Nashville, Tenn. (November 19th, 2012)
– Country recording artist Lindsay Lawler will be on-hand to perform
her latest single (and the Capitol Christmas Tree’s 2012 anthem) Standing Tall
tonight at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena in a ceremony welcoming this
year’s Capitol Christmas Tree to Music City. Bridgestone Arena is just
one of the tree’s many whistle stops on its way from Meeker, Colorado to
the Capitol lawn in Washington D.C. The acoustic performance, which
begins at 6pm in the Nashville Visitor Information Center at Bridgestone, will also feature performances by Matt Stillwell, Diamond Rio, Marcus Hummon, and Chris Roberts.

Not only will the event provide a unique opportunity for the public to
view and take photos with the 73-foot Capitol Christmas Tree, but will
also include speeches from former U.S. Senator Ben Nighthorse Campbell,
driver of the truck hauling the tree, and President Chris Burruss of the
Truckload Carriers Association, sponsor of the tree’s Nashville visit,
as well as a visit from Santa and Mrs. Clause. Festivities begin at 4pm
and conclude 8pm.

This is the third time Colorado has provided the Capitol Christmas Tree,
whose ‘Celebrating Our Great Outdoors’ theme is depicted through more
than 5,000 ornaments handmade by Coloradoans.

Standing Tall was co-written by Chris Roberts and was also featured at
the cutting down of the tree in Meeker, Colorado on November 2nd, at
Dallas’s House of Blues whistle stop on November 15th, and will be
performed by Lawler at the tree lighting ceremony on the Capitol lawn
and the Congressional Reception in early December.
