I’ve been waiting for quite a while for the release of The Blind Side, the new movie with Tim McGraw and Sandra Bullock. I first heard about it way back in April, and put a post up then. I heard more about it in August, and that was when we started seeing movie trailers and hearing exactly what this movie is about. You can click here to read the August 9 post.

We may have to wait another week to see the movie, but it has already made it’s big premier, and a lot of our favorite country artists were in the audience. The movie premier as on Thursday, Nov. 12, at the Regal Green Hills 16 cinema in Nashville.
Martina McBride, Julianne Hough, Barbara Mandrell, Kix Brooks, Lady Antebellum, Rodney Adkins, Randy Travis,Clay Walker, Rodney Adkins, Heidi Newfield, and Wynonna were among the country artists in attendance. Wynonna sent out a twitter while she was watching the movie and said “I hv alredy cried twice…This movie is wonderful so far. U hv2 go see it…”
In a report on CMT News, Tim said “We’ve always known Nashville was a great town. We love this town, we love the community and we love the people here. For this many friends – friends from our kids’ school, friends from our neighborhood, everyday friends of ours, and all the industry people who are our friends – to show up to support this is a pretty cool thing.”
This movie, I’m sure, will be one that I watch more than once. You can see move photos from the Nashville premier at the CMT News site, and if you haven’t see the trailer, or would like to see it again … Here you go.
I have a very busy day ahead of me. I’m about to head out to breakfast, then to about six stores in Johnson City, to pick up an item or two here and there, and then I’m headed to Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge for a little more shopping. Those are two great tourist towns, and as most of you know, Pigeon Forge is the home of Dollywood – which is getting totally decked out for the holiday season … but that’s another article altogether.
I’ll talk to you real soon. Appreciate the mail, and thanks to all of you who are now following Country’s Chatter on Facebook and Twitter.
