The Music City Hot Wing Festival has been quickly approaching, but some people got a sneak peek of what taste buds can expect.

Sunday was the official pre-game hot wing eating contest.

The top three finalists won an entry into the main event to be held in a week, as well as free passes and cash prizes.

One of the chefs we spoke to had some advice for those people who think they’re brave enough to try the spicy hot wings: dairy.

The winner from Sunday was Brent Campbell of Nashville. He ate three pounds of wings in six minutes.
