An Evening with Sonny Throckmorton

Legendary songwriter Sonny Throckmorton had a remarkable 150 songs recorded in a nine-month period in the late 1970s., and he was the Nashville Songwriters Association International’s Songwriter of the Year for 1978, 1979 and 1980. Throckmorton has had more than 1,000 of his songs recorded by various country singers, the most recent being the title cut of Willie Nelson’s newest album, to be released June 21, called “Ride Me Back Home” (co-written with his daughter — and Our Place Nashville’s very good friend — Debby Throckmorton).

You can watch Willie’s new video at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7iQRbb_wGyA. It’s already been viewed by half-a-million people!

This show at Douglas Corner Cafe is free of charge.

An Evening of Music and Mind Reading

Join us for an evening of music and mind reading. Sidney Friedman - the musical mentalist - is back for a reprise performance to benefit Our Place Nashville.

He can write down what people are going to say before they even know they’re going to say it. This mind reading magician has audiences ooh-ing and ah-ing and shaking their heads in wonder. This is a show people are s]ll talking about the next morning!

James Slater will be starting the evening off. He is a two time, Grammy nominated, piano-playing, bilingual singer-songwriter of Bolivian American descent signed to BMG Publishing in Nashville.

Earth Day 2019 - Living Green

What is Earth Day? What does it mean to live a bit more “green”? How hard is it to recycle if you don’t have automatic pick-up? Recycling — the process of collecting and processing materials that would otherwise be thrown away as trash and turning them into new products — is one way many people reduce their carbon footprint. Recycling can benefit your community and the environment. But if you don’t have access to recycling yet, what can you do? Michelle Hamman, the Department of General Services’ Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Specialist, will be joining us to talk about basic information you can put into practice to live green, whether it’s recycling, eating a plant-based diet, planting a tree, or cleaning up the roads in your neighborhood, just to name a few. Michelle writes a blog at https://socket.nashville.gov.

How to Handle Anxiety | Depression

How to Handle Anxiety | Depression

Most of us are anxious about something or other — what other people think of us, are we going to be able to handle a problem — things we don’t even necessarily have the power to control. But we still worry. Or, sometime when we make a mistake, we beat ourselves up. We wonder why we can’t do something the way we want to, and it makes us get depressed. Well, we’ve got good news for you. 1) You are not alone — and it’s always good to know others are walking through the same kinds of issues we are. 2) There are tools that can help us better cope with the things that can make us anxious. Kay Arnold will be leading this class. She is a Licensed Professional Counselor/Mental Health Service Provider and her counseling interests include family difficulties, trauma resolution and general life stresses. She works with the Babb Center for Counseling in Hendersonville.
