[MUSIC] The one place that you're instantly gratified with the
music that you make is when you're playing it live
for people and you see instantly how it affects them.
And in turn, how it affects you. [MUSIC] People remember
the food and it's the most amazing thing in the
world to transform something into something enjoyable. My wines tend
to bring out the best and kind of what southern
cuisine that Chef Love is doing But they don't fight
with it at all. [MUSIC] Well, we're at union station
in downtown Nashville. And this is one of my favorite
buildings in Nashville. It's an old train station and it's
one of the most Beautiful pieces of architecture and art
in this library that you'll find not only in Nashville
but I think anywhere. It's always good for me to
be back in Tennessee. I've spent a ton of time
here. I went to school at the University of Tennessee.
Go Balls, by the way. But the town is lively.
Everywhere Hey, Hey. What's up fellows?>>As a performer, Tim McGraw
is by far the top of his game. He obviously
is a superstar amongst us for sure.>>What do you plan
tonight?>>I'm going to do it everywhere just because The story
of the song is the love of your life that
you can't get out of your head no matter where
you go. And essentially you can travel all over the
place. And for us, food is, we seek out great
places. Places to eat you know so everywhere sort of
it means what is says everywhere. So when we travel
to Italy theres a real groundedness from having Italian blood
and the food is just so fantastic we spent a
great time up there and we found a restaurant In
Portifino. [CROSSTALK] Yeah, yeah, it's called Batties with the Langosteins.
Yeah, the beautiful thing about Italy is that they have
all these sort of regional cuisines that are really delicious.
So if you move from one place to another, you
get incredibly different regional cuisine. But you've also got different
wines to go with different cuisines. Music actually changes the
way Wine taste, Tim McGraw's kind of music. It's got
really rich tones, he's got a lovely voice, and I
actually think that it's great red wine music. I think
the music and the meal are gonna mesh. And the
wine, of course, are just gonna mesh because of the
atmosphere. I'm hungry. Anyways, I thought I'd take you back
and show you the ingredients beforehand. Oh, I'd love to.
[CROSSTALK] Let's go check out some ingredients. Let's do it.
Okay. All right, let's go. [MUSIC] Two dishes here that
I think are the most intriguing, really. The [UNKNOWN], which
of course, for you, Yeah, yeah. And the rabbit. And
you know, these we just did the langostino end, we
split them, clean up and quickly grill them on the
[UNKNOWN] right over here, and it's the sweetest of the
sweet. And then the rabbit, which is the most intensive
preparation of all the stuff that I'm doing today, where
we take the whole rabbits, we split them in half,
and allow the rack to spread out And get [UNKNOWN]
and then we put a little- Unbelievable. [UNKNOWN] bacon around
it to hold it tight. And we're gonna put really
ice cold gewurztraminer. Yeah. And a rosé that's made from
zinfandel carrion and grenache with that. That'll just bring that
to life, and will really spark it right up. And
then hopefully, Tim, you'll play some songs that are good.
I'll try- I'm just saying. [LAUGH] Yeah, we're a little
worried about that. [UNKNOWN] half as good as [UNKNOWN]. [LAUGH]
Don't **** up my food, you know what I'm saying?
[MUSIC] Let's go, guys! Let's go, go! [MUSIC] [CROSSTALK] Country
music and steak. So what are we having here? Okay
this is New York strip steak This finale, red meat,
and then we drizzle a little chilled wine, I take
a little of that, a little fresh herbs, and some
fresh Italian olive oil. Fantastic. It's a definite Waffle House
dish, cuz you wanna put it all together. No, no.
No, I'm saying, you know- Ain't no Waffle House I
ever been to! [LAUGH] [MUSIC] Memories revolve around noodles, I
think. Everybody has great wine, and the great food, and
then the great music together. I mean I can't think
of three things that can go together so well to
make a great evening and to make a memory. [MUSIC]
Part of what I love about wine is that when
I smell certain wines it will put me in a
particular location in time and place and people. And the
same thing happens with food, same thing happens with people.
Unbelievably great. Nice combination. [INAUDIBLE] have great food, great people,
and great atmosphere. I'm not sure, We're gonna have a
tremendous party. Now that we've had the food and the
wine, we're about to have some killer music. Welcome to
the stage Tim McGraw! [MUSIC] In my heart I'll always
see you. Everywhere. [APPLAUSE] Thank you>> [APPLAUSE] [SOUND]
