I’m in Nashville laying on my cousin Robins couch. I’m actually in Nashville for Blissdom but I got here a day early to see her. She picked me up at the airport and I was starving so the first order if business was food.
Robin took me to Burger Up, a well known Nashville hamburger joint. Now I like hamburgers as much as the next person although I rarely eat them so I agreed we should go there. Robin told me that there were often famous or well known people there and I was all psyched. After all, I rarely see famous people in Greensboro.
It was crowded so we pulled up some stools and sat at the bar.
Robin: Lynn, look over there
Robin: Over my left shoulder
Me: over there?
Robin: See those two guy
Robin: the one on the left is Dunn
Me: who’s Dunn?
Robin: Lynn, it’s Ronnie Dunn
Me: who’s Ronnie Dunn?
Robin: of Brooks and Dunn
Me: Brooks and Dunn?
Robin: yeah Lynn, Brooks and Dunn. One of the biggest country duos out there
Me: hmmm…sounds vaguely familiar. So that’s him?
Me: he doesn’t look like he’s having much fun
Robin: well, don’t stare. People on Nashville don’t stare.
Me: he looks constipated
Me: should I go tell him about my blog?
Robin: no Lynn, you shouldn’t
And then we got our burgers which we ate and eventually we left and Robin took me on a tour. A driving tour. I saw Belmont College and Vanderbilt and “Music Row” and then she drove me by the Country Club called Belle Meade. By this point, I was feeling pretty sick between eating a massive burger and driving around and we had the following conversation:
Robin: Lynn, are you alright?!
Me: I feel sick
Robin: what’s wrong?
Me: I think I’m gonna puke
Robin: motion sickness?
Me: I blame it on Dunn
Me: yeah Dunn
Robin: why him?
Me: I felt fine before I saw him
And that’s why you should avoid country singers folks because even if you like country music, they’ll still make you sick.
