Tuesday night, Slashfood headed down to Nashville to go behind the scenes at CMT's Artists of the Year celebration (airing Friday, December 3). The event, featuring a pull-out-the stops dinner, was filled with award-winning musicians, celebrities and athletes, and three James Beard award-winning chefs, all there to honor Taylor Swift, Carrie Underwood, Zac Brown Band, Lady Antebellum, and Jason Aldean.
We caught up with these A-listers on the red carpet as the evening kicked off. Sure, there were questions about their latest songs, but we're all about food, so we just had to ask, "What do you eat on tour?"
Chefs R.J. Cooper, John Currence and Michael Schwartz flew in to cook up a meal fit for any country king or queen. Check back tomorrow on Slashfood as we go behind-the-scenes in the kitchens as they prepared for the big meal.
