br /> Big Screen Entertainment Group (BSEG), Shatner's producing partner, revealed that the Boston Legal star received the full Gibson experience while in Nashville, taking a tour of the city on the Gibson Guitar Bus and attending dinner at the Nashville Gibson Entertainment Relations Showroom following the film's screening.

Karl Dean, Nashville's mayor, presented Shatner with the guitar, which was dubbed by BSEG as "a true one of a kind symbol of Nashville's musical legacy".

While Shatner is best known for his acting work, he has a strong relationship with the music industry and has released several albums.

His cover of Pulp's Common People, off 2004 album Has Been, helped to win him some acclaim and provides some of the basis for his new movie, which documents a Margo Sappington Ballet called Common People that is set to his music.
