The T.J. Martell Foundation’s 16th Annual Nashville Best Cellars Dinner took place last night (April 27) at Nashville’s City Winery.

Dierks Bentley, Brett Eldredge, Jana Kramer, Steve Cropper and Kix Brooks were among attendees celebrating a night of exclusive wine and food pairings to benefit life-saving cancer research at the Frances Williams Preston Labs at the Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center. The event pairs “Best Sellers” (chart-topping artists) and “Best Cellars” (top wine collectors) who shared rare wines from their collections with guests at their tables.

The Best Cellars Dinner was created by Nashville wine enthusiast and music executive Billy Ray Hearn in 1999. Hearn, who passed away last month, was recognized during a special moment last night. Guests at the event enjoyed a gourmet dinner created by Chef Jonathan Waxman, founder and chef-owner of Adele’s in Nashville.
