Summer’s here and Nashville is in full swing! To celebrate, we’ve packed this issue with some of our favorite return events, must-try food and drink, and of course, music. Country star and recent CMT Music Awards host (and winner) Kane Brown chatted with writer Chris Parton for this month’s cover story. Find out what Brown is loving most about being a new dad, his philosophy on collaborative music-making, and why he’s so excited to get back on tour this year in the exclusive interview. And to keep the summer music cranking, I chatted with the incredible Yola (who you may remember from our 2020 Most Fascinating People cover) about her new album Stand for Myself. I always love talking to this vocal powerhouse, and if you’re looking for a record to belt out…

whiskey summer

IT’S A PERFECT SPRING DAY IN NASHVILLE— sunny and crisp, with the low buzz of a city emerging from COVID-19 like the coming cicada-pocolypse—and country artist Kane Brown is in a particularly cheerful mood. The rising chart-topper just got back from his one-year-old daughter Kingsley’s first swimming lesson, and fatherly pride betrays his normally cool-and-collected demeanor. “She loves the pool, and she always sticks her head underwater,” he says warmly, pausing with a hint of far-off wonder. “It’s pretty cool.” It’s this kind of wholesome family moment that Brown truly seems to love the most—aside from breaking new ground musically, that is. But soon, he’ll once again be living those doting daddy moments from afar. After a run of fair-and-festival dates gets him back onstage this summer, Brown will finish up headlining his…

counter intelligence

In the tumultuous year 1939, as our country strained from a decade of the Great Depression, these iconic works came into being: John Steinbeck published The Grapes of Wrath, Billie Holiday recorded “Strange Fruit,” Lou Gehrig made his farewell speech. In Nashville, young Lynn Chandler struck a deal with the Elliston Pharmacy, and opened his now iconic Elliston Place Soda Shop. Over its eight-decade span (the longest continuously operating restaurant in Nashville history), the soda shop had its share of tumult, changing ownership, struggling against the backdrop of a city in rapid growth, everyone drawn to the shiny and new. In 2019, it seemed destined to shutter forever. But 2021 brings a new chapter for Elliston Place Soda Shop. Developer Tony Giarratana and his wife Lisa purchased the business and set out…

THE JOE BERETTA FOUNDATION’S DINNER IN THE VINES The Joe Beretta Foundation, which was established in 2016 to meet the practical needs of advanced heart failure patients and their families by providing emergency housing, emotional support, and stability in crisis, hosted the fourth annual Dinner in the Vines fundraising event on June 12 at Beretta Vineyard. The evening included a delicious, multi-course Italian meal in the breathtakingly beautiful vineyard, an open wine bar, an incredible silent auction, and a private wine cellar tasting for VIP guests.

Welcome to our July issue—our annual Top Doctors feature. You’ll see that this list is a must-have for you year-round. For your information, we work with renowned Castle Connolly who compiles the list of physicians by peer nominations, so you know that your doctor has been recommended by another doctor for their specialty. I think it is really important to keep this kind of information on-hand, especially as the city grows. Obviously, we have many wonderful physicians here in Nashville, but as the population continues to expand, the availability of those docs might be tough. I want to know (personally speaking) who I want to see and who is the best—when I need them. On a lighter note (or heavier depending how many you eat) we just completed our 2021 Battle…
