NASHVILLE, TN, SEPT. 5, 2008- In a packed house at the ultra-hip bar and lounge Lot 7, the Tennessee Titans Cheerleaders unveiled their 2008 calendar during their second-annual Calendar Release Party and Swimsuit Fashion Show. For fans, it was their first opportunity to pick up the new calendar and meet all 31 cheerleaders on the squad.

The Titans Cheerleaders shot the calendar on location at The Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort® in Destin, Fla. this past May. Renowned photographer, Erick Anderson and his assistant Brad Hodge, worked tirelessly for four days, taking more than 4,000 photos of the 31 cheerleaders. Anderson, who has designed Grammy award winning album covers, designed the calendar with impeccable attention to detail.

Emceed by Nashville entertainer, Clyde “The Glyde” Avant, cheerleaders participated in real live fashion show, dawning the hippest and fashionable bathing suits on the runway amidst the cheers and flashing lights of the many fans, media and photographers. Titans Director of Cheerleading Stacie Kinder believes an event as such is just one of the many things that being a Titans Cheerleader entails.

“For some of our Cheerleaders, the calendar release party was the first time they really walked a runway and saw their pictures published publicly. It is an exciting moment and they realize the magnitude of being a part of the Tennessee Titans.”

After modeling the runway in bathing suits, the cheerleaders then dressed into sleek, individually tailored, trendy red dresses and took pictures, signed autographs while thanking the many people in attendance.

“We were thrilled to have so many of our fans, friends, and family come to our Calendar Release Party,” said Kinder. “We know Nashville loves their Titans, but it was heartwarming to realize that they also support the Cheerleaders and recognize the work that we do in supporting our organization.

“The calendar release party exceeded all my expectations. The Cheerleaders were gorgeous, the fans were excited and supportive, and the media coverage excellent. It was a perfect night.”
