Last night on the CMA awards, we saw a car being autographed by – probably everyone at the awards show. They said they are going to be giving that car to charity, and my guess is that it will be auctioned off, and no doubt bring in a truckload of money.
I don’t know where that car is going to be yet … but I do know where you can all bid on a guitar. The auction is to raise money for “Hear The Music Live,” an organization that makes it possible for foster kids to attend at least one live concert during their foster home stay.
The guitar is a custom painted Gibson J-200, and some of the signatures on the guitar belong to the following artists: Billy Ray Cyrus, Brad Paisley, Chris Young, Cowboy Troy, Danny Gokey, Darryl Worley, Faith Hill, Gloriana, Jake Owen, Jimmy Wayne, John Rich, Katie Armiger, Keith Urban, Kellie Pickler, Lady Antebellum, Mark Wills, Miley Cyrus, Pam Tillis, Rascal Flatts, Rodney Atkins, The Judds, Tim McGraw and Toby Keith.
The guitar was painted by renown artist, Mandy Lawson. The information about the auction reads as follows:
With your bid on this gorgeous guitar, you will be enhancing the life experiences of children in foster care and residential orphanages across the country. Let Them Hear the Music Live is a nonprofit agency founded in 2009 to give pre-teens and teens in residential treatment foster care group homes the opportunity to attend a concert in their local area. Over 90% of the children Let Them Hear the Music Live sends to concerts have never been to a live concert – making the experience very meaningful for them.
This brand new, Gibson J-200 has been hand-painted by Nashville artist, Mandy Lawson. It needs to be known that Mandy’s paintings and guitars have found homes with Grammy award winners, notable rock-n-rollers, Country legends, record labels, magazine owners, performing rights organizations, national print ads, and public and private collectors. Mandy has painted guitars for Country artists Brad Paisley, Keith Urban, Rascal Flatts, and George Strait, to name a few.

Here’s a clip from YouTube that will tell you a little more.
The last time I checked ebay, the bidding was up to $3,500. I believe that puts it a bit out of my price range. But if any of you would like an awesome Christmas present, there it is! To run over to ebay and place your bid, click here. And remember, that if you can afford it – but you don’t really want it – It would make a great Christmas present … for me!
That’s it for this morning. I have to head out of here. You guys enjoy your Thursday. I’ll talk to you real soon! And remember to write when you get a minute. Definitely love hearing from each of you!
