Jason, you'll miss it if you're not going to be there before the end of June. This was part of the email that Karen sent in mid-May to update us on the final product: <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Arial">quote:</font><HR>Just a post to give you the final results of the billboard project. We have a total of 102 hearts bordering the billboard that will be located on Music Row from June 1st to June 30th. The radio spots will air between 8pm and midnight from June 12th until June 21st.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>There is someone who I believe lives in or near Nashville who is going to take pictures of the billboard for those of us who contributed. If anything is in the media, I am sure we'll hear about it.<P>Paula<BR>N

Pam Dolen<P>(Karen-<BR> <BR>We are truly sorry regarding the delay in posting the Garth & Sandy Brooks poster. We could not order the poster till we had art approval, which we received on June 1. The normal turn around time for the printer is about 8 days. I have talked with our contact there and she is going to overnight the poster today. That means that we will have the poster up tomorrow afternoon. I will have a miniature poster of the design next week. If you would like that, please let me know. I am also a big Garth Brooks fan. I went to his last concert here in Nashville. It was awesome!! When you get back from fan fair please let me know how to join the fan club. Listed below is the address to send the information. We are truly sorry for the delay. Call me if I can help you in anyway 615-228-5500.<BR> <BR>Thank you, Patty <BR> <BR> <BR>Patty Clements<BR>1993 Southerland Drive<BR>Nashville, TN 37207)<P> :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) <BR> <BR> N

Guess we weren't the only ones who had this idea!

In a play on the famous "Got milk?" campaign, the billboard says, "Got fans? Diamond Rio does! With love from the Diamond Rio Fan Club Members." The billboard can be seen on Nolensville Road in Nashville, just outside the State Fairgrounds.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P>PaulaN

Well i don't know if they got the idea from us, but i do know we have our Billboard in a real good place right across from the Country Music Hall Of Fame on Music Row! It is a prime billboard spot in Nashville!! There's it says is across from the fairgrounds and that could be almost anywhere since the fairgrounds are so large!! Our's is up until july 8th i think Karen Said!! :)N

Hi Everyone,
<br>
<br>Just got back from TN yesterday, went down to see the Billboard and to do some other things.
<br>
<br>The Billboard looks great!!!!!!!!!!!! Took us a while to find it, because we were not familiar with the streets, but it is in a good location on Music Row, they are doing some construction on the street and it is blocked off at the moment, but you can still see it. :)
<br>
<br>We also meet some PGers up at the Gates, i'm sorry I don't remember names, but we then ran into them at Planet Hollywood and just wanted to let them know, that we never saw Garth on Saturday when we went back up there.
<br>
<br>Robin
