Being new here, it seems I’m constantly surprised living in Nashville. Once I made a comment I wouldn’t be surprised if I walked into a Waffle House and found a stage and mic stand. It seems I spoke too soon.
On Saturday, I walked into McDonald’s, and noticed call letters next to the McDonald’s logo. When I entered the establishment I saw to my left a stage, mic stand, and you guessed it, someone singing their heart out. His name is Ron Crites and he is extremely talented, and has opened for George Jones, Brad Paisley, Roy Clark, and many others. Truly a talented singer/songwriter, Ron markets himself as a “Country Variety Music Acoustic Solo Artist.” His new album is a tribute to George Jones. Later after talking to a McDonald’s employee, I found out the reason for the mini museum within McDonald’s as it is the site of radio station WMAC of Nashville. I believe my Saturdays will be at McDonald’s from now on, hopefully seeing Ron and his one man band.
