GARTH DOES HIS 'BIT' IN TOOTHLESS AD

Got teeth? Garth Brooks is missing a few.

So are Vince Gill, Amy Grant, Martina McBride and Lorrie Morgan, in an advertising campaign that spoofs the popular "Got Milk?" campaign featuring celebrities wearing milk mustaches.

Instead, Brooks and other country and pop music stars will be missing their two front teeth, trying to boost ticket sales for the National Hockey League's Nashville Predators' franchise.

The marketing blitz will begin in January and promotes the sale of season tickets for the Predators' 1998-99 NHL season, the Nashville Banner reported Friday. The league's newest hockey club must sell 12,000 season tickets by March 31 to secure the franchise.

If the star-power works for milk advertising, it ought to work for hockey, too, promoters say.

"We need that kind of credibility and star power, because we don't have any stars yet," said Tom Ward, an executive vice president for the Predators.
