ABBA (kinda) comes to Nashville

ABBA is one of those groups that enjoys cult status. Even though the group hasn’t performed in nearly 25 years, their music has enjoyed numerous periods of renewed, or growing, interest. Numerous tribute bands and covers have kept the spirit of the band alive, and the hit musical-turned-film Momma Mia! is constructed around the groups music. On May 12, 2015, the Nashville Symphony is bringing ABBA to Nashville! Well, “ABBA The Concert: A Tribute to ABBA,” anyway!

“ABBA The Concert” is a production of 21st Century Artists, Inc., which has been presenting various ABBA tribute shows—including ABBA The Music, ABBA The Concert, and ABBA The Hits—for over a decade. According to the Nashville Symphony, “audiences all agree: this is the closest to ABBA you’ll ever get.” And the show’s performance proves that there are some HUGE ABBA fans out there. “ABBA The Concert” has played to sold out shows at Los Angeles’ Hollywood Bowl, Chicago’s Highland Park, and other, more intimate venues.

So whether you are an ABBA megafan, or just fell in love with Mamma Mia!, you really must visit the Nashville Symphony’s engagement of “ABBA The Concert.” It may be a long time before you have another opportunity to see the “top ABBA tribute group in the world” playing all of the songs you just can’t help but love, and know by heart, songs like “Mamma Mia,” “S.O.S,” “Money, Money, Money,” “The Winner Takes All,” “Waterloo,” “Gimme, Gimme, Gimme,” and “Dancing Queen.”

“ABBA The Concert” will appear at the Nashville Symphony on Tuesday, May 12, 2015 at 7:30 p.m. For tickets, or information about the Symphony’s other performances, visit

WhistlePig + Alfa Romeo F1

SHOREHAM, VT (September 13, 2023) — WhistlePig Whiskey, the leaders in independent craft whiskey, and Alfa Romeo F1 Team Stake are waving the checkered flag on a legend-worthy release that’s taking whiskey to G-Force levels. The Limited Edition PiggyBack Legends Series: Alfa Romeo F1 Team Stake Barrel is a high Rye Whiskey selected by the Alfa Romeo F1 Team Stake drivers, with barrels trialed in their wind tunnel to ensure a thrilling taste in every sip.

The third iteration in WhistlePig’s Single Barrel PiggyBack Legends Series, the Alfa Romeo F1 Team Stake Barrel is bottled at 96.77 proof, a nod to Valtteri Bottas’ racing number, 77, and the precision of racing. Inspired by Zhou Guanyu, the first Chinese F1 driver, this Rye Whiskey is finished with lychee and oolong tea. Herbal and floral notes of the oolong tea complement the herbaceous notes of WhistlePig’s signature PiggyBack 100% Rye, rounded out with a juicy tropical fruit finish and a touch of spice.

When I started medical transition at 20 years old, it was very difficult to get the care I needed for hormone replacement therapy because there are very few providers trained in starting hormones for trans people, even though it’s very similar to the hormones that we prescribe to women in menopause or cisgender men with low testosterone.

I hope more providers get trained in LGBTQ+ healthcare, so they can support patients along their individual gender journey, and provide the info needed to make informed decisions about their body. I’ve personally seen my trans patients find hope and experience a better quality of life through hormone replacement therapy.
