The streets were full of shoppers seeking new craft discoveries and good food.
It’s songtime as Zack Stevens, of Murfreesboro, plays his guitar. Stevens said he was hanging out with his girlfriend, a merchant at the show.

If Willie and Waylon (and the boys?) had shown up, seats of honor were waiting.
Bell Buckle was a sea of orange Saturday in the hours before Tennessee’s win over Alabama. Among Vol fans were Rhonda Farriss, of Whitwell, and her son, Archer, who already had his game face on.
“You can buy everything but the kitchen sink,” the old expression goes. On Saturday in Bell Buckle, you COULD buy the kitchen sink.
