Hello out there any readers who make it to this page. My name is Shannon - also known as Bloggin' Momma, Queen Bee, Gabbin' Bitch, or whatever else people can think up to call me. Trust me, there have been some colorful names thrown my way over the years.
I'm a proud mama of two - a son, 14, and a daughter, 16 - and a wife of 20 years to one. Yes, I've been married for 20+ years and no I can't give you any marriage advice. Trust me, I have no idea how we've made it this long. Marriage is a crapshoot, sometimes you win and sometimes you lose, and sometimes you just get extremely lucky all the way around. And that you can quote me on that.
So it may surprise some of you but I don't actually live in Nashville and instead live in Idaho west of Boise on the Idaho-Oregon border. I'm a big celebrity junkie and an even bigger country music fan and am pretty much the queen of completely useless celebrity trivia. I started NashvilleGab back in 2008 on a whim because I couldn't find any good country music gossip and news that was actually fun to read. I figured if I was looking for something different, so were others, and boy was I right. Six years later and I'm still going strong and growing all the time.
In terms of Alexa score, NashvilleGab is pretty much the top independent country music blog out there. Kind of like my long-lasting marriage, though, I'm not exactly sure how that happened. Must be my charming personality. :0) Yeah, my Facebook likes and Twitter follower numbers aren't as impressive as some of the other blogs, but I don't advertise and I don't purchase followers, so what you see is 100% real fans who have followed me because they value what I have to say. That or they were drunk one night and followed me because they wanted to yell at me about something I said about Jason Aldean or Taylor Swift. And that's ok.
Now I do deal in gossip, but it's meant to be fun and I'm not here to ruin anyone's day or life. I'm snarky but harmless and only share the stories I find entertaining and interesting. That said, the news I share isn't for everyone and I understand that. I respect your right to complain in the comment section, but be aware that I quite often gripe right back and am not afraid to stand my ground. If you're okay with my opinion then I'm okay with yours. I value all comments and don't delete any unless they are (1) strictly advertising another site; (2) they serve little or no purpose other than to be mean and abusive; (3) they contain personal information; (4) they are spam.
All that said, I'm a human being and do make mistakes. If you come across something on the site that is wrong or I've accidentally used your picture or something, just email me and let me know at Shannon@NashvilleGab.com.
