I don’t know about you, but I am feeling very optimistic these days. It’s been a while, and maybe I am choosing to be an optimist, but the month of May seems like it is going to be more normal (knock on wood or whatever you do for good luck). It’s even in the title of the month: May. If you look up the meaning in the dictionary it says, “expressing possibility.” You know what? I’ll take it—all the possibilities in the world! To that end, I want to tell you that we’re planning to bring things back! Keep your eyes out for some events we have in the works, including a fun dog event at the Mall at Green Hills coming up June 3. Make sure you stay up-to-date on our…

It’s Taurus season, which means two things. One, it’s my birthday month (in case you wanted to jot that down, it’s May 2). But more importantly, that means it’s a season to enjoy all things in life and to seek out the things that make you feel good. Now for the Zodiac nonbelievers out there, that may sound a little hippie-dippy, but I think we can all agree the sentiment behind it is not only a great life motto, it’s also perfectly timed. Thanks to the modern wonders of science (hello, vaccines!) the city is opening up more and more, and we’re starting to enjoy more and more of the things that make life in Nashville great. And this issue is chock-full of them. Our cover star, Miranda Lambert, has a new…

beyond the beach

There are those of us—adults of a certain age—who recall childhood as something far simpler than what today’s kids face. Back then, there were no cell phones. No unanswered emails. No electronic tethers. Freedom felt like a well-oiled bike and a posse of friends to roam with, and adventures were found any place with water or something new to explore. If you grew up going to the beach for vacation, you were maybe coated with sunscreen once a day and then set free to go be a kid. Finding friends on vacation could be as simple as building a sandcastle with somebody your own size (“Hey, you’re eight? I’m eight! We should be friends!”) Or maybe your family had a tradition of traveling with other families, where you had a…

As the founder and editor of Urbaanite, a newsletter, online platform, and printed annual guidebook showcasing an oft-missing diverse view of Nashville, Ashley Currie is giving a voice to creators and business owners who don’t always get their due. “My goal was always to ensure our community felt seen in Nashville but also that they could see Nashville,” she says. “Feeling seen and being seen has always been the driver because I’ve had conversations—even with other natives—who say I don’t think my city sees me and I don’t want them to feel that way at all.” Serving as a guide for locals and tourists alike since 2015, Urbaanite gives a unique insight into Currie’s hometown by way of introducing readers to black-owned-and-operated-shops, restaurants, and experiences via stories, interviews, and events.

sweet escape

To say that we’ve spent our fair share of time this past year stuck inside, glued to our phones, computers, and TVs would be an understatement. And with summer right around the corner, it’s getting harder and harder to fight off the travel bug. Luckily, Getaway—the company offering mindful escapes to small cabins in nature—is providing a safe, socially distanced way to disconnect from the world of Zoom calls and emails and indulge in the tranquility of nature. Now with its new Outpost, Getaway Dale Hollow, a serene outdoor retreat is just a short two-hour drive from Nashville. Nestled in Moss, Tenn., Getaway Dale Hollow marks the company’s third Outpost in the Southeast, and its first in Tennessee. Sitting on 415 acres of land, this location boasts the largest acreage of…

back to basics

Thomas Rhett is taking it back to his roots with his latest project, Country Again: Side A, the first half of a two-part release (with a second volume to come later this year). After cultivating his signature country-meets-pop/rock sound over four albums—including 16 Multiplatinum and Gold-certified No. 1 singles, 10 billion streams, numerous awards and nominations—the singer felt like it was time to revisit the purist philosophy that made him fall in love with country music to begin with. Co-written entirely by the singer, the introspective feel of Country Again: Side A is a culmination of a decade’s worth of life experience, along with the challenges brought by 2020 and the resulting time to reflect and reset. With this album Thomas Rhett embraces the sounds, stories, and methods that drew him…
