Hello! My name is Alison. I’ve been passionate about country music since I was very young. I got to know music by following styles – rock, southern rock and the country music styles of today – and by cruising through the USA. I’ve also bought a lot of CDs! In recent years, I started broadcasting the “Les News de Nashville” on the Big Cactus Country presented by my friend Johnny Da Piedade. You can read my blog post on the Big Cactus Country site as well as here on the HorizonVU Music Blog and SHOP!

Alison and Ryman Auditorium

This information concerns all Nashville and its temple of Country Music. Last week the Nashville announced terrible news, which could have been tragic!

On August 18, a disturbed resident, known as 52-year-old Jeffrey Parsley, tried to set fire to one of the emblems of Music City, «The Mother Church of Country Music», legendary Ryman Auditorium» for still unknown reasons.

The arsonist piled newspapers at the entrance of Ryman and set them on fire, quickly harming the door. Fortunately, the security service viewed the act on the cameras of Ryman. The police and fire depepartment reacted right away.

Reassure yourselves. Thanks to the quick intervention of the firemen, the fire was very quickly stopped and there were no injuries. The security service was supported and the arsonist warned in view on 27 August with a$20 000 fine. Nashville without Ryman Auditorium wouldn’t really be Nashville. Doors harmed by the fire were immediately replaced and concerts are going to resume from September 8th.
