Somewhere along the way she found time to sing a bit, too. Her band Gossip (which also includes Searcy native Nathan Howdeshell) made its major label debut with the Rick Rubin-produced “Music for Men.” Even with all the new juice, when Gossip came to Little Rock, Ditto and co. insisted on playing Vino’s, just as they did back when they were scruffy garage punks.
