In 2004, Gibson Guitars started the Nashville GuitarTown project which placed decorated Guitar statues (such as this one) around town. Then in 2006, the guitars were auctioned off for charity.
The Carter Family guitar is named "They Started it!" which is written down the neck. Other messages are "Keep on the Sunny Side" and "You owe us Big!" The Artist was Sheila Bartlett and was originally placed in 2004 in front of the CMT building on Commerce St. Now, it appears along Music Row in front of Curb records next to the Johnny Cash guitar.
