    Let’s see if I can break the streak of articles/posts that have gotten crickets in the comment section. :-) Thanks for all your hard work on this site, by the way. As to this weeks news nuggets, my comment is be about the Inspirations. Been too long since I’ve heard them in concert. My family has tentative plans to vacation in the Bryson City area this summer. Sadly, it appears the Inspirations won’t be in town over the time we are there. Bummer. Would have liked the opportunity to maybe hear some songs from their upcoming album
