Luke Bryan and Friends Help Best Cellars
Stars enjoy great wine and food for the T.J. Martell Foundation.
It was another of those unique "only in Nashville" nights in Music City as Luke Bryan, Gary Allan and other stars attended the 14th Annual Nashville Best Cellars Dinner to benefit the T.J. Martell Foundation, Monday (April 29), at the Bridge Building. Also pitching in for the event were Dustin Lynch, Sheryl Crow, Sarah Darling and a host of other stars.
The event paired "Best Sellers," the top names in music, with "Best Cellars," some of the most noted wine collectors in Nashville and across the country. Guests for the 14th annual dinner enjoyed a gourmet four-course meal created by executive chef Bob Waggoner of Nashville restaurant Watermark and celebrity chef Sean Brock of Charleston, S.C., restaurants McCrady's and Husk. The wine experts shared rare wines from their collections with the guests at their tables.
Funds raised from the dinner helped benefit the T.J. Martell Foundation, a leading organization for cancer and leukemia research. "They do great work," Dustin Lynch told Country Weekly as he arrived for the big evening. "I have been part of some other T.J. Martell events, but this is my first time for Best Cellars. I think this has got to be the biggest party I've ever been to."
Dustin added that he had recently toured a winery in California and learned a great deal about fine wine. "Getting to travel out to that part of the country and having the pros educate you is really nice," said Dustin, who's getting ready to hit the road with Keith Urban this summer.
Sarah Darling noted, "I think this is a fun way to give back to the community. The T.J. Martell Foundation does such incredible work."
