Rocky Top Recap

Welcome to the Rocky Top Recap, where we go through everything that happened in Tennessee athletics this week. Baseball We’ll start on the diamond with baseball where the Volunteers split a pair of games this week to bring them to 18-13 on the season. On Tuesday, they defeated in-state opponent Belmont 9-2 at Lindsey Nelson Stadium. Benito Santiago continued his good play for the team in that game, hitting a home run and finishing the day with two RBIs. Outfielder Brandon Trammell also finished with a pair of RBIs, both of his coming off of a double that gave the Vols their first lead of the game. Meanwhile, on Friday, the team’s series with No. 1 ranked Florida was supposed to start but was rained out. The series then started Saturday, and the Vols were defeated 22-6. Santiago hit a home run for the second consecutive game, but the top-ranked Gators were too much for the team to handle. Games two went to extra innings, but eventually, the Gators won 6-4. The Vols did manage to steal game three 6-4. Softball Staying on the diamond, the softball Lady Vols played a whopping five games this week. On Sunday and Monday, the team finished it's March 31 weekend series with No. 6 Georgia, and they lost both games at home 9-1 and 8-0, respectively. The Lady Vols were held to only five hits in Sunday’s game and four during Saturday’s. The team then rebounded with a 3-0 win at home against Tennessee State in which Caylan Arnold had a great day on the mound, striking out seven while only giving up one hit. To cap off the week, the Lady Vols began their weekend series at [...]

Blues Rocker Gary Clark Jr. at The Mill and Mine. Sun. Nov. 4 @ 8pm. Rescheduled.

For more information and tickets, visit The Mill and Mine's website. Gary Clark Jr. on Facebook; Gary Clark Jr. (GaryClarkJr) on Twitter Video for "Come Together" From Gary Clark Jr.'s official website: Ever since 2010, when Gary Clark Jr. wowed audiences with electrifying live sets everywhere from the Crossroads Festival to Hollywood’s historic Hotel Café, his modus operandi has remained crystal clear: “I listen to everything…so I want to play everything.” The revelation that is the Austin-born virtuoso guitarist, vocalist and songwriter finds him just as much an amalgamation of his myriad influences and inspirations. Anyone who gravitated towards Clark’s, 2011’s Bright Lights EP, heard both the evolution of rock and roll and a savior of blues. The following year’s full-length debut, Blak And Blu, illuminated Clark’s vast spectrum - “Please Come Home” is reminiscent of Smokey Robinson, while “Ain’t Messin’ Around” recalls Sly and the Family Stone. 2014’s double disc Gary Clark Jr–Liveprojected Clark into 3D by adding palpable dimension and transcendent power –– songs soared and drifted from the epic, psychedelic-blues of “When My Train Comes In” to his anthemic, hip-hop, rock-crunch calling card, “Bright Lights”, all the way down to the deep, dark, muddy water of “When The Sun Goes Down”. There are a handful of folks who have informed for the mélange of genres and styles, which comprise the genius of Clark. One is Michael Jackson. It was on Denver stop of MJ’s Bad Tour where a four-year-old Gary’s life was altered after witnessing The King of Pop. By the sixth grade, Clark would own his first set of strings (Ibanez RX20). As a teen, Clark began making a local name by jamming with adult musicians around nearby clubs. He struck a balance by [...]
