CabaRay will be ‘one-stop entertainment venue’ – The Nashville …

There’s no easy way to pigeonhole the new Ray Stevens CabaRay Showroom and define exactly what it is and what it will mean to Music City’s tourism and entertainment industry.

At its heart, the 700-plus seat facility will be an old-school dinner club with live performances planned nightly.

Stevens’ concept for the Showroom was inspired by his last-century performances at the Desert Inn’s Celebrity Room in Las Vegas. Closer to home, think of some tourist venues in Pigeon Forge, Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, and Branson, Missouri, and you’ll have an idea of what the country music/comedy legend is bringing to Bellevue in late summer.

“His vision is to make this thing a one-stop entertainment venue. He had that run in Branson (in the 1990s),” says WSM Radio personality Bill Cody, who is the announcer for his CabaRay Nashville television show and may fill a similar role at the CabaRay Showroom. “Ray knows what

After the New England Patriots’ triumphant overtime win against the Atlanta Falcons in February’s Super Bowl 51 in Houston, quarterback Tom Brady got some bad news: The jersey he wore in the historic win had gone missing.

Dan Patrick put the Texas Rangers on the case. Internet sleuths began suspecting random fans who photographed themselves with Brady jerseys—the kind that anyone with $125 can buy. And the Houston Police

Your Next Favorite True-Crime Show is a Comedy

When we tune in to true crime programming—whether it’s a TV series like Making a Murderer or The Jinx or a podcast like Serial or My Favorite Murder—it’s not usually for a laugh. That’s where the new NBC series Trial Error (premiering March 14) comes in. Shot in the style of criminal documentaries like The Staircase, the series follows a New York lawyer (Masters of Sex alum Nicholas D’Agosto) as he takes in a job in an unnamed Southern town defending an oddball (John Lithgow) accused of murdering his wife. And while the stakes for Lithgow’s character are, ahem, deadly serious, the series (which boasts a fine supporting cast including an excellent Sherri Shepherd) approaches the story with awkward, offbeat humor that makes it way more funny than it is fatal.

Here, D’Agosto talks to TC about the series.

This show is funny in a way that feels

The DVD Wrapup: Moana, Brand New Testament, Weissensee …

Moana: Blu-ray
Seventy-five years ago, at the behest of President Franklin Roosevelt, Walt Disney embarked on a good-will mission to South America. FDR knew that America would soon be forced to intercede in the war in Europe, at least, and Adolf Hitler and Francisco Franco had already made political and financial inroads there. Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck had already won the affection of tens of thousands of people there and Disney was greeted warmly everywhere he went. His absence from the Burbank studio coincided with the bitter walkout by animators unhappy over broken promises and the firing of a key ally. The Good Neighbor Policy excursion south not only allowed for a cooling-off period, during which federal mediators worked out a settlement, but it also led to the Oscar-nominated package pictures, Saludos Amigos and Three Caballeros. The sponsors allowed Disney to bring along a group of roughly 20 composers,
