Kings of Leon Rockers Kings Of Leon are set to indulge their love of a good meal by hosting a food festival in their hometown of Nashville, Tennessee next month (Sep13).

Bandmembers Caleb and Nathan Followill have teamed up with chef Jonathan Waxman to co-host the Music City Eats festival, which will showcase some of the city's top chefs while bands perform live music.

The weekend event will also feature the Petty Fest Nashville, an all-star celebration of the music of Tom Petty, hosted by Kings Of Leon at Nashville's War Memorial Auditorium. They will perform alongside Emmylou Harris and Norah Jones.

Waxman says, "A few years ago, Caleb Followill quietly slipped into my restaurant Barbuto in New York, and we bonded over food and music, and throughout our many conversations, he kept asking why there wasn't a food and wine festival in his hometown of Nashville. We are inviting some truly amazing chefs from around the country, and most importantly, the best chefs and restaurants in Nashville. I am extremely excited by our shindig, and the Kings and I can't wait until September rolls around."

Music City Eats will take place from 21 to 22 September.
