NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Havighurst)  I’m With Her, the all-star folk trio of Sara Watkins, Sarah Jarosz and Aoife O’Donovan, has released its first original band-written song.

 

“Little Lies” - a live in studio performance released on YouTube - is a single in advance of I’m With Her’s first recording, an EP of five cover songs recorded on stage in New York in 2015.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Havighurst) Guitarist Jimmy Nalls, who died in late June after 20 years afflicted with Parkinson’s Disease, lost his ability to play but he never lost the admiration of his fellow guitar players in and out of Music City. Over two years, a number of leading pickers and studio musicians worked pro bono to finish an album Nalls had started. The final product is The Jimmy Nalls Project, which was released just days before Nalls fell at his home and died from his injuries.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — A judge has ruled that same-sex couples in Tennessee have the same rights as heterosexual couples who have children born through artificial insemination.

Four lesbian couples sued after the state passed a law that requires using the "natural and ordinary meaning" of words in state law. Gay rights groups said the requirement was a sneaky way to deny same-sex couples the legal rights and protections granted to a "husband," a "wife," a "father" or "mother."

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WMOT)  --  A Tennessee hospital industry leader says no one seems to know where Republicans are headed next in the health care debate, and that continuing uncertainty is a serious problem.

GOP Senators met again Wednesday night in an effort to hammer out a health care deal after President Trump called them to the White House  and berated them for failing to keep campaign promises to repeal Obamacare. There was no indication Thursday morning the Senators had any success.

WASHINGTON (AP) — A Republican budget blueprint that would begin to clear a path for a GOP effort to overhaul the tax code this fall is headed to an uncertain fate after winning a key committee vote Wednesday night.

The Budget Committee plan faces opposition from both hard-core conservatives and more moderate Republicans even as it advanced through the GOP-controlled panel on a party-line 22-14 vote. It remains short of the votes required to pass through the House and advance to the Senate, where further complications await.
