Country Music Power Players Celebrate in Downtown Nashville

Drink the hit cocktail from Billboard Magazine’s Nashville bash

To celebrate the country music movers and shakers named in Billboard magazine’s annual Nashville Power Players issue, early last week some of the finest folks in country music gathered at one of the hottest spots in Nashville — The Westin’s all-day rooftop lounge, L27. And the perfect party-starter for the occasion was Florida Georgia Line’s Old Camp Whiskey curated into a Power Player cocktail.

L27 is on the 27th floor of The Westin Hotel. Even when it’s not hosting major events — the summer concert series, radio shows, or parties with top recording artists — the bar is a striking space to grab a drink, some small plates, and sunset views. If you’re a guest at The Westin, you can also access Nashville’s highest infinity pool as well as cozy cabanas.

Billboard also announced to the crowd at the VIP event that the magazine plans to reestablish its Nashville office. Tell me Nashville isn’t the coolest of beans right now.

I was able to snag the Power Player cocktail, and it’s simple to make and tastes like you know what you’re doing. You know the diner scene from the movie Thor, where Chris Hemsworth (as the titular deity) is silently shoveling food in his face but stops to pause after a sip of coffee and says “This drink, I like it. Another!” and slams the mug onto the floor, shattering it? This was my reaction to the Power Player cocktail, and it might just be yours too. All you have to do is add four more items to your grocery list. Here is Old Camp Whiskey’s Power Player cocktail recipe.
