A lobbyist for the conservative Family Action Council of Tennessee (FACT) is standing his ground following revelations that he helped orchestrate the passage of a new state law that nullified Nashville’s anti-gay bias regulations.
A string of emails between FACT's David Fowler and state legislators came to light as part of a lawsuit challenging Tennessee’s new Equal Access to Intrastate Commerce Act, signed into law in May.
A CD featuring the work of the Middle Tennessee State University School of Music Wind Ensemble was recently released by the Naxos recording label.
Headquartered in nearby Franklin, Tennessee, Naxos is now the world’s largest distributor of classical recordings.
MTSU's Dr. Reed Thomas directed the 55-member ensemble, made up primarily of undergraduate MTSU students. He said the CD,entitled "Angels in the Architecture" has been so well-recieved that Naxos is asking when the school of music will have another recording ready to distribute.
