Kings of Leon confirm Music City Food and Wine Festival line-up



Kings Of Leon have announced details of this year's Music City Food and Wine Festival.

The Nashville festival was founded by the band and will take place between September 20-21 at Nashville's Walk of Fame park in the band's hometown. The second day of the event is named Harvest Night and will see perform alongside appearances by Charles Kelley of Lady Antebellum, Hunter Hayes, Jamey Johnson, Michael McDonald, Ashley Monroe, Phosphorescent and Brendan Benson.

Jessie Baylin, Billy Joe Shaver, Bobby Bare Sr., Bobby Bare Jr., Clare Bowen, the McCrary Sisters, Moon Taxi and the Watson Twins will also perform with all bands performing songs representative of Nashville and joined by backing band, the Long Players.

"Harvest Night is going to be a fun night of food, music, drinks and more drinks," says Kings' drummer Nathan Followill told Rolling Stone. "Expect a surprise or two, and come hungry and thirsty!"

The Music City Food and Wine Festival will also include food and cooking demonstrations from a number of leading figures in the culinary world.

Last month Kings of Leon were forced to cancel a number of live appearances following injuries sustained by Nathan Followill in a bus accident. Followill was hurt when a pedestrian "jumped in front" of their tourbus during their North American tour. He sustained broken ribs during the resulting emergency stop.
