On the Road: Glenn heads to Nashville for the CMA’s

UPDATE: Episode is now ON DEMAND


Today, Glenn hits the road for the CMAs and will be talking to some of country music’s biggest stars from Nashville! GBTV will bring you a behind-the-scenes tour of the ‘Home of Country Music.’ It’s a live celebration of everything country. Don’t miss tonight’s special broadcast live at 5 pm ET only on GBTV

It’s been an early morning for the GBTV crew down in Nashville (this writer’s hometown). The trucks arrived late last night/early this morning in downtown:

The production crews will be working out of the mobile controle room

Eric, VP of TV Operations, was out this morning touring downtown Nashville. Check out some of his pictures

Guitars like this are all over Nashville commemorating different aspects of the town’s culture and heritage. This one celebrates country music and honky-tonk’s:

      Susan — could you imagine this happening…

      Obama walks into the place for a BBQ sandwich, and hears a voice going “Mr President, come and join me over here, will you…we can chat about so many things…” The person inviting him over is none other than Glenn…

      And behind Obama comes Soros saying to him (in a Godfather type of voice) “Obama, what have I told you so many times about these meeting sights….dear, dear Obama, I treated you so well…I wonder how Biden might like the White House…so long as he does not paint it red with yellow ducks on the walls…”

          scary and, right, very pausible! why can’t anyone have guts and stand up to Soros the spooky dude from star wars,emperor..looks just like him. Why can’t any Politician Stand up for God! well, Michelle Bachman probably would. we need her to clean up the White-house! Why is there such a media bias for woman, conservative women! God Will Bless America when America Blesses God..

            Michelle is smart,and Santorum would stand up for God. Little people know of Ricks humanitarian deeds..he’s never wanred alcolades…he a very spiritual guy,I’ve followed him for years.I’m impressed w/him. He got caught up in the fervor*Anything* but Bush,he got a bum deal

            I. think gingrich will win the debate w/ BHO,even if he’s given a telepromter…smiles. Would love Gingrich/cain team!
            Santorum…has always been consistant conservative/Christian. But I don’t think he’ll get nomination-place him somewhere. Or Gingrich/Santorum.

    On the road again…

    Heading out from east to west…
    Looking for my fishing vest…

    Left my keys in the car…
    Loved the look up there with the stars….

    On the road again…

    Looking forward to being with my friends…
    And once there again….

    Look out for the BBQ and the Fish…

    Well I took the chance and went downtown forgetting it was also CMA week. I saw the trucks, and the bazillion people and the barricades, and turned around and came home. :( Maybe next time.

    I hate country music. Southern folk are o.k., but I despise poppy music.

    I am not a racist, but the white girls have been going after black athletes on college campuses since the 80’s. I worked around all the athletes, and saw the “new” social thing going on with my own eyes.

    How long are you staying?  I will arrive in Nashville on Nov. 11 thru 14 for my grand daughters Baptism.  If I ever ran into you on the street, I think that I would faint!   I truly miss you on TV. Priscilla Burden, Sarasota, Florida.
