KACEY MUSGRAVES, "Zodiac
Vodka™'s brand ambassador," introduced
the alcoholic beverage of the evening's choice in the form of three
varieties of mixed drinks available at the open bar to those attending
the invitation-only June 16, 2015 launch event at the Acme
Feed & Seed Bar.
Those accepting JAIME KINSLEY's invitation to
attend the Texas brand's Tennessee rollout munched on mini
beef and chicken sandwiches inspired by Alba, Texas native Kacey's
song, Biscuits, as they,
and the roomful
of invited guests. watched Kacey judge an interactive cocktail
competition pitting top Nashville bartenders against each other in the
creative quest to
determine which bartender could claim superlative bragging
Musgraves proclaimed her enthusiasm for Zodiac Vodka™'
as the "healthy alternative" to competitors, since the non-GMO craft
potato spirit is also gluten-free.
Stevens' show will consist
of different themed segments, including a songwriters segment,
Nashville Cats (featuring Nashville's session musicians) and an "Old
Guy" portion of the show (probably easier to book than an "Old Girl"
salute, though that, along with a specific channel/network destination,
remains to be seen).
In case you're wondering, the "old guy" featured in the pilot is
octogenarian BOBBY BARE.
Ray's cabaret is set to
open in the summer of 2016.
The TV series' announcer GARY
BEATY was on hand to introduce Emery to the
crowd, the majority of which was seated in the section
reserved for the original series cast and crew (a smart way of
expressing gratitude to the show's "family," not to
mention padding the house on a rainy afternoon). For
more interesting memories and facts about the show or if you have
questions about who attended the de facto "reunion," email

helping those who, like himself, live with muscular dystrophy while
also funding education about and research for the disease.
Those efforts appear to be paying off as Walker makes the
accommodations necessary to continue to entertain his legion
of fans, as thoroughly as he ever has, with every expectation
that Clay will continue to do so next year, 2016, which will
mark the 20th year since Walker's diagnosis!
