Jennifer was given a country superstar award on a CBS program in Las Vegas along with Reba, Judds, Carrie Underwood, etc.. Aside from her singing, there was also a several minute video piece on Douglas, her hometown, including a lot of Douglas scenes and interviews with former teachers.(This filming must have been done a few weeks ago when it was reported her partner, Christian, was in Douglas filming some locations here.) She did a very good job on the program!

It was. Brad Riner sent out an email telling that he and John O'Brien were interviewed by Nettles' partner and that it would show last night.

Jennifer was not talented but she has always set goals and was smart in achieving them. When 4-H Club last year was in danger of being cut by the legislature, she went and spoke about what 4-H and Coffee County had meant to her. It was very, very touching.

Jennifer claims Douglas, Douglas doesn't seem to claim her. No other town in America would pass up the opportunity to claim one of it's own celebrities. Where's the Home of Jennifer Nettles signs?

We proudly proclaimed Douglas as the Home of Larry Hinson and Joel Parrish on billboards in years past, why are we holding the love for this young lady? Is a Country Music singing sensation not as highly reguarded as a Golf Pro or a Football star?

Jennifer, has worked hard to get to where she is now.Yes I do think a sign on the north , south, east , west enterance to Fouglas should be put up.But only if Jennifer aproves of the signs. We as Coffee County Citizens should let Jennifer know that we are proud of her.

I second that motion!! Jennifer is a outstanding singer and song writer. I've seen her on tv several times and she has always said she was from Douglas.And if you look on her fan website she says she is from Douglas and is very fond of her memories here.

She is wothout a doubt the most famous person from Coffee County this millineum. She has a career in the music business that may be 15 years in the making if not more. Keep up the good work!

I've never seen any of those signs but I am opposed to ANY Jennifer Nettles sign going up. Its corny, cheap and a little embarrassing. I am so sick of this BS Celebrity worship. Douglas has more to offer then just being the once upon a time home of a Country singer.

She doesnt need to know your proud of her, she has a big loving family that can handle that. Coffee County should remain the way it is, we don't need any goofy signs put up everywhere.

Do you think she would come to Douglas to do a concert? Since she loves where she was born and not charge so much. Do I think she owes douglas? No, but you say we need billboards to claim her.So why do you think douglas needs to claim her if she don't try to do nothing for douglas like a concert to benefit something that is needed for douglas. She could come do a concert and not charge douglas but charge her fans ten dollars for adult and five dollars for kids and donate the money to something like schools for food or computers ext.... Anyways if she loved where she was born so much than she would come and show it! Yes, she is a great singer and a great person. And I know she is busy but when she comes down to see her family than I think it would be a great time to do something for her fans here in douglas. And I bet there will be a lot of fans there. Maybe one day she will do it and we would have more thangs to say bout her and she would be welcome by douglas. I would love to take my family to her concert when she has it in douglas. And it can't be in a bar or club here cause there will be underage people there.
Also do yall think she would be a good
roemodol for our kids? There would be kids here that would love to be like her and would set better goals.

Anyways I did not point finger nor did I take a side I just thought maybe this could be the reason why douglas is like it is!

They were huge billboards, either you were too young to remember or planted roots here after the fact, proclaiming Douglas home to Joel Parrish and to Larry Hinson.
