PEOPLE'S CHOICE AWARD

AC Entertainment

This year, we asked online voters to include a write-in candidate—something or someone that didn't quite land in our regular categories. And the top vote-getter was none other than AC Entertainment, the hugely successful enterprise run by Ashley Capps (who was also, in fact, the founding publisher of Metro Pulse). Beyond simply bringing excellent entertainers to town, AC is also one of the city's true cultural benefactors, advancing our quality of life here beyond expectations. Not only has its management of the Bijou and Tennessee theaters made them nationally noted attractions, but its creation of events like Big Ears has also put the city itself on the map as a place of unexpected treasures. So, to AC we say: thanks! (C.T.)
