Buddy Jewell, Bridgette Tatum, J. Karen Thomas and Montrel Darrett To Headline Hollywood Meets Nashville Grammy Viewing Party And Benefit Gala

The 2nd annual Hollywood Meets Nashville Grammy Viewing Party and Benefit Gala will feature a diverse array of musical talent, including “Nashville Star” winner Buddy Jewell, ABC “Nashville’s” J. Karen Thomas, award winning gospel artist, Montrel Darrett and country rocker, Bridgette Tatum.


Buddy Jewell quickly rose to fame in 2003 as the first winner of USA Network’s “Nashville Star.” His hits include “Help Pour Out the Rain (Lacey’s Song)” and “Sweet Southern Comfort.” He is a diverse and charismatic performer, with an extensive fan base which extends well beyond the country and gospel genres. From children to NFL players, Buddy appeals to music fans of all ages, from all walks of life. His recent video “Reason to Read” (with Patty Loveless) has even become a success with the youngsters who watch PBS’ award winning educational show, “Between the Lions.”

J. Karen Thomas currently stars as Audrey Carlisle on the hit ABC series, “Nashville.” A dedicated actress, she also enjoyed a stint on “Drop Dead Diva” and recently completed the Ashley Judd vehicle, “Identical” and “Boulevard” with Robin Williams.  J. Karen has a passion for music and her new CD, “Love Just Happens” is a romantic collage of jazz, pop, standards and spiritual originals.

Montrel Darrett began singing as a child, wrote his first song at four, and formed his first group, the True Notes, with his siblings as a teenager. Montrel later joined the award winning gospel group Commissioned, and performed and recorded with them for a number of years. Montrel left the group to pursue a solo career in 1999.  He also writes and produces for other gospel acts including Virtue, Sharon Riley, and Faith Chorale.

Bridgette Tatum is no stranger to the top of the country charts.  She wrote the 2009 Jason Aldean hit, “She’s Country”.  Her song, “Loud” was recorded by Big & Rich and was the theme music for John Rich’s reality show, “Gone Country.” Bridgette hit the charts herself with “I Like My Cowboys Dirty” and “Hillbilly Rockstar” and recently toured with Heidi Neufield.

Other event activities include fashion runways featuring Elisabeth Donaldson of Monarch Clothing and Detreia Burr of D Michelle Designs.

Party with a purpose!


Hollywood Meets Nashville was founded to give the creative community of Nashville an outlet to raise money for deserving charities while having a great time.   We tap into the hottest events in town, such as the CMA Music Festival, the Country Music Awards, Grammy, Emmy and Academy Awards to create cool local events that are not only fun to attend, but make a positive impact on the community.

Hollywood Meets Nashville is a call to action for an array of participants who give back in numerous ways – volunteering their time and energy, donating money or a combination of both.  So far, the community has banded together to raise funds for St. Jude Hospital, Second Harvest Food Bank, Prevent Child Abuse Tennessee, The Second Chance Foundation and Haiti Relief Fund.

The staff, volunteers and supporters of Hollywood Meets Nashville are dedicated to giving back and paying it forward.  We are currently at work on the HMN Grammy Viewing Party and Benefit Gala and looking forward to partying for another good cause!

Call to Action!

Even though we still have several weeks before the event, we want to put out a call to action as we work toward the Hollywood Meets Nashville Grammy Night Viewing Party and Benefit Gala.  Our event committee is asking for volunteers to help us pull off what we hope will become the event of the season.  We are looking for assistance in a number of areas, including in-kind sponsorship (swag bags), restaurant coordination, audio/visual and on-site production.

The event will be featuring a Taste of Nashville style food sampling with numerous restaurants donating food at stations that they will be manning and promoting.  Volunteers will be needed in the coordination of these restaurant stations.

We would like volunteer assistance in the procuring and coordinating of items for our celebrity gift bags and silent auction items.

We need people who want to assist on the day of the event, people experienced with audio/video equipment, who can help make the broadcast experience, the best ever for our guests.

If you would like to be a part of this incredible event, please send an e-mail to and let us know which sub-committee you would like to volunteer for – restaurant coordination, celebrity gift bags, audio/visual or on-site production assistance.
