What are you doing this summer? Are you traveling? Are you hosting a pool party? I miss a pool party! (Truthfully, I miss having a tan and floating on a raft with a margarita.) Here we are, more than a year later when we can be safe, free, and vaccinated. What will you do? I want to do it all! I feel like I took all of that for granted. When I think about it, I really did not appreciate all the things that Nashville has to offer. Sure, I know Music City is a huge tourist attraction with more live music of quality than probably anywhere in the world. But my hometown is so much, much more. We have parks, art, culture, dining; we have it all. So, in this…

Hot town, summer in the city… After last year’s extremely quiet summer it sure feels like old times in Music City once again! Events are coming back (hello, Steeplechase!), Broadway is bustling (then again—was it ever not?), and the line for the wings mural in the Gulch is a solid five blocks long. Things are starting to feel normal again and I am cautiously optimistic that we are back, baby! I’ve been enjoying dining on some of Nashville’s best patios and getting back to my old favorite stores—and shopping some new ones. I’m masked and vaxxed and ready to take this summer by storm. To that end, this issue is filled with fun things you can do in and around Nashville in the coming months. From outdoor fun in the sun to air-conditioned…

phran galante

Within the animal welfare community and beyond, Phran Galante was a driving force for change. Through her tireless efforts, Galante was a pioneer in the animal welfare community, and devoted her life not only to saving animals’ lives, but to fighting for change to better Nashville at large. Recognized as a humanitarian, philanthropist, and community pillar, she also devoted much of her time to supporting the Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt, raising money to better the lives of countless children. With a background and passion for theatre, she was an avid supporter of the Tennessee Performing Arts center (TPAC), as well. Though she passed away on September 23, 2019, after a long battle with lung cancer, Galante’s legacy and lifelong battle giving a voice to the voiceless is…

off to the races

Summer in Music City looks quite different this year compared to the summer of 2020. With events back on the calendar, we’re all eager to make up for a year of cancelations and postponements. Perhaps one of the most exciting returns is the Iroquois Steeplechase. To the delight of many, the iconic annual sporting and social event will make its highly anticipated return to Percy Warner Park on Saturday, June 26. As a Nashville rite of spring since 1941, the Iroquois Steeplechase is traditionally held the second Saturday of each May, and although this year’s June date may be different, the excitement remains just as (if not more) intense. With ticket sales officially open for hospitality tents as well as individual tickets the beginning of May, attendees have been eager to…

a new day

As one of modern country’s most consistent stars, crooner Brett Young has been laser-focused on one thing for almost all of his career—the ever-inspiring, ever-elusive romantic relationship. And so far, there’s been no reason not to. The clean-cut Californian has posted six straight Number Ones to country radio since 2016, with more than a dozen Platinum plaques to go with it. But on his new album, Weekends Look a Little Different These Days, he’s looking at a different kind of love. “I specifically was sitting and watching football with my daughter in my lap, and a bottle in her mouth, and I just thought, ‘This is not what college football Saturdays used to look like,’” Young says with a laugh, speaking by phone just a few weeks before the project’s June 4…

tunes to spin

LUKAS NELSON & PROMISE OF THE REAL A FEW STARS APART Embracing his heritage like never before, Lukas Nelson spent most of the pandemic at home, adding his own chapter of playful country to his father Willie’s tradition. On A Few Stars Apart, the young scion’s vocal at times invokes his dad, but the cosmic-country sound is purely his own. (Available June 11) JOY OLADOKUN in defense of my own happiness Speaking as a black, LGBTQ+ folk artist and first-gen child of Nigerian immigrants, Joy Oladokun’s real-keeping is often striking, and always satisfying. Current events, colorful language and stars like Maren Morris populate a hard-to-pin-down set best described as Americana pop. (Available June 4) AMYTHYST KIAH WARY + STRANGE Amythyst Kiah joins a growing contingent of roots music outsiders using their unique qualities as power.…
