Nashville is obviously a hotbed of country music. But it will become a hotbed of hard rock and of metal on Dec. 5, as members of powerhouses like Black Sabbath, Quiet Riot, Dio, Whitesnake and Ratt will all perform a holiday benefit at 12th and Porter, which is designed to raise money for education programs for prison inmates.

Vinny Appice and Carlos Cavazo are on board. So if you dig Sabbath, Quiet Riot and Ratt, you best be attending.

The VIP ticket is $50, which includes entry to the show, a drink and a meet and greet with the performers.
