William Morris throws best Christmas party year after year~

I usually attend about a dozen Christmas parties every season, but there is only ONE that I NEVER want to miss- the William Morris Agency party. I’m not exactly sure what makes this party take my top prize, but I do know I’m not alone in my thoughts. I’ve had several conversations with other partygoers about it always being “the best Christmas party.”

Sure there is lots of hobnobbing and a few celebrity sightings, but the atmosphere is always top notch in the towering Music Row building. Carolers great you in the main entrance and then your name is checked off the special list of invitees. Up the elevator you go to where the parking garage is turned into a fantastic lounge. The Gary Musick Company takes credit for the transformation. This year there was a modern twist to the décor, with one classic touch- Merle Kilgore‘s 1959 Sedan DeVille Cadillac showcased in the middle of the room.

I spent much of my time chatting with Albert Haynesworth about his collection of cool cars and nibbling on the food spread. There was shellfish, meat, sweets and an open bar with special Martini’s boasting names like “Agent 007.”

Country singer Clint Black & his wife Lisa Hartman were among the celebrities in attendance. Among those pictured- agent Carey Nelson Burch, Susan Clark & Neil Vance, WM VP Barry Jeffrey (who you may recognize from The Bad Girls Club), News 2′s Jamey Tucker & former News 2 sport reporter Christ Stout with their lovely wives, Tennessee Titans Albert Haynesworth & Rob Bironas, Gunnar Nelson & Jennifer Lane, Sell Out PresentsChris Cobb & Vibe Agencies Telisha Arguelles, Bert Hensley of The Gary Musick Company and musician/comedian Chris Crofton behind the bar.
