What started as one-day “Gospel Brunch & Pig Roast” at Dee’s Country Cocktail Lounge in Madison,TN in October of 2022, ONE BIG LOVE has now turned into a 6 month long bi-monthly music & food concert series on Thursdays highlighting some of the most inspiring and upcoming musicians, artisans, and chefs in Nashville.  Sept 21 will be a mega event held as many travel to Nashville to attend the famed AMERICANAFEST and will feature over 25 bands.

Festival founder & curator Paul McDonald has curated a festival experience that will be sure to showcase some of the best music, food, and art in the area. Each show will pair some of Nashville’s best visual artists, chefs, vendors, and musicians to bring you one the most exciting music & food experiences in Nashville. The mission is always to GIVE BACK. Profits from each show will be used to lift up local organizations and non-profits within the community.

McDonald has always had a dream of throwing his own music festival since he started playing in bands almost 20 years ago. “I’ve been on the road playing music for a good while now. I’ve played more dive bars, honky tonks, & music festivals than I can count. Somewhere along the way I thought it was time to start creating my own space where everyone is invited to the party. No genres. No cliques. No egos. I wanted a vehicle where I could get all my friends and favorite artists together and we could use our voices for the greater good, raising funds for charitable causes and lifting up the community. After all these years, I’ve found that giving back and helping others is really what it’s all about.”
