    The story and origin of the bugle call known as "Taps" can be found in many versions, including the legend of a son fighting on the opposing side of the Civil War from his father. This legend depicts a Northern boy who was killed fighting for the Confederates. His father, Robert Ellicombe, a captain in the Union Army, came upon his son’s body and found the notes to “Taps” in the pocket of the dead boy’s uniform. When Union General Daniel Sickles heard the story, he had the notes played at the boy’s funeral. While this very short version of...

    Perhaps annoyed that “jingoistic” country music is not yet as infested with left-wing promotional politics as other musical and entertainment fields, a major newspaper again used the annual Country Music Association Awards to push gun-control politics onto the industry, Reporter Elizabeth Harris garnered the front page of the New York Times Arts section for her Saturday piece “Singing About Pain, But Not Its Source -- A country awards show may discuss its slain fans, but guns and politics are unlikely topics”: The Country Music Association Awards are supposed to be a celebration of one of America’s enduring art forms, a...

    Musical scholar Ziad Ajjan composed eight poetry and musical pieces from the musical archaeological cuneiform tablet known as "Hymn of Supplication" H6 discovered in Ugarit in the early 20th century. Ajjan composed three musical pieces based on the musical notes in the tablet which dates back to 1400 BC, naming the pieces "Sunrise," "Sunset" and "Holiday in Ugarit." This marks the recording of the oldest music notation in the history of the world. Ajjan said he is still working on the tablet based on information he reached after extensive study and previous experiment, making use of previous research by fellow...

    “America’s Got Talent” alum Benton Blount abruptly lost his opening-act gig on ZZ Top guitarist Billy Gibbons' concert tour after his pro-Trump Facebook post got him temporarily banned from the social media website. Blount was four shows into the seven-show slot when he learned he was kicked off the tour, South Carolina’s Greenville News reported. The post showed Blount wearing a red “Make America Great Again” hat and an “I Voted” sticker on Election Day while holding a Chick-Fil-A sandwich and drink. The photo carried the caption, "Someone reading this just got offended multiple times. My work here is done!...

Here are the results of some of the most high-profile endorsements.Taylor SwiftIn perhaps one of the most noticed celebrity endorsements of the midterms, Taylor Swift broke her long political silence to endorse former Tennesse Gov.

    Taylor Swift must not have known that Phil Bredesen is in trouble when she endorsed his campaign for the United Senates Senate. While Ms. Swift, to borrow the name of her second studio album, is certainly fearless as a pop star, she appears to be clueless about the flawed former governor’s record of covering up details regarding the sexual harassment allegations against his top officials. During his time as governor, Bredesen was appropriately dubbed “Shredesen” as his administration “treated harassment allegations differently when they were directed at top political appointees, with investigators being directed to shred any documentation of the...

    Pharrell Williams isn’t happy President Trump played the singer’s upbeat song at a rally Saturday just hours after a gunman killed 11 people at a Pittsburgh synagogue. Williams’ lawyer Howard King sent a cease-and-desist letter to Trump Monday that said the singer did not grant the president’s team permission to use the song “Happy” at Saturday’s rally in Illinois. King said playing the hit song when nearly a dozen people were murdered at a Pittsburgh synagogue earlier in the day was distasteful.

    Within English speaking countries the word culture has long been synonymous with the name Bob Dylan. There are many interpretations of the definition of the word culture. One definition describes culture as "the arts and other manifestations of human intellectual achievement regarded collectively." When referencing this definition with regard to the publics perception of Bob Dylan, we learn that Bob Dylan is the most revered celebrity on the planet by the intellectual community. Dylan is the most quoted and chronicled celebrity of our time. It is that chronicling that establishes him as the most revered. Hailed as a prophet by...

    All hail Saint Freddie! The extravagant, operatic lead singer of Queen is portrayed as a sanitised superhero for the 21st century in the new biopic Bohemian Rhapsody. At its laughable climax, we see Freddie Mercury finally fall in love and come out as gay to his parents, earning their tearful blessing — on the day his band achieves rock immortality with an all-conquering set at Live Aid. Actor Rami Malek plays the exuberantly camp star, who died from Aids in 1991, as a misunderstood martyr to his own sexuality.

    Singer-songwriter Tony Joe White, a prolific tunesmith whose swamp-soaked 1968 pop hit “Polk Salad Annie,” reflected his Louisiana upbringing, died yesterday, Wednesday, October 24th, of natural causes at his home in Leipers Fork, Tennessee, just outside Nashville. He was 75. White, who had a Top Ten record with “Polk Salad Annie,” also saw it popularized by Elvis Presley. He was also perhaps best known as the writer of the deeply atmospheric and soulful “Rainy Night in Georgia,” a Number Four pop hit for Brook Benton in 1970 and covered by a number of other acts including Hank Williams Jr., B.J....
