I had no idea that Bruce Hornsby was from Williamsburg.  I used to love (I guess I still love it) that Mandolin Rain song he sang.  It would have been cool if I had run into him when I used to live there.

Bruce Hornsby gone country? Well I'll be. We have a lot of celebrities with second homes here. I'm surprised there's not a company that produces "Maps to the Stars" here like there in L.A. Hmmmmmm.

Yvette, I love Hornsby and a lot of his music! I didn't know he was born there but what great trivia. I have a few of his CD's. I really like the old stuff better. Happy New Year!
