Mrs. TN and I on the first night of competition!

WOW! That is the best word that could describe this weekend for me, if you do not know this weekend I was asked to judge the Miss America Teen Pageant and what a honor that is in its self! Although I have had the opportunity to judge many pageants this one especially was so difficult! The quality of the young ladies from every state were just simply amazing. It was so difficult to find the right girl for the job of Miss Jr Teen America and Miss America Teen that the judges ourself were in question of who was going to win! I am so happy to announce that our new Miss Jr Teen America and Miss America Teen are already on the job and ready to promote their platforms which both happen to be bullying as well as the Miss America Teen Program. I feel blessed and honored to have met all of the young ladies this past weekend and host them here in Nashville, TN!

It is great to have so many beautiful, talented, and caring young woman in my city and of course as Miss Music City I was so excited to show everyone around! If you would like to know more about this wonderful program or watch the competition LIVE from last night please follow the link and it will take you right to it, you may also see me on the Red Carpet!

Music City Bowl

Over the Holidays it was great to be in Music City for the wonderful Music City Bowl! This year the University of North Carolina and University of Tennessee were chosen to face one another at LP Field right downtown Nashville! I am so glad that the Music City Bowl invited me, Miss Music City to be involved with some of the activities! My first appearance was at The Bluebird Cafe where I was able to meet all of the coaches wives from both UNC and UT. All of us ladies enjoyed a wonderful lunch provided by The Bluebird as well as special entertainment from three of Nashville's finest songwriters!

As all of you know you can't have a great football game without a wonderful marching band and well we didn't just have one at the Battle of the Bands we had two! The crowd traveled downtown Nashville for some awesome music and fun plus some time in the rain. The country group Little Texas kicked off the show and guess who got to introduce them, yep you are right your very own Miss Music City! UNC and UT fans crowded around the stage and clearly took advantage of this wonderful opportunity to cheer on their football team, attend a great concert and listen to their favorite college marching band all right in the streets of downtown Music City! UNC and UT battled back and forth to see which band the crowd loved more and although the winner was not announced I think TN took home the win as far as the band goes. I had an awesome time hanging out with the fans and meeting all sorts of people, and I even was on Nashville's very own Channel 2!

It is such an honor to represent such an amazing community that no matter what stands behind one another! Thank you to all who attended the Music City Bowl, its hard to think that only 6 months ago where we all stood on that stage was completely under water! I can not wait to see what all 2011 brings to me good or bad each are opportunities that I am willing and able to take to become the best woman I can be.

Wishing you and your family the BEST year ever in 2011!

Much Love,
