In addition to his rich vocals, Jeff Cook, "Mr. Musician," played lead guitar and fiddle for Alabama and helped propel the group to 21 gold, platinum and multiplatinum albums, 42 number one singles, two Grammy Awards, 23 American Music Awards, three CMA Entertainer of the Year Awards, ACM's Artist of the Decade, RIAA's Group of the Century, and more than 78 million records sold.

After retiring from the road in 2004, Alabama left millions of their fans wanting more of the down-home country music they had been enjoying for almost three decades. Five years later, Jeff cranked up his Allstar Goodtime Band, to bring their audiences a Smokin', House-Rockin' Goodtime Show. He and the band have released several CD's and they have something for most genres and includes the familiar "lick" of Jeff's well-known guitar and fiddle. 

Each dinner patron at the restaurant will receive a raffle ticket at the door from the hostess. The correlating ticket will go into a fish bowl, and winners will be drawn throughout the evening from stage for chances to win passes to tour the Fontanel Mansion and a variety of prizes courtesy of Gary Yamamoto Custom Baits, Costa Del Mar Sunglasses, Shimano, American Rodsmiths, Owner Hooks, Plano Molding, P-Line fishing line, Aftco Bluewater Sportswear and new sponsors Wolverine Boots, CampChef, and High Mountain Seasonings.

Thursday Night Fishing Club founder Gary Shiebler along with bassist Jimmy Johnson will bring a seasoned ensemble to the Farm House Restaurant that includes musicians who play for Vince Gill, Patty Loveless and the Grand Ole Opry. The music series will peak in June with the 4th annual Porter Wagoner Memorial Artist/Angler Fishing Tournament.

The Farm House Restaurant at Fontanel opened in June of last year and has become a staple for local residents as well as visitors to the Nashville area. Virtually every item on the farm-to-fork menu features some ingredient from a local Middle Tennessee farm. Interested in eggs and Chardonnay? Breakfast is served all day, and patrons may bring their own wine, with no corkage fee. The full menu can be viewed here. In a rave review, the Nashville Scene wrote, "Nothing about this country cooking is copied or cliché. It's simply true, it resonates, and it just makes sense."

ARRESTED now in Colorado...but what a story and week for 2 brothers and their stripper sister!

Text messages and tweets by three fugitive siblings who shot at a police officer and robbed a bank reveal a dangerous mindset and a firm bond between the siblings, "We've certainly seen their mindset when... They shot at a law enforcement officer outside of Tampa Bay, Fla., and when they fired inside that bank in Valdosta, Ga. But these additional texts and tweets have given us additional insight," FBI Special Agent Stephen Emmett told "Good Morning America" today. " We are concerned and feel that they are going to continue and cause problems to say the least for law enforcement." Ryan Dougherty, 21; his sister Lee Grace E. Dougherty, 29; and half-brother Dylan Dougherty Stanley, 26, have been on the lam since Aug. 2 when they shot at a police officer attempting to pull their white Subaru Impreza over for speeding.
