Victoria's Secret Model- Lily Aldridge & moi.

This weekend was the bomb!  Yes I just said that, because it was.  David and I were at Music City Eats, a new foodie festival that was a collaboration of The Kings of Leon drummer Nathan FollowellChef Tim Love and Jason Waxman.  Basically, there were lots of musicians & celebrity chefs making awesome little dishes, speaking on panels, doing book signings, mingling & walking around Public Square.  How very Nashville.  That part of the festival was two days, going on Saturday and Sunday.  Saturday night was a Tribute to Tom Petty (though Petty himself was not there) with various musicians (such as Nora Jones,  Cyle Barnes of The Weeks, Trisha Yearwood, Karen Elson, and hosts Kings of Leon) performing his songs.

Mingling with Victoria's Secret Super Star, Lily Aldridge (who is so sweet)
She is married to lead singer Caleb of KOL.  It was definitely a Kings of Leon family affair as their little babies and model wives/gfs were abound and out in full force.  Not to mention all of their cousins & 2nd cousins probably working the festival.  Too many KOL look-alikes makes my head spin.

Video clip curtisy of Allison McLeish, thanks lovely! 

I just happened to be chillin outside where the musicians were hanging on the street inbetween performances because apparently the backstage was too small.  Again with the whole KOL clan & various others- including lead vocalist from Lady Antebellum Charles Kelley.  He was actually pretty excited to take a pic with us- so nice!

 Chef Michael Symon's cooking demo later that afternoon.

 I witnessed first hand, festival goers offering to pay $300.00 for just one more DJ Mel song. 
Thx for the great beats that kept Public Square partying the whole weekend!
And sorry you got BBQ sauce on all your records DJ Mel!  I bet they were delicious. ;)
