During the announcement made Monday, the hosts gave a clue as to where they were headed by saying, “The Today Show makes it’s journey south to a city steeped in history, with chicken that will burn your mouth; it’s got songs and beer and mystery. We don’t know where to go first but we’ll drink the whiskey straight, from a Grecian temple to a famous church, this city sure sounds great.”
Over the weekend, Gifford was presented with a Lifetime Achievement Award from The Nashville Pops Orchestra in recognition of her accomplishments with a focus on the difference she has made in the lives of others and making the world a better place.
A devoted humanitarian, Gifford lends support to numerous children’s organizations including Childhelp and the Association to Benefit Children, which spawned Cassidy’s Place and Cody House, named after her two children.
Gifford starred in a Christmas Hallmark movie, “Godwink Christmas” which debuted on Sunday evening. Gifford also wrapped as principal photography on Then Came You, a film she has written, produced and starred in alongside Craig Ferguson. The inaugural gala event, An Evening With Kathie Lee Gifford, was held at the Musicians Hall of Fame and Museum on Saturday, Nov.16 benefitting The Bright Horizons Award.
