Throwing out the first pitch together was Atlanta Braves pitching ace Tim Hudson and former CY Young award winner Steve Bedrosian. Wow!!! What’s so exciting and makes the Chuck a stand out in the State of Georgia is that its the first all-synthetic baseball field!

The air show features an excitingly and breath-taking replica of the feared and famous Japanese “Zero” fighter that once ruled the Pacific skies in the early part of WW II. This aircraft is a replica A6M2 “Zero”, also known as a “Zeke” and was built for the filming of the now famous WW II film Tora! Tora! Tora! about the attack on Pearl Harbor.

Hey Peachtree City…the other night I was a part of the millions of music lovers checking out the 51st
Grammy Awards when suddenly it hit me. The music of Bono & U2, Coldplay, Kid Rock, Jennifer Hudson & others was a true reflection of life as we know it with all its struggles, successes, & failures. Yep, music is the mirror of our souls and right now its crying out for the humanity in us all.

It often becomes a collector’s item approaching the status of the Peachtree 10K shirts. This year’s will be no exception.

Been awhile since you’ve caught up with Chris Isaak? Well, in the course of his career he has only released nine extraordinary albums, twelve singles, been nominated for two Grammy awards, acted in several motion pictures and starred in his own critically acclaimed TV series. His legendary shows with his longtime band Silvertone have entertained tens of thousands of people for over two decades. Even his hair has its own fan club. And yet, this highly praised herald platinum-selling artist has never released a greatest hits album. That is until now!

Looking for a perfect ending to a great summer? How about a Trisha Yearwood concert? That’s right, Trisha Yearwood is coming to the Frederick (The Fred) Brown Jr Amphitheater on Friday, September 12, 2008
If you don’t know Trish Yearwood, her music or famous recipes then you must live on another planet whether you like country music or not. It did not hurt that Trisha Yearwood sung two of Garth Brooks’ songs on her debut album but the Georgia-born Yearwood needs no embellishment to shine. Yearwood, who grew up imitating Linda Ronstadt, may not be a Martina McBride but she has demonstrated technical and emotional authority at every turn. Talent, dreams and determination are an intoxicating little cocktail. It’s a recipe that has served to propel a lithesome Georgia blonde from local honky tonks to the world’s most prestigious stages. For Trisha Yearwood, there was never any other path but music.
