Nashville’s got its own set of courses fit for champions, and while the Masters is held at a private club, we wanted to celebrate this timeless tournament which is right around the corner, April 11-14. We tried on a green jacket and stepped into the shoes of a golf champion to share our local picks for the Masters Champions Dinner at Augusta National Golf Club.

If you aren’t familiar with the dinner tradition, each year, the most recent champion to join the “Masters Club” is in charge of curating a menu for past winners to enjoy at the Champions Dinner.

Here is what City Editors Dylan and Skylar would pick locally for their all-star dinner spread... and champions don’t have a budget.

Beyond the crack of the bat and barks on Tito’s Tail Waggin’ Tuesdays, Nashville Sounds players have curated some notable noises of their own that will give the crowd a glimpse into their personalities as they step up to the plate this season.

We got a hold of the team’s 2024 walk-up songs, and it’s a total mix — from pitcher Rob Zastryzny’s choice of the Bee Gees’ funky, 1970s dance hit “Stayin’ Alive” to Bob Marley’s highly-covered “Three Little Birds” picked by outfielder Chavez Young.

Listen to a preview of the playlist on our Spotify, or hear them in person during tonight’s home opener with a post-game fireworks show and schedule cling giveaway.
