Welcome to the Barbara Mandrell International Airport (And the Mandrell Sisters)

That headline makes as about as much sense as renaming the Nashville airport, the “Oprah Wynfrey International Airport.

When a Nashville politician suggested that the airport change it’s name to that, I haven’t seen people get this upset in Nashville since a certain Mayor went on the Phil Donahue show and played his harmonica.  (Google and then you will laugh.)

But what should we name it if it was put up to vote? This got me thinking of all the absolutely insane and wonderful possibilities.  Enjoy!

    More political butt kissing. This is Nashville. Not surprising at all.
