (whose mother, JEAN I met at a Davis-Kidd book signing) as I walked toward the cathedral and, following the service, having the chance to be reacquainted with ETHEL KENNEDY (whom I first met during the early '70s), and her son, JOSEPH KENNEDY, II (whom I almost met in 1967 when I met Joe's father, ROBERT KENNEDY in RFK's senate office and whom I finally got to meet in Nashville along with Joe's wife, BETH when Joe keynoted an HRC dinner here several years ago).   Beth was by Joe's side when Joe (who along with his cousin, Willy and brother, ROBERT KENNEDY, JR. served as John Seigenthaler's honorary pallbearers) introduced me to his youngest (twin) son, Congressman JOSEPH KENNEDY, III whom I regaled with stories of having met so many of his relatives; Joe, III being the first of his generation of Kennedys I can now say I have met.

Several members of the Kennedy family are authors and like them (as well as several country-music stars-turned-authors), I had the pleasure of receiving and accepting an invitation from John Seigenthaler to appear on A Word on Words

It remains one of the highlights of my 45-year career in journalism.

ROBERT ELLIS ORRALL's suit against BARRY COBURN which, began in early 2014, continues to drag on in Davidson County Chancery Court.  Orall is suing Coburn and Barry's Ten Ten Music Group, to which the songwriter was signed nearly seven years ago, for $50,000 in royalties.

If you're into royalty statement analysis, synch performance and licensing, and tracking portal uploading, live performance and new media this position, with a salary in the $50,000 range for someone with five years' experience or more, is for you!

If you're more the Coordinator, Publishing Administration type, with one to three years' experience, Round Hill Music would like to interest you in a full-time position in "general music publishing administration.

The coordinator will report to the Head of Administration and be responsible for Song Delivery and Registration, Label Copy and Licensing, Copyright Research Administration and General and Sub-Publisher Administration; this in return for a salary in the $40,000 range.  To apply for either of these positions, email a cover letter and résumé to the company by clicking here.
