Shane Cullen (Travelbiz) attended a showing of MacGillivray Freeman's "America's Musical Journey" narrated by Morgan Freeman in the Lighthouse Cinema in Smithfield. The movie was produced in association with Brand USA and Air Canada, which were hosts along with Hertz and the Visit USA committee for the evening.

The movie trailed through some of the most iconic music cities of the United States, from New Orleans, Chicago, Motown's home Detroit, the "Empire of Music" New York City before heading south to Miami then on to Nashville, Elvis' Memphis before going west to Austin, LA and Seattle. The movie embodies Louis Armstrong's quote "Music is life itself. What would this world be without good music?".

Ross Hernandez (Tour America) won the generous prize of flights to almost anywhere in the USA thanks to Air Canada and with Hertz providing a week's car hire.
