LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

A songwriter who has penned tunes performed by Nashville's top talent is trying to bring a little bit of Broadway to the Country Music capital, with the story of a female star battling drugs, family, and the industry itself.

If you thought New Kids on the Block were old hat, you're probably not of a certain age and gender, and the names Jordan Knight and Joey McIntyre don't mean a thing to you.

Being a concert promoter is not your usual summer job, but a group of young hip-hop fans near Boston decided to do just that and learned some business lessons along the way.

Plus, rapping with a Chemical Brother, David Amram, Pathos, Puff Daddy, and more.
