  • I said no smoking! *BANG*

    A Nashville musician died Saturday after being shot in the head at a downtown bar.

    Metro police identified the victim as Jerald Wayne Mills, 44, a member of the Wayne Mills Band.

    According to police, Mills was shot at about 5 a.m. during an argument at Pit and Barrel, which is located on 2nd Avenue South.


    Michael Scott, a friend who was with Mills and the group, tells Channel 4 News that Mills and Ferrell started arguing when Mills began to smoke in a non-smoking area.


    Scott says the group of friends attended the George Jones tribute concert Friday night and then went drinking at a couple of bars before going to Pit & Barrel. He says he can not imagine what could have caused Ferrell to shoot Mills.

    The shooter claims it was self-defense. I suspect that may not actually be the case, but I'm guessing we'll find out soon enough. These guys went out drinking after the George Jones benefit concert, which started mid-day and ran well into the night, so I suspect that the band members had been drinking for 12 hours or more. This shooting happened at 5:00 in the morning, and mandated closing time is 3:00.
    It's been ten years since that lonely day I left you
    In the morning rain, smoking gun in hand
    Ten lonely years but how my heart, it still remembers
    Pray for me, momma, I'm a gypsy now

    Smoking really will kill you.

      I've been tempted, but I've never actually done it.

Mildred released a statement on the 40th anniversary of the ruling in 2007: 'I am proud that Richard’s and my name is on a court case that can help reinforce the love, the commitment, the fairness, and the family that so many people, Black or white, young or old, gay or straight, seek in life. I support the freedom to marry for all. That’s what Loving, and loving, are all about.'." - Mildred Loving (Loving v. Virginia)
