Memphis v Nashville 9

Last week's Sheryl v Heather contest was heading for a low scoring draw until a late vote from Brian  for Heather Myles and Nashville's Gone Hollywood saw the Music City snatch it at the death.

The score is now Memphis 4 Nashville 4 and I have decided that the first to 5 is the winner. So we are into sudden death and it is time for the Country boys this week in the form of Jason versus Todd.

In the Memphis corner is Jason Ringenberg sans Scorchers with Last Train to Memphis from his 2002 album All Over Creation released on Yep Roc in the States and Spit & Polish in the UK

Todd Snider has an album called East Nashville Skyline with a song called Nashville on it but I don't have that to hand. I do however have the song West Nashville Grand Ballroom Gown from his 2012 album Agnostic Hymns & Stoner Fables
A  very tough call but I'm going for Todd and Nashville. Others, of course, may choose to differ.

Jason Ringenberg - Last Train to Memphis

Todd Snider - West Nashville Grand Ballroom Gown


  1. Todd for me, although if it had been Johnny Rivers' "Last Train to Memphis" it might have been the other way round:

  2. a shocking dearth of votes. Are there only three readers today, Me, you and Ernie? my vote goes to Jason

  3. ..but Johnny Rivers' song is better

    1. Sorry Johnny - You've got to be in it to win it

  4. A place where your vote really counts! Jason today. Loved the Scorchers, and I always root for the Illinois natives.

  5. Dropped by to cast my vote and see it is crunch time - Hope someone else drops by or else I seem to be responsible for saving the honour of a city. Perhaps quite appropriately for this series I'm going with Todd and Nashville.

    Merry Christmas CC - Hope you have a good one.

  6. Ballot box probably closed by now so my vote (for Todd and Nashville) seems to be superfluous anyway.
