Organizer, the Rev. Enoch Fuzz, has set the theme for the event as one of unity and self-empowerment, quoting the inaugural speech of President John F. Kennedy: "Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country."
Here is what the Memphis ABC-TV affiliate ran:
Nashville, TN - For the first time in history, Music City will host it's own Presidential Inaugural Ball.
Set for the night of January 20 at the Maxwell House Hotel, organizers said Music City's version will be the largest inaugural ball outside Washington DC.
The Reverend Enoch Fuzz came up with the idea and quickly sought the help of other religious leaders in the Nashville community, including Dr. Charles McGowan.
A broad array of musicians and celebrities will be in attendance including Gospel music legend Dr. Bobby Jones and bluegrass/country singers Sharon and Ricky Skaggs.
The ball will be held at the Maxwell House Hotel, beginning at 7:00 p.m., Tuesday, January 20.
Tickets are available online at www.volunteernashville.com.
Reverend Fuzz said the ball is intended to bring people of Nashville together, regardless of race, religion or politics.
