    Press Conference on December 16 at Bridgestone

    Garth will be doing a press conference on Thursday (from http://www.nashville.com/music/2010/12/garth-brooks-gearing-up-for-flood-relief-concerts/).

    Garth Brooks will hold a press conference on Thursday, December 16 at 3 PM local time at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena where he will soon play nine concerts for flood relief.
    I don't know if this will be open to the public, but if anyone is in the area, you might want to check it out.

    It's so weird I can't find mention of it anywhere else. I can't believe the local news stations aren't covering it.

    weatermanfsu reported on twitter that he made it to the press conference and that he got to ask Garth a question about what it means to him with us coming from so far away. He says it means soooo much and he said to please tell all at Planet Garth thanks so much!

    I was there!

    I was there! They originally were not going to let me and my wife in since they wanted press credentials. But I told them I was from Planet Garth and they were like hold on. A woman went and asked Garth's staff and they said they love Planet Garth and let us in! We have a lot of video and pics, but I will have to upload those tonight after the show, since my wife is dragging me around.... so sorry for the delay.

    I did manage to ask him a question about what it means to see our roll call listeing people from so far away coming all the way for this.... he said it was awesome on many fronts, as a performer he was humbled, and as someone who is trying to raise money for this town to come back, he was over joyed. I will post more later, but I can not express my excitement, actually getting to talk to him and converse with him. It hard not to just bust out in tears of joy at a supr cool moment in my life!

    More coming, with video and pics!

    Done...thanks for the links.

    I couldn't get the second link to work, but I went to the wkrn.com website and did a search and came up with another link that might be the same thing you originally saw - http://www.wkrn.com/Global/story.asp?S=13683779

    OK... working on getting things posted as the 10 PM show just ended.... Here is the link for the first part of the press conference. I ask my question at about the 6:20 mark. I need to get some rest, I am exhausted about leaving the house 22 hours ago to get here, and have not had any rest since. I am going to hit the sack and my wife has agreed to drive when we leave tomorrow I can post everything while she drives (thanks to pdanet and android!)
