This year’s Awards focused not only on the winners of the awards but on survivors, as well. Taped in front of a live studio audience at Nashville’s Schermerhorn Symphony Center, the evening’s show was tied “with pink ribbon” to the Tennessee Breast Cancer Coalition (complete with pink carpet arrivals, a presentation by Ultimate World Fight Champion Rich Franklin and a place of honor on stage for the retinue of 136 breast cancer survivors). The show also paid tribute to Ground Zero heroes with performances by Lee Greenwood of “God Bless The USA” and Chuck Day’s self-penned “I’ll Stand Up And Say So.”
