We loved the Soap Nation event at the CMA fest for multiple reasons" First, it was in Nashville, which was a really appealing city. Second, it mixed up two things that we like: country music and daytime. Third, there were lots of sno-cones available. Fourth, we got to meet tons of fans of "All My Children," "One Life to Live" and "General Hospital." We've been watching these shows for years (thanks, Mom; thanks, VCR -- remember them?), so we're always interested in talking to other viewers -- to find out when they started watching, and what they're watching for.
Pam from Louisville, KY (she didn't know the Southern Belles; we asked), is a lifelong "All My Children" fan; she started watching with her mother during the summer and school breaks. She was on hand to witness the Divas of Daytime performance and got Bobbie Eakes's (Krystal, "All My Children") autograph. "I love Bobbie Eakes. She's such a good singer." But who should Krystal be with: David or Tad? "Tad! David's a snake. But he's cute."
Liz from Murfreesboro, TN, was there to see Bradford Anderson from "General Hospital." "I love Spinelli!" She got his autograph and a picture and declared Bradford "Sweeter than Grandma on Christmas."
