Here we are entering a new year and a new decade. Nashville Lifestyles is officially 20 years old and I am more than double that. I don’t know about you, dear faithful readers, but I tend to make the same resolution every year: to diet and work out more. I’m sure you’ve noticed that the word diet begins with the word “die,” which is discouraging to anyone and no doubt a sign from the universe. My commitment to exercise more and eat less is directly combated by my affection for carbohydrates and alcohol. Everyone seems to make a resolution or two, so we’ve asked dozens of notable Nashvillians for theirs this year. Speaking of the New Year and new things, we are launching a new podcast. This has been months in the…

I can’t believe it is the year 2020! Weren’t we supposed to have flying cars and robot housekeepers by now? (And did I just totally age myself?) For me, this new year (and new decade) brings so many new adventures. I am recently married, so this is my first year as a wife. I’m traveling abroad for the first time later this year. (I know, I know, what have I been waiting for?) And I get to continue my dream job here at Nashville Lifestyles, where every day brings something different. For instance: As you may have heard, we just launched our own podcast called, aptly enough, “Nashville Lifestyles: The Podcast.” Check us out on your favorite podcast platforms and tell us what you think. Speaking of listening, can you hear that? It’s…

THE NASHVILLE FLOOD: TEN YEARS LATER 1/10-5/17 Presented by the Frist Art Museum The Frist Art Museum presents its newest exhibition, The Nashville Flood: Ten Years Later, commemorating the city’s historic 2010 flood. The emotional exhibition will be on display from January 10 through May 17 in the always-free Conte Community Arts Gallery. Through photographs and excerpts of oral histories from the Nashville Public Library’s flood archive and The Tennessean, the exhibit will showcase an overview of the destruction caused by this natural disaster, as well as relief efforts spanning 10 different neighborhoods in Davidson County. The flood throughout Middle Tennessee was the result of record-breaking rainfall of more than 13 inches in May of 2010, which caused the Cumberland River to overflow its banks. Thousands of homes and businesses were…

the 8th annual stars for wishes gala

chord overstreet

It’s not often that a family contains more than one high-achieving musician. But for gifted actor/singer-songwriter (and Nashville native) Chord Overstreet, whose father Paul has penned No. 1 hits for the likes of Blake Shelton and Randy Travis, artistic success is a family tradition. His band, Overstreet, unveiled their latest, dirty-danceable track, “My Ex,” at the end of 2019 and there’s more to come over the next few months. Age: 30 Switching it Up: Overstreet moved from Nashville to Los Angeles the fall after he graduated high school, and he found success as an actor with roles in films and television series, even starring as Sam Evans on the Fox network’s Glee. But his musical roots were always present. “Growing up I did impressions of every country artist there is,” he says.…
