You see a lot of strange groups when you’re walking down Broadway in Nashville. Usually they’re wearing bachelorette sashes or cowboy hats and boots that they just bought after getting off the plane, and they’re hopping from bar to bar requesting “Wagon Wheel” as they drink $18 vodka sodas.
But this may be one of the strangest groups of people that I’ve ever seen together in Music City.
The founder of Jimmy John’s sandwich shop organized a birthday bash for his wife this past week. Held at The Twelve Thirty Club on lower Broadway, the party was headlined by the legendary Elton John – and not only was the owner of the restaurant, Justin Timberlake, there with his wife Jessica Biel, but so was Eric Church.
The guest list not only featured Church, but also Jake Owen, comedian Theo Von, Barstool Sports personality Caleb Pressley, and celebrity chef Emeril Lagasse.
Elton reportedly performed a twelve-song set, and with an estimated cost of $1 million to hire one of the biggest names in music for a private party, it seems Jimmy John spared no expense for his wife’s birthday.
It looked like an incredible event, but I still can’t get over the wide range of names on the guest list…
