Nashville (1975), Robert Altman's kaleidoscopic vision of American politics and pop music, is his masterpiece and one of the few films that actually involves its audience in the electoral and creative processes. This 24- character ensemble piece, itself an inspired bit of democracy in action, vaulted to screen stardom Lily Tomlin and her humanism, Keith Carradine and his forearms as well as Jeff Goldblum and his motorcycle. It's a movie that both shocks and reassures, most vividly at its violent ending when the ditsily watchable Barbara Harris invites the city of Nashville to sing "It Don't Worry Me" - an ironic anthem marking the twilight of the Nixon era. "Nashville" at Temple Cinematheque, the Screening Room, 1619 Walnut St., at 7 and 9:45 tonight and tomorrow.

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.

Nashville's defense has gotten offensive this season. The Flyers will be aware of that when the teams meet Thursday at the Bridgestone Arena. Led by Roman Josi (10 goals, 36 points) and Shea Weber (12 goals), the Predators' defensive corps tops the NHL with 124 points and 36 goals. Asked about the challenges the Predators (24-19-8) present, Flyers coach Dave Hakstol mentioned the "speed of their attack and the quickness of their transition game and how much their defensemen are involved with that.

"The smartest thing I ever did was move to Nashville; the next smartest thing was moving away from Nashville. " So said country singer Lynn Anderson, who began an engagement at Harrah's on Tuesday that continues through Sunday. She moved to Taos, N.M., several years ago and put her distinguished career on hold for a couple of years. "I'd been there a long time," she said of Nashville. "And with new people arriving all the time, after a while they start taking you for granted.

ABC'S GOING a little bit country this fall. On Wednesdays at 10, Connie Britton ("Friday Night Lights") will star in the drama "Nashville" as a country-music star whose career is beginning to flag and whose record label thinks the answer might be having her join forces with a younger singer (Hayden Panettiere, "Heroes"), who turns out to be a bit of a schemer. Callie Khouri ("Thelma & Louise") wrote the pilot, which was directed by documentarian R.J. Cutler ("The War Room"). In November, actual country- music star (and sitcom veteran)

Nashville-based Southern Land Co. has cancelled its request to demolish the 1855-vintage Rittenhouse Coffee Shop building at 1904 Sansom St. near Rittenhouse Square, as part of its plan for a mixed-use tower project. Southern Land attorney Neil Sklaroff said in a letter to the Philadelphia Historical Commission Monday that it was withdrawing its application to designate the coffee shop's preservation as a hardship. The company is still seeking clearance to demolish two other historically protected structures, the Warwick apartment building and the Oliver Bair funeral home, it said on Friday.

NASHVILLE IS a hidden gem among stops on the NHL tour, with inviting country-music sounds and neon-soaked spirits spilling out of the honky-tonks on Lower Broadway next to Bridgestone Arena. Inside, the Predators skate in front of one of the most unusual - and passionate - fan bases in hockey, which the Flyers will get a taste of tonight in their third trip to the Music City since 2005. For three seasons after July 1, 2009, though, Nashville became the city NHL players loathed to visit.

The Flyers have struck out with another marquee free agent - and this one hurt more than the others. Nashville announced Tuesday afternoon that it had matched the Flyers' 14-year, $110 million offer sheet to star defenseman Shea Weber, a restricted free agent. Small-market Nashville had toppled the big-market Flyers, leaving them empty-handed in their search to replace the injured Chris Pronger. Earlier in the day, two sources said the Predators had not been involved in trade talks with the Flyers since the 6-foot-4, 232-pound Weber signed the offer sheet last Wednesday.

OTTAWA - All-star defenseman Ryan Suter, a potential unrestricted free agent on July 1 who has drawn trade inquiries from the Flyers, said that if everything were equal, he would like to remain with Nashville. Suter, who has a $3.5 million cap hit this season, hinted that he would not sign during the season - opening the possibility of a trade before the Feb. 27 deadline - but added that he did not want to be traded. "Nashville is a great place to live and raise a family," he said Friday during an all-star media day interview.

It wasn't until Bonnie Bishop gave up on her dream that it came true. The Texas native had spent 12 years scuffling as an independent singer-songwriter without making much headway, even after having two of her songs recorded by Bonnie Raitt and another performed on the prime-time TV soap Nashville . It got to the point where she couldn't even afford Christmas presents for her family. So she retreated to her parents' home in the Lone Star State to regroup. "I couldn't keep doing it the way I was doing it," the 37-year-old says over the phone from Nashville.

Chris Stapleton is the Nashville overnight sensation who, naturally, has been working for most of this millennium to step out of the shadows and into the mainstream. The 38-year-old, cowboy-hat-wearing Kentuckian with the bushy beard and burly, luxuriously soulful voice was the surprise big winner at last fall's Country Music Association Awards, where he sang his signature, slow-burning version of the George Jones hit "Tennessee Whiskey" as a duet with his pal Justin Timberlake. That led to a Grammy album of the year nomination for Traveller , his 2015 solo debut album, which put Stapleton's name in lights after years of having his songs recorded by a wide range of artists, including Miranda Lambert, Luke Bryan, and Adele.

From the Downingtown High School West marching band to Nashville recording studios, it's been a trajectory of long odds - and long hours - for Liz Longley and Sarah Zimmermann. The Chester County natives met in the marching band as clarinet-playing sophomores, and spent their high school years singing and playing guitar at every gig they could book in the Philadelphia region. But both had bigger dreams after their 2006 graduation. And in March, just days apart, each released albums with Nashville record labels.
