'NASHVILLE NOW' SALUTES AMERICA'S HIGHWAY HEROES WITH COUNTRY MUSIC STARS PAUL OVERSTREET AND JERRY REED

 NASHVILLE, Tenn., March 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Country music stars Paul Overstreet and Jerry Reed join in a special salute to the unsung heroes of the road on "Nashville Now," TNN: The Nashville Network's live talk/variety series, Friday, March 19. Ralph Emery hosts the 90-minute series telecast weeknights at 9 p.m. (repeats at 1 a.m.; all times eastern).
 The National Highway Hero Program, which is celebrating its tenth anniversary, was created by Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company to locate, honor and publicize heroic deeds of the country's professional truck drivers. Each year, after a nationwide search, the "National Highway Hero" is announced at the Daytona 500 in Daytona Beach, Fla.
 Emery will visit with all ten of Goodyear's "National Highway Heroes" as they talk about the dangerous and life-threatening actions which brought each the well-deserved title of "hero." The program's first national winner, Ronnie Stapleton of Beckley, W.Va., tore off the back door of a burning car with his bare hands to save the occupants, while last year Goodyear honored husband and wife driving team Connie Cooper and Patrick Fee of Cottonwood, Calif., who dodged high-speed interstate highway traffic to save a woman from certain death.
