After live tweeting through last night’s season premiere of “Nashville,” and then discussing the episode this morning around the water cooler (okay, not really … we were just at our desks), it dawned on me: every character who appeared to be doing a good deed was really doing something that would ultimately benefit them.

The arrest of five players on the Vanderbilt football team this summer regarding an alleged gang rape shocked Nashville and college football fans across the nation. The five young men allegedly sexually assaulted an unconscious 21-year-old female student inside a Nashville campus dorm last June. Now, a new BuzzFeed article sheds more light about the alleged incident.

My boyfriend Nick and I have lived in Tennessee for almost two months now. After spending most of our lives in the Pacific Northwest, we are total newbies to the South, so while we are by no means experts on Southern culture, we also don’t take any part of it for granted. From big hair to sweet tea, we are drinking it all in. There are a few aspects of Southern life that I’m not a big fan of (the wasps here are the size of birds), but for the most part, I already feel like Southern living is the only way to live. Here are 10 reasons why… Keep reading »
