Ballet Ball 2010
from The Tennessean, March 14, 2010
There was a lot of energy at Ballet Ball 2010. Perhaps the 400 people who turned out were curious to check out one of Nashville's newer venues, the Hutton Hotel.

Hit That Floor Hard!
from The Tennessean, December 16, 2007
Harmony Award recipients Rascal Flatts set a magical tone for the evening, and Pat Patrick and his fabulous orchestra kicked it up a notch. People were there to dance. Just ask John Seigenthaler who said he “wasn’t looking for a waltz or slow dance”-he wanted to hit that floor hard!....
