“We’re going to have Southern comfort food and classic cocktails mixed with music and sports.” Barlines will book a variety of bands and have a weekly songwriter night on Tuesday, said Senita, who said the venue is booking its October calendar. Additionally, performances will be recorded and broadcast on the Barlines channel for hotel patrons. “We’re going to have music seven days a week from open to close, with sports mixed in as well for big games, featuring Titans games,” she said. “Our music will range from country honky-tonk style to country-rock, bluegrass, rockabilly. We have a good variety of artists that we’re going to bring in.” Barlines is on the first floor of the west side of the 800-room hotel behind the Country Music Hall of Fame at 250 Fifth Ave. S. Omni actually links up with the Hall of Fame and even incorporates items from country music legends such as Tammy Wynette and Johnny Cash along its main hallway leading from the lobby. Barlines has two full bars at opposite ends, a Southern-style menu and a “Tennessee whiskey trail” with 21 in-state whiskeys. Outdoor seating is available with a view of Music City Center across the street.

Manys the woman mistook lust for love. If they want you sexually that doesnt mean they give a f about you. All the more true when you unwittingly give the impression you dont give much of a f about yourself. And when you employ people who give the impression they dont give much of a f about you either. No one who cares about you could support your being pimped.. and that includes you yourself. Yes, Im suggesting you dont care for yourself. That has to change. You ought be protected as a precious young lady by anyone in your employ and anyone around you, including you. This is a dangerous world. We dont encourage our daughters to walk around naked in it because it makes them prey for animals and less than animals, a distressing majority of whom work in the music industry and its associated media. You are worth more than your body or your sexual appeal.
An inconvenient truth: Why music sounds bad
That’s why engineers compress music, compression boosts the softer sounds, and flattens the really loud bits, so it all comes out sounding the same. From a whisper to a scream, it’s all equally loud. Adding a little extra zing to the mix helps it cut better over the lowest-fi Bluetooth speakers, especially when there’s lots of competing sound on the beach or park or other settings. And since most BT speakers are just one speaker, mono is well on its way to replacing stereo over speakers. They haven’t figured out how to lose stereo over headphones just yet, but given enough time I’m sure it will happen. Of course, folks who occasionally listen in quieter places, over decent speakers or headphones, are rightfully appalled by the sound. They voice their outrage on various forums , including this blog , but we more attentive listeners are just a tiny minority. Most folks happily consume overly compressed and processed music, and sadly, I can’t see that changing anytime soon. That’s reality; the engineers will continue to skew their mixes by pumping up the midbass and adding sizzle to the treble, so the sound cuts through the murk. Subtlety doesn’t make sense anymore. The brightest ray of hope for good sound is the continuing vinyl sales boom, but again, the overall number of vinyl listeners is small. We can be pretty sure that those lucky few are listening to their LPs at home, and not on a bus, plane, car , or on the beach. That distinction is a crucial one, and that’s why vinyl is less likely to be enjoyed as background sound.
