The first week-long "Nashville in Belfast" program, showcasing Music City's music, food, culture and business, reached more than 30,000 Belfast residents and was a great success. Musical performances by Mandy Barnett, The Willis Clan, Brian Pounds and two-time Grammy winner Kristian Bush of the duo Sugarland took the sounds of Nashville to various venues in the city. The Nashville delegates staffed a Music City booth at St. George's Market for two nights, providing tourist information and giveaways. There, Michael King of Monell's also did culinary demonstrations and tastings. Delegates had sector meetings to further connections between Belfast and Nashville youth programs, soccer, healthcare, technology, higher education and law. Nashville's Metro Council members Jim Shulman and DeCosta Hastings shared welcoming remarks from Nashville during a Belfast City Council meeting.
