This is a free counseling service offered to those Nashville residents affected by violent crime, and it is available for as long as you need it.

    Kid Rock has given the public a bit of insight into his recent tirade against Oprah Winfrey, claiming a potential appearance on her former talk show soured his view of the media mogul. “My people tried to get me to do The Oprah Winfrey show years ago and her people wanted me to write down 5 reasons why I loved her and her show,” Rock, 48, tweeted. “I said f—k that and her. End of story.” Rock was escorted off stage in Nashville after going on a lewd rant against Winfrey, 68, at his own Honky Tonk Bar.

    They made chop suey of the health regulations. Just hours after being busted for washing down kitchen equipment in a local lake, a Chinese restaurant was open for business. Employees of No. 1 Chinese Restaurant in suburban Nashville, Tenn., were caught washing everything from pots and rags to grill tops at a boat dock at nearby Old Hickory Lake — a popular recreation spot — NewsChannel5 reported. A series of videos showing the restaurant’s organic approach to food safety was shared first on Facebook and then with the health department, which quickly sent an inspector to the scene Tuesday.

    The last time Nashville’s mayor’s office made national news - a scant seventeen months ago - then mayor Megan Barry resigned after pleading guilty to felony theft relating to an extramarital affair she had with the police officer in charge of her security. This time it’s for a better reason. After David Briley served as interim mayor, a full-term election is now in progress. And that election is being shaken up by Carol Swain, a woman who is - of all things in traditionally Democratic Nashville, a blue stronghold in a red state - a no-holds-barred black, Christian Republican conservative....

    The United States will face a familiar foe on Wednesday in the Gold Cup semifinals, taking on Jamaica with a spot in Sunday's final against Mexico on the line. The Americans are coming off an unconvincing 1-0 win over Curacao in the quarterfinals, winning on a goal from Weston McKennie. Meanwhile, Jamaica beat Panama 1-0 to advance. These two teams met in the 2017 final, with the U.S. winning, but Jamaica beat the U.S. in a friendly before the cup.

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- Both chambers of the Tennessee General assembly voted to approve a so-called "trigger law" that would outlaw all abortions in Tennessee if the supreme court rules to overturn Roe v. Wade. No exceptions are provided by the bill for victims of rape or incest. The only abortion that would be legal in the state would be allowed in circumstances involving "substantial and irreversible impairment of major bodily function."

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WZTV) — Tennessee faith leaders are urging Gov. Bill Lee to oppose a bill that would restrict access to abortions. More than 150 pastors and leaders signed the letter to Lee in support of keeping abortion safe and legal. Leaders are urging Lee against HB77, the "Fetal Heartbeat Bill." “Because we trust pregnant people, we know that these decisions are informed by tremendous reflection and not taken lightly,” the letter states. “When a person decides that abortion is their best option, they need community support not obstacles preventing safe access to medical care.”

    Growing up, Kelly Pietkiwicz, 29, wasn’t a runner. Sprints were her least favorite form of exercise, and she gravitated to swimming and competitive cheerleading instead. But while she was preparing to move to Nashville, Tennessee, from Memphis after college, she wanted to find a way to keep connected to Memphis. The answer? The St. Jude’s Half Marathon. “St. Jude’s Research Hospital is located in Memphis, and I had volunteered there,” she told Runner’s World. “My sister Micky was also leaving Memphis, and we both felt like we needed a way to keep Memphis a part of our lives.” So when...

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Country star Brad Paisley broke ground on a grocery store that will offer free items to people in need. The Store is a partnership between Paisley and his alma mater Belmont University. It will be located on the school’s campus and operate like a regular grocery store, except when people scan items no money is exchanged. “(This model) takes away the sting of embarrassment for a parent who maybe feels that way because they can’t feed their kid,” Paisley said. “The kids should not know what their parent is going through. That’s not stress a child needs.”...

    Led by Ethos Church, a group of Nashville churches spent 30 days praying for their city. That's not unusual, because many churches around the world pray for their cities. What sets the group in Nashville apart is that they took it a step further and decided to pray for every single resident of the city. In fact, the participants of Awaken Nashville were encouraged to send postcards letting people know they prayed for them. Some Nashvillians, however, took umbrage at the prayer and postcards, deeming the whole enterprise intrusive and a violation of their privacy.Speaking to Religion News Service,...

Among his best-known credits are the Box Tops’ “The Letter” and Presley’s “Suspicious Minds,” both #1 singles in the late...

    Violent crimes increased by more than 50 percent in 2018 in Minneapolis’ Cedar-Riverside neighborhood, nicknamed “little Mogadishu,” which authorities attribute to Somali gang activity in the area. Buried in a recent Star Tribune article was the fact that violent crimes jumped from 54 in 2010 to 84 in 2018, an increase in roughly 56 percent. Authorities attribute the violence to rivalries between Somali gangs, such as the Somali Mafia, the Somali Outlaws, the Hot Boyz, and Madhibaan with Attitude ... the Outlaws and Madhibaan with Attitude have a rivalry that stretches back years ...
