Last Thursday, I flew to Nashville, Tennessee to spend a few days with my friend, Taylor, from college. She’s from Nashville so I flew home with her for the weekend and we had a great time exploring the city.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: I am a sucker for award shows. Particularly music based award shows! Most of the time, said shows let me down in regards to entertainment and quality of the performances, and the 2016 Grammys were most definitely full of letdowns and a few nice surprises.
