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.

"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 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.

On Tuesday night, Nashville will shimmer like a country singer's wardrobe. Down in Music City, 20,000 fans will fill Bridgestone Arena to see, for the first time in NCAA basketball history, two unbeatens, Connecticut and Notre Dame, vie for the women's national championship. Meanwhile, 684 miles to the northeast, Tuesday night figures to be an unremarkable one in West Chester. The old college town's leafy residential streets will be slumbering.

An NHL source with knowledge of the situation said on Sunday night that Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren and his Nashville counterpart, David Poile, have talked "just once" since restricted free-agent Shea Weber signed a 14-year, $110 million contract with Philadelphia on Wednesday. That fuels speculation that Nashville is thinking about sending Weber, arguably the league best all-around defenseman, to the Flyers in a trade. If Nashville was going to match the offer, there would be no need for Poile to confer with Holmgren.

For the Flyers, the waiting game continues. From the time restricted free agent Shea Weber signed his 14-year, $110 million contract offer with the Flyers, Nashville had seven days to decide whether to keep him. On Friday, the Predators were still mulling over their decision. They can take until Wednesday at 11:30 p.m. For Nashville, the biggest question is whether it can afford the up-front money - $27 million in the first calendar year and $68 million over the first five years.

LAST WEDNESDAY, Paul Holmgren polished off his wooden bat and attempted to hit the Flyers' biggest home run since Eric Lindros. On Tuesday, Holmgren officially swung and missed — through no fault of his own. The Nashville Predators finally decided, after a few days of tense deliberation between their large ownership group, to swallow hard and match the 14-year, $110 million offer sheet for franchise cornerstone defenseman Shea Weber....

The Flyers again came back from the dead with a late goal, but it wasn't enough Thursday night. They salvaged a point but dropped a 4-3 shootout decision to Nashville at the percolating Wells Fargo Center. Nashville won it in the seventh round of the shootout on a goal by Roman Josi. The Predators had a 3-2 edge in the shootout, and twice the Flyers took the lead before Nashville beat goalie Steve Mason to keep its chances alive. The Predators scored on their final three shootout attempts after failing on their first four.

On one hand, the Flyers have shown amazing resiliency as they have won eight games - seven since Dec. 4 - with comebacks that have erased third-period deficits. On the other hand . . . They are living too much on the edge and need to play better early in games so that the late heroics aren't needed. "Sooner or later, you're not going to win every game in the third," Brayden Schenn said after the Flyers escaped with a dramatic 4-3 win in Buffalo on Tuesday, using Vinny Lecavalier's goal with 14.8 seconds left to end a two-game losing streak.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - When James Franklin's coaching stint at Vanderbilt began in December 2010, most fans hoped there would be at least incremental improvement in a program where five wins constituted a good season. If he could eventually make the Commodores competitive in America's toughest college football conference, the SEC, that would be a bonus. Now, with Franklin gone to Penn State, any objective look at his three seasons would conclude he accomplished that task. A 24-15 record, back-to-back 9-4 seasons in the final 2 years, and consecutive bowl wins (three straight bowl trips overall)

ST. PAUL, Minn. - As the calendar turned to December and the temperature has dipped, the only thing getting warmer is the heat being turned up on the Flyers. It is no stretch to say that the next 38 days may well define their season. At the very least, the next month or so will give a true glimpse into whether the Flyers are contenders for a playoff spot or just pretenders. Beginning tonight, the Flyers will play 18 games in 38 days: 13 road games; nine games against Western Conference teams who are a combined 56-26-10 against the East; five divisional games; and three games on the end of back-to-back nights.

The Rev. Will Campbell, 88, a minister who drew acclaim for his involvement in the civil rights movement, died Monday in Nashville from complications after a stroke he had about two years ago. Mr. Campbell was the Nashville representative of a pro-integration operation called the National Council of Churches. Because he was white, he was allowed entry into rooms unapproachable by some of those at the forefront of the movement. "We knew there was somebody who cared and was concerned about what happened to us," Bernard Lafayette, a civil rights leader in Nashville and close friend of Mr. Campbell's, told the Tennessean newspaper.
