The Tennessean says
Nashville Storytellers is a series of live events that explore the importance of personal narrative as a means for connection – both to our city and the people in it. Our next Storytellers will focus on The Music City Miracle – one historic play, five perspectives.

One of the most memorable finishes in NFL playoff history happened in Nashville on Jan. 8, 2000. A lateral pass and a touchdown on a 75-yard kickoff return gave the Tennessee Titans the franchise’s first playoff win since 1991 – a 22-16 surprise over the visiting Buffalo Bills. Famously deemed the Music City Miracle, the play lives on in local and league-wide lore. We revisit the victory with stories from five people who were in the stadium on the day it happened.

FRANK WYCHECK: The passer — Then the Titans tight end, he threw the controversial lateral that led to the game-winning touchdown.
ALAN LOWRY: The architect — The Titans former Special Teams Coach designed the Home Run Throwback play that resulted in the “Music City Miracle.”
TERRI HEDGES: The fan — A season ticket holder since the day the Titans came to Nashville, Hedges stood in the stadium the day of the Music City Miracle praying for an extra miracle – one for her dying mother.
GEORGE WALKER: The photographer — On the field that day, he started to capture faces of defeat. Then a miracle happened behind his back.
MIKE KEITH: The radio play caller — The “Voice of the Titans,” he was the first to call the incredible win a “miracle.”
