"We started in New York at the end of last week," says American Idol's David Tackel. "We are here in Nashville, and it's really exciting to be in a music city like Nashville. It's really cool."
Also really cool, Kelly Sutton had a chance to be a part of the relay, taking the microphone from our studios to Music Row! After the radio station, the microphone found its way into the hands of fans and made stops on Broadway, the Grand Ole Opry and Tootsies. Watch for Nashville to be showcased as the relay ends in L.A. The mic will be presented to Ryan Seacrest to start the show March 13. There is a GPS tracker in the microphone, so if you want to keep track of it in real time, go to Fox17.com and look under FOX LINKS.
