             Nashville Music Medics Celebrate Tennessee Crossroads Broadcast


The Nashville Music Medics celebrated their epic broadcast on Tennessee Crossroads on November 16th with a Watch Party of Medics, their families and many of their friends, hosted by Bill and Robyn Munn. This wonderful opportunity was the culmination of four years of ups and downs, COVID, and a myriad of trials, and something we never would have considered when we started in January of 2019.  There were smiles, tears, and an overall feeling of love for each other and what we have accomplished.


       Of course, there was no lack of food and     beverage to help keep the good times flowing, and being singers, well, you guessed it, a few songs were also sung. (Un)fortunately, no Dad Jokes were told, since everyone had already heard them. During the evening, our texts were buzzing, and our emails busy with congratulatory wishes of how much our friends enjoyed the show. 

And then there is the “thanks” that must be given to our wonderful friend and the person that made this all possible for us, Miranda Cohen, The Tennessee Crossroads producer. You and your TEAM made us look great and so very proud of what we so love. Since Miranda was unable to join us, she asked for pictures of the party be shared with her. Pictures she gets !! We’ll be sure to send along our compilation for posting and media pages.


Below is a short list of some of the best wishes greetings that were sent our way:

Good individual interviews, great singing, good video and audio recording, but especially the purposes of the Music Medics were emphasized and communicated well. (Too bad Joes intro had yall as doctors.)
Good segment Doc

Dr. Stan Peppenhorst -

I caught the TN Crossroads piece on you guys. Very cool.

Keep spreading your joy and kindness/
