I’m not good at making crowd estimations, but it looked like a pretty decent turn-out:

The purpose of the rally was to raise awareness and fuel outrage about the Gibson Guitar raid, a massive abuse of power that has become all too common in Obama’s gangster government. The TN Report has been covering the issue, and posting pictures of the rally on Twitter:
“I don’t think any other issue has captured the passions of tea partiers like this one has in the last year,” said Ben Cunningham, a blogger and spokesman for Tennessee Tax Revolt.
“There is near universal agreement among the tea party and conservative groups that the raids — the one that occurred in August and the one that occurred two years ago — were an overreach by the federal government. It was an abuse of power and authority,” said Cunningham.
The purpose of the “We Stand With Gibson” event is to say to the federal government, “Back off,” Cunningham said during a press conference Wednesday.
There were musical performances from Eric Lee Bedingfield, Grant Austin Taylor, Madison Rising and Rivoli Review.
