COLORADO GOES COUNTRY

The city of Denver, Colorado loves country music-and they're showing it with a mostly country lineup of artists entertaining at this weekend's NBA All-Star festivities. Tim McGraw will play in the NBA All-Star Celebrity Game this Friday, joining his duet partner, Nelly, as well as other artists. New artist Blaine Larsen will sing the national anthem at the 2005 NBA Got Milk? Rookie Challenge, also on Friday. And for the big game on Sunday-airing live on TNT at 9 p.m. Eastern-the NBA tapped Big & Rich and LeAnn Rimes to entertain during halftime.
