NASHVILLE, TN - Almost five years after her husband was murdered at a South Nashville sports bar, Nikki Goeser goes into detail about the tragedy on national TV.

She's become known as a gun right's advocate here in the midstate but tonight, there's more to her story.

We all know Nikki Goeser for strongly supporting gun rights here in Tennessee.
But you'll soon see details leading up to that fateful night in 2009 that claimed her husband's life and what she wants you to know about it.

Nikki Goeser and her late husband Ben had only been married a year before a man stalking her opened fire in a bar they were working in.

Security video appears to show the murderer pulling a handgun and then shooting Ben Goeser multiple times.

Nikki Goeser, a gun carry permit holder, was not allowed by state law to carry her firearm into Johnny's sports bar.

She's since been the face of gun rights here in Tennessee and credited with the passing of two bills, one allowing guns in establishments that serve alcohol.
Another bill allows guns locked in your personal vehicle while you're at work.

Goeser is also grateful to share her story to a broader audience with the release of a new book.

In an hour-long episode on Investigation Discovery, she shows a more personal side.

It's an emotional look into the Goeser's seemingly perfect life and the sudden tragedy that changed it all which she hopes many can learn from

The episode "Obsession: Dark Desires" airs tomorrow night on Investigation Discovery.

Ben Goeser's killer was convicted of second degree murder and is serving a 23 year sentence.
