Dancing With The Nashville Stars
Meet Gregg McDermott, M Street's rockstar Director of Operations and dancer extraordinaire.

Gregg + Feed America First
Getting involved with Feed America First was a no-brainer for Gregg. Working in the restaurant industry, Gregg sees first-hand how much food goes to waste every single day, and knew he "could make a contribution to helping feed all the hungry people in Tennessee and across the country."
For Gregg's final dance number, he danced to a Michael Jackson medley featuring hits like "Up All Night" and "Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough".
Gregg embraced the disco fever, dressed in '70s garb complete with a full afro.
His dancing partner, Madison lit up the stage with her high kicks and dips, wearing a flare-legged disco bodysuit.
Both Gregg's family and M Street family came in full-force to cheer him on.
The team came prepared with neon posters, sequin Michael Jackson gloves, and face cut-outs.
Gregg's performance was rocking!
His efforts helped to raise enough funds to supply 110,000-160,000 meals.
