In Nashville, it can be difficult to focus on anything but music, but this month the Kings of Leon, Nashville musicians themselves, are helping put the spotlight on the city's culinary and cocktail scene at the second annual Music City Food and Wine Festival.

The band, which is helping produce the festival, was forced to cancel tour dates in August so that its drummer, Nathan Followill, could recover from injuries sustained in an accident on their tour bus.

But the Kings (or at least most of them) will be in attendance Sept. 20 and 21 for the festival, organizers said in an email.

Fellow producers Ken Levitan and Andy Mendelsohn (the band's managers), C3 Presents (the company responsible for the Austin City Limits Music Festival and Lollapalooza) and Jonathan Waxman (executive chef of Barbuto in New York and Adele's in Nashville) have scheduled cooking demonstrations for the two-day event, along with panel discussions; wine, liquor and beer tastings; and a hefty dose of food cooked by 50 celebrity chefs and celebrated locals, like John Lasater of Nashville's Hattie B's Hot Chicken.

They will cook alongside famous faces like the singer Trisha Yearwood and the chef Michael Symon, who are to return for a second year; and with circuit regulars like Amanda Freitag (the executive chef at the Empire Diner in New York City), who is to help Caleb Followill, the Kings' vocalist, and Tandy Wilson of Nashville's City House restaurant, compile the perfect kitchen prep playlist.

Visitors can expect "a wide variety of the sounds that make Nashville Music City," according to a statement from Nathan Followill, who, with the rest of the band, has selected a lineup of local and regional musicians for a Harvest Night concert on Sept. 20.

Passes range from $150 to $500 for single- and multi-day admission and special events.
