Well, this one's gonna be a stretch....
Today, in celebration of Presidents Day here in the U.S., I am featuring the one and only... Matthew Sweet. Yes, THAT Matthew Sweet. "Girlfriend" Matthew Sweet. The oh-where-have-you-gone-we-hardly-knew-ye Matthew-Sweet.
Why on Presidents Day, you probably can't even be bothered to ask? Well, it just so happens that Mr. Sweet hails from Nebraska.
LINCOLN, Nebraska, to be exact.
And there you have it.
