Rebecca Hargrove congratulates Harley-Davidson winner, Grady Thrower!

NASHVILLE - The weather won’t warm up soon enough for Sevierville’s Grady Thrower, who can’t wait to take a spin on his new Harley-Davidson 105th Anniversary Fat Boy Motorcycle.

“I love ‘em,” Grady says of the popular Harley-Davidson brand. “My wife is not so sure, though!”

Grady, who visited the Tennessee Lottery’s Nashville headquarters to claim his prize, won the recent Harley-Davidson Grand Prize Drawing by entering non-winning Harley-Davidson instant Lottery tickets into a series of second-chance drawings.

Grady’s new Harley-Davidson is just one example of the variety of prizes players have a chance to win by entering the Tennessee Lottery’s second-chance drawings. For more information, please visit

Best wishes and congratulations to Grady and his family!
