First off, let me congratulate the winner of our annual Battle of the Burger contest. This year we went virtual and had hundreds of votes and nominations. All of this led to the winner: Emmy Squared! If you haven’t had their burger called the “Le Big Matt” it is something special—and a clear winner with our readers and followers. Also, thanks to the Tennessee Beef Council for sponsoring this year’s competition! We may not be able to get together and sample them right now, but we will hopefully in the near future! Every August, we feature successful women in the magazine and host our Women In Business luncheon. It is probably my favorite event of the year when I get to interview these women live and talk about their careers, challenges,…

It’s an understatement to say that 2020 has been a tough year for Nashville businesses. First came the tornado, and then the pandemic. But the female business owners, entrepreneurs, and success stories profiled in this issue have persevered. Against all odds, they’ve continued to grow their brands, inspire others, and help their community in any way possible. The women who grace these pages are also a testament to the fact that no matter your upbringing or situation, you can pursue the life you’ve always wanted. Their stories are a celebration of hard work and knowing your own worth. When it comes to overcoming obstacles and giving back, can we all just take a moment to applaud the queen herself, Dolly Parton? (Go ahead, I’ll wait.) Not only has Dolly paved the way…

tiera

Singer/songwriter Tiera, 22, loved singing from an early age. The Alabama native started singing in the choir when she was in elementary school, but her passion really took flight when she reached high school and began coming to Nashville to play shows and sit in on cowriting sessions. Less than a decade later, Tiera has signed with one of her songwriting heroes, Nicolle Galyon, as the flagship songwriter for the publishing arm of her female-driven label, Songs & Daughters, in partnership with Big Loud Publishing and Warner Chappell Music. As a fan of Galyon, Tiera always wanted to write with the powerhouse behind hits like Dan + Shay’s “Tequila” and Miranda Lambert’s “Automatic,” but this was beyond a dream come true. “Never in a million years would I have thought that I…

the rise of cassadee pope

When Cassadee Pope’s plans to record a studio album in April were put on hold due to COVID-19 restrictions, the singer found herself in an interesting position. “I realized I didn’t have the songs that I thought I had [for that album],” she says. “It was a blessing in disguise for me creatively. It just wasn’t there yet. And if I’m going to do a full band record, I want it to be confident in it.” But the change in plans, coupled with the cancellation of her busy touring schedule made for a challenging time. Pope, who thrives off performing and creating, found herself feeling lost in this new reality. “I had a hard time with feeling like I didn’t have a purpose,” she says. “I did a lot of self-work on finding…

a suffrage tribute

As you enter the second-story Special Collections rooms of the Nashville Public Library (NPL) downtown, your eye is immediately drawn to the view out the window of the State Capitol building just beyond. Cast your glance to the right and you’ll see the Hermitage Hotel. That view frames the story that now unfolds in the library’s newest permanent exhibit, Votes for Women, which sits directly across from the Civil Rights Room. Votes for Women opens (virtually for now) on August 18, the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment, which soon became law, giving women the right to vote. The vote was not an easy win—tireless female advocates on both sides battled around the country, with the final stand-off playing out on the blocks surrounding the Capitol, including at…
