    Here's a link. The voice is even similar.

    Yeah, I loved Randy Travis, and I'm not even much of a country fan...

    Here's a link to an article from our local newspaper today about Garner getting ready for a possible hometown visit for Scotty. I love Garner! It's a nice town full of nice people.

    Since you didn't include the link, I tried to find it for you, but searches of Garner NC newspaper and Garner NC news didn't provide any information that I could find.

    It was in the Raleigh paper, the News and Oberserver. I did did a quick search, but couldn't find that particular article. However, here is a link to another article in the N&O, so if you are interested, maybe you can do some looking.

    Boy, I am really losin' it! Promising you a link and then not even putting it in. The Garner, NC paper is a weekly. Garner is a bedroom community south of and closely linked to Raleigh, which is where I live, even though (are you ready?) I work in Garner...

    So the article comes from the Raleigh News & Observer.

    ...Watkins said he has been in touch with officials in Conway, Ark., hometown of Kris Allen, a previous "American Idol" winner. They gave good tips about how to pull off a celebration on such short notice, he said.

    Perhaps their best advice: "'Tell the police their biggest problem will be 11-year-old girls,'" Watkins said.

    I love the last quote in the article...so true.

    I hope that you get to participate in all the festivities! I remember very well the same situation here when one of my former students was in the same position. It will make you think differently about the show, and you will realize how very confined, yet sheltered, the kids are. It flies by in mere minutes so be sure not to blink too many times!!

    I've been thinking maybe I should go to one of the Scotty events, like the concert at Lake Benson Park -- but I live in Raleigh, 20 miles from Garner, and huge crowds are not my thing at all.

    I've never met Scotty ot his family -- my closest connection is that I know a few folks who do know them, and they say they are really nice, solid, involved Garner citizens. I may settle for watching the coverage on local TV, and posting links from wral.com here.

    Yes, it does make a difference when the contestants are from your area. I was VERY excited when Clay Aiken was in the finals and Fantasia. I live in Raleigh and do plan to attend the hometown celebration if Scotty is in the finals.

    IT's going to be so crowded and crazy, but I really want to go and show my support. I wish they would have it somewhere there is a lot of room so you can park and not be in traffic for many hours.

    I have been to Lake Benson Park when my school had its faculty picnic there. It's big, flat, and open, and there seemed to be lots of parking. But 30,000 people? I don't think that many people actually live in Garner...
