Hosted by Jennifer Richmond and Trey Palmer, First Night, the Nashville Theater Honors Gala was preceded by the Red Carpet Event just before the tribute concert on a rainy Sunday, September 4, at Belmont University's Troutt Theatre.

"Actually, this year we added a new wrinkle to the fun on the Red Carpet," said Cary Street, fashion commentator for the event. "We hosted 'The Orange Carpet' to pay homage to this year's First Night charity, the Multiple Sclerosis Society, Tennessee Chapter."

Joining Street on the Orange Carpet were Lisa Garner Harrison and Jessica Carter, who greeted arrivals at the beautiful Troutt Theatre prior to the start of the evening's entertainment, which featured almost 150 performers taking part in the tributes to the six members of the 2011 First Night Class of Honorees - Pam Atha, Daniel Brewer, Gary C. Hoff, Danny Proctor, Layne Sasser and Helen Shute-Pettaway - and was hosted by two-time First Night Award winner David Compton.
