      Danielle and Drew -

      Wanted to check to make sure you were aware of the Chilton / Big Star event in Nashville tonight...
      If your crew cannot make it to Nashville, I can check with people there to see if the event is to be video taped and see about getting that coverage made available to your efforts...

      Just let me know at
