From this morning’s Tennessean, a pleasant treat for an NHL team fighting their way down the difficult road to the playoffs:
Garth Brooks (remember him? Hat? Belt buckle? Sold more albums than Elvis or the Rolling Stones?) showed up at the Tin Roof in Brentwood Sunday afternoon, only to find a “Closed” sign in the window. Thwarted on the nachos front, then, right?
Uh, no. Garth was not there for salty treats nor for cold brews, but rather to play a “thank you” concert for the Nashville Predators. And Tin Roof management was more than happy to open the place up on a Sunday.
Why thank the Preds? Every member of the team made a donation to Garth’s Teammates For Kids charity. That organization works to provide health services and education for kids who need it. After the Preds delivered for his kids, Garth decided to deliver for the Preds. And since many of the Predators enjoy hanging at the Tin Roof, the club seemed like a natural fit.
