Rondal Richardson and I had the pleasure to speak with Scott Hamilton for the NowPlayingNashville November Artist Spotlight. We had a chance to talk to him during The Big Payback and it was truly an honor to hear the story behind the Scott Hamilton CARES Foundation. He has an incredible career as a figure skater, performer, best-selling author, sports commentator, speaker and founder of his own foundation.
To celebrate Scott’s Gold Medal year win, he is giving away 84 tickets through NowPlayingNashville.com. You can enter to win tickets to the Scott Hamilton & Friends On Ice benefit on Sunday, November 18 at Bridgestone Arena. Winners will be selected at random on Thursday, November 15 at 5pm. THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW OVER!
Listen to our full interview with Scott to discuss his passion, family and being a 4-time cancer survivor.
