Gary Allan, Luke Bryan, Eric Church, Sheryl Crow, Amy Grant, Dustin Lynch and Jonathan Cain from the band Journey are set to attend the 14th Annual Nashville Best Cellars Dinner on Monday, April 29 at the Bridge Building in Nashville. This exclusive wine and food event benefits the T.J. Martell Foundation and its funding of life-saving cancer research at the Frances Williams Preston Labs at the Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center.

The evening will pair “Best Sellers,” popular chart-topping artists with “Best Cellars,” some of the top wine collectors in the United States who will share rare wines from their collections with guests at their tables. Since the inaugural event created by Billy Ray Hearn in 1999, the dinner has raised more than $1.65 million.

This year’s wine hosts include Sam and Celeste Beall, co-chair Tom Black, Keith and Pam Browning, co-chair John Esposito and Chantel Esposito, co-chair Bill Hearn and Elise Loehr, Billy Ray and Nancy Hearn, Clint Higham and Joe Galante, Chris Johnson and Jeff Roberts, Eliza Kraft Olander, Keith and Deby Pitts, Bill Shea and Kip and Valerie Summers.

The gourmet four-course dinner will be created by Bob Waggoner, executive chef of Watermark and Sean Brock, executive chef of McCrady’s and Husk in Charleston and Husk in Nashville. Attendees may also choose to purchase separate admission to the previously invite-only Tom Black After Party held at the Bridge Building Rooftop Patio with entertainment by Brett Eldredge and Charlie Worsham.
