About Music City Festival & BBQ Championship:
Established in 2008, the Music City Festival & BBQ Championship combines live music, great food and charitable giving and is held annually in downtown Nashville. Along with entertainment featuring headlining artists, the Music City Festival & BBQ Championship is also one of the few BBQ competitions in the United States sanctioned by both the Memphis BBQ Network and the Kansas City BBQ Society and therefore, has the biggest footprint of any current festival in Riverfront Park. Each and every year, the committee selects one or two charities of choice and supports them with a portion of proceeds from each festival. So far, the Music City Festival & BBQ Championship has donated over $28,000 to these selected charities.
The Ram Truck brand continues to establish its own identity and clearly define its customer. Ram increases the capabilities of its hardest-working trucks – the Ram 3500, 4500 and 5500 Chassis Cab trucks – and adds a new Ram Cargo Van, which expands Ram’s reach into the Class 1 segment.
The new 2013 Ram 1500 with best-in-class fuel economy and current model Ram 2500 / 3500 Heavy Duty pickups include a variety of safety, fuel efficiency and convenience features. Ram Truck has emerged as a full-size truck leader by investing substantially in new products, infusing them with great looks, refined interiors, durable engines and features that further enhance their capabilities.
Yelp's purpose is to connect people with great local business. Yelp has been changing the nature of how people share local knowledge and find out about what's going on in their city and beyond since 2005. Yelpers have written more than 27 million rich, local reviews, making Yelp the leading local guide for real word-of-mouth on everything from boutiques and mechanics to restaurants and dentists.
