NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Long ago, my mother told me about her former college roommate, who ate packets of butter. Whole packets. Not spread on bread, not in a series of nibbles, but all at once, like throwing back a piece of popcorn. I thought the tale was disgusting but also likely false, a story that grew legs over time. Until, that is, I ordered the Butter Tasting at Etch, a new restaurant in downtown Nashville. All at once, they arrived: malt vinegar butter, smoked Parmesan black pepper butter, ginger cashew butter - all made fresh in-house.

It was the first Saturday of the new year, and Doug Seegers was eating breakfast at a McDonald's in West Nashville before heading out to his steadiest gig - playing in front of the local Goodwill store. "Whether I'm playing a big show somewhere or whether I'm playing out on the street for little kids walking by, I get the same kind of joy," Seegers says over the phone. "I'm just looking to play my guitar and spread my music to whoever is around at the time. " Seegers, who plays Sunday at the Ardmore Music Hall, may still enjoy busking, but life certainly has changed over the last year for the 63-year-old country artist.
