Others who called in, tweeted or donated include MARTINA MCBRIDE, Police Chief RONAL SURPASS, Governor PHIL BREDESEN, Mayor KARL DEAN, STEVE HARVEY, CHARLIE DANIELS, KE$HA, ELLIOTT YAMIN, H-TOWN, RAHEEM, K MICHELLE, TENNESSEE Titans KEITH BULLOCK and CHRIS JOHNSON, YO GOTTI, LARRY GATLIN, NICK CARTER, KELLIE PICKLER, CHUCK WICKS, RODNEY ATKINS and JORDIN SPARKS.
