Look WHOOOO Dropped By The Office

While there's never a dull moment at work, today was especially eventful, as The Nature Boy, Ric Flair, came by to talk about a new reality show that he will be starring in.  Since Flair lives in Charlotte, we have the pleasure of getting to visit with him quite often.  He is a really nice guy...and just as energetic hanging out in the studio as he is in the wrestling ring.

From his Wikipedia page:

Ric Flair, is a retired professional wrestler. Also known as "The Nature Boy," Flair is among the most well known wrestlers in the world, has been one of wrestling's biggest stars since the late 1970s. Flair is recognized by World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) and Pro Wrestling Illustrated (PWI) as a 16-time World Heavyweight Champion, although his actual tally of world championship reigns varies by source - some totaling as high as 20. In World Championship Wrestling (WCW), he also had two stints as a booker—from 1989–1990 and again in 1994.[5] According to WWE and PWI, Flair is an eight-time National Wrestling Alliance (NWA) Championsix-time WCW Champion and two-time WWF/E Champion. Flair also won the 1992 Royal Rumble and the WWE Intercontinental Championship; he was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2008.

Happy Birthday, Terry Baucom!

Today is the birthday of the love of my life, Terry Baucom. We have had a great day. We enjoyed a wonderful lunch at Basin Creek in Elkin, NC. Monday Night Football is on (go Vikings!...oops, New Orleans just scored...) We had birthday cake this evening. Terry has heard from many friends today, including Lou Reid and Jimmy Haley. A large part of Terry's day has included playing his Deering Banjo.

October 6 is also the birthday of these folks with close Bluegrass ties:

Sharon Gilchrist, Ray Deaton, Richard Bennett and Hogan Benson (son of Wayne & Kristin)

Happy Birthday, Bauc!

Such A Rewarding Time In Bluegrass

Terry and I have just returned to our room after the 19th Annual IBMA Awards Show and a quick trip down to B. B. King's for The Del McCoury Band after party. What a special night at the Ryman Auditorium. It was my great honor to have been invited by the leadership of the IBMA to serve as producer, along with Ned Luberecki, for this year's show. Prior to the show, the nominees reception was held in the ball room. Red Wine, a wonderful Bluegrass Band from Italy, entertained as we had a few minutes to visit with and congratulate this year's nominees. Terry, Ed, Jay and I shared a table with Mr. and Mrs. Buddy Cannon. Terry and I also enjoyed a visit with Katy Daley, along with John Lawless and Brance Gillihan of The Bluegrass Blog, on the Red Carpet!

The Awards Show got underway with an energetic performance of 'Lovin' Pretty Women' with The Steep Canyon Rangers. Dailey and Vincent were certainly the big winners of the evening....well, actually...Bluegrass Music was the big winner of the evening. A truly special night.

Bluegrass FanFest gets underway Friday and continues through Sunday here at the Nashville Convention Center. Terry will be spending a good part of his day with Janet and Todd and all the folks from Deering Banjos at their booth in the exhibition center. Earlier this week, Deering Banjos released the Terry Baucom Model. It is a beautiful instrument and sounds too cool for words!

More in a day or so. Thanks for reading!~CB
