Country artists are cleaning out their closets to benefit a public garden in downtown Nashville with the Country Music Blooms Online Auction.  Unless you visit TN anytime soon, you probably won't get a chance to enjoy the garden, BUT, you could be the owner of Kenny Chesney's autographed cowboy hat, or Miranda Lambert's cowgirl boots.  I'm letting you know early, so you can save up for the auction.  Bidding starts on November 25 (Black Friday).

The “Country Music Blooms Online Auction,” launches November 25 (Black Friday) through December 5 on eBay, and will feature country music celebrity owned items – straight from the celebrities’ closets.

Items include:

Kenny Chesney’s autographed personal trademark cowboy hat that he wore; A dress that LeAnn Rimes wore to the CMA Country Christmas Special; The dress that Sara Evans wore to the 2008 CMA Awards; and Miranda Lambert’s pair of autographed cowboy boots she bought for her first tour.

100% of the proceeds will go to raise awareness and funding for the Nashville Music Garden, a one-of-a-kind public garden in downtown Nashville that pays tribute to the artists, songs and industry leaders who have contributed to making Music City one of the most unique cities in the world. The Nashville Music Garden is sustained by a fund established through The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee, a 501c3 non-profit organization.
