I make no apologies for my admiration of Trisha Yearwood. I think I was 13 years old at the old Bellevue Center mall with my family when I first saw her. Keep in mind, it was the ’90s; she had big curly hair, and Abercrombie and Fitch was still a preppy store (if any of you remember those days). I wanted her autograph (something we did before smartphones and selfies). I was shy, but my father who is fearless and has never met a stranger, walked into the record store (again that was a thing in the 1990s) and bought her CD. He walked up to the future Mrs. Brooks and said his kids wanted her autograph. She walked over to us, gave us a hug and thanked us for…

It’s no secret that Nashville is filled with strong, successful women. Our town is filled with women from all walks of life and all different industries making their mark in memorable, long-term ways. From the artists and influencers shaping the way the world sees our town from the outside in, to the local businesswomen and elected officials who are instilling change from the inside out, there’s no question who runs our world. (To paraphrase Beyonce.) It’s an honor to celebrate these inspiring Women in Business (and beyond) year after year in our August issue, and I can’t wait for you to meet this year’s lineup. In fact, you can meet them in person at our Women in Business event at the Virgin Hotel on August 24. (Visit nashvillelifestyles.com for all the…

Inspired by Nature: I’m from Milwaukee originally and from that generation of you just went outside until it got dark or someone got hurt, so I’ve always loved being outside. I’ve worked my whole life. I started waitressing when I was 15, I was in the corporate world internationally in Europe, and then back to the U.S. I worked on Music Row, worked for a video production company, and I bought a house on the river in 2013 in Madison, Tennessee. In 2014 I was just feeling really burnt out and didn’t want to live behind a computer my whole life anymore. So, I uncharacteristically quit and started taking my kayak outside in my backyard. I was lucky enough to have direct river access and just got reconnected with nature…

we need to talk

Seasoned with in-the-moment soul and featuring a sampler of difficult subjects, it moves the needle on her long artistic evolution, and doesn’t shy away from the facts. Because in Rose’s eyes, it’s about time the American family addressed its issues. Hot takes on a growing cultural divide, inequality, the predatory aspects of social media and more are served, as Rose orders up the creative gumption to say and sound how she wants. But if that recipe sounds less than appealing, have no fear. The overall dish is much tastier than it looks. Rose made sure the secret ingredient was understanding. “These were all songs written during what I think we can agree was a really politically contentious time,” she admits. “It made me feel like an exposed nerve, like there is a…

party with a purpose

It’s been more than a year since red carpet events, but on August 21 Vanderbilt Comprehensive Care Clinic (VCCC) will kick off the return of formal parties with its inaugural Ruby Gala. All proceeds go towards VCCC’s goal of ending the HIV/AIDS epidemic by funding activities related to patient care and endowing the training of future HIV specialists. While commemorating the achievements made in the battle against HIV thus far, in addition to rekindling the activism and awareness needed to put an end to the HIV epidemic, the Ruby Gala is sure to be a night worthy of celebration. After the VCCC’s incredibly successful 2019 25th Anniversary Gala (the predecessor to the Ruby Gala), VCCC medical director Dr. Sean Kelly knew the event needed to become an annual occurrence. With the…

Combing two of Music City’s most cherished pastimes—music and brunch—Nashville Repertory Theatre’s biggest fundraising event is back, live and in person, with its most exciting lineup yet.
