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…

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…

Kirbee Miller found a way to bridge her love for food and community to create KiNiMi Kitchen, which she launched in 2017. The go-to culinary expert and personality has built up an empire that includes cooking classes, TV appearances, pop-up shops, and an artisan popcorn line called KiNiMi Pop. But she’s not just a talented cook. This 36-year-old multitasker manages each day as a wife, caregiver, entrepreneur, and full-time employee in healthcare. And while some may struggle with such a staggering workload, Miller believes it has actually made her stronger. The multi-hyphenate chatted with us about passion for food and how it’s played a part in the significant moments of her life. Best memories are in the kitchen: Food has always been a part of my story. Being in the kitchen and…

music to our ears

If there’s one thing Nashvillians hold near and dear, it’s live music. And with in-person shows on pause for more than a year, we’re all excited for some of the city’s most talented musicians to make their return to the venues we love. One of the most beloved is the Schermerhorn Symphony Center, where the Nashville Symphony will resume regular performances just in time for its 75th anniversary season. The Nashville Symphony’s 2021-22 season features a remarkable lineup of over 100 classical, pops, jazz, and family concerts with the GRAMMY-winning orchestra. Additionally, attendees can expect appearances by renowned guest artists, film favorites screened with the accompaniment of a live orchestra, and so much more. The season kicks off Sept. 16-18 with Fanfare for Music City, a program opening with Aaron Copland’s Fanfare…

taking a stand

Yola, the powerhouse singer/songwriter, gets personal on her sophomore album Stand for Myself. With lyrics inspired by her own experiences and emotions and a sound that mixes soul and classic pop, the album distinguishes itself from her 2019 debut: the four-time Grammy-nominated Americana/roots-heavy Walk Through Fire. For the new outing, Yola once again partnered with producer (and one-half of the Black Keys) Dan Auerbach to create a no-skips lineup of flawless tracks that are entirely and unapologetically representative of who she is, while paying tribute to anyone who has ever been made to feel like an outsider. “It is 1,000 percent representative of who I am, and my hopes to connect with those who have been made to feel like they were ‘other,’” says Yola. She does so by way of 12 modern…

THE WALLFLOWERS EXIT WOUNDS Alternative pioneers The Wallflowers return for their first album in nearly a decade with Exit Wounds, delivering a brand-new but authentically ’90s set. With frontman Jakob Dylan’s iconic vocals in fine form, this latest batch of roots-rock poetry wears its emotional scars like a badge of honor. (Available July 9.) IDA MAE CLICK CLICK DOMINO Writing from the backseat of a tour van, Nashville-byway-of-London duo Ida Mae explore the vast, conflicting nature of America in their second album, Click Click Domino. Intimate, cobblestoned Brit-folk combines with a speeding tractor trailer of hard rock—an apt study in cultural contrast. (Available July 16.) CHASE BRYANT UPBRINGING Former pop-country hitmaker Chase Bryant wrestles back his creative identity in the long-awaited debut, Upbringing, completing a harrowing journey that included a suicide attempt in 2018. Produced…
