from the publisher

Bobby Bones once said on his radio show that being on the cover of Nashville Lifestyles was a bucket list item for him— that, and having his book show up in Oprah’s book club. Well, Bobby, we are making dreams come true—now, let’s get Oprah a copy of that book! In fact, he’s just put out his second book, which will likely also be his second New York Times bestseller. I don’t know how he does it all, but he really does do it all: a nationally syndicated radio show, a comedy tour, a podcast, a new book, and he just appeared on American Idol, mentoring the contestants. Turn to page 54 to read more, and head to our website this month to catch our exclusive “20 Questions” video with…

behind the scenes

From the time he was 13 years old, New Orleans native ROBBY KLEIN has had a camera in his hand, usually in pursuit of documenting his surroundings in the deep south. In 2011, ten months after marrying his junior high sweetheart, Klein and his new wife, Jady packed their bags and moved to Nashville. Here, he works as an entertainment and advertising photographer who regularly shoots country music artists, television and film stars, and entertainers—including Bobby Bones for Nashville Lifestyles. He also travels regularly to Los Angeles and New York for his work. From personal heroes to global icons, he says that the most rewarding part of his work is meeting people from so many backgrounds. “To capture an image of who that person really is gives me the most life,”…

a zoo-topia

As of 2017, the Nashville Zoo housed 375 different species and 2,675 individual animals—naturally, this Tennessee attraction spends a lot of money on food. Specifically, thousands of pounds of lettuce. To help fund everything from food to water bills, the zoo is hosting its fourth annual Red, White & Zoo wine-tasting event on July 27, at 7 p.m. Guests are invited to roam the zoo grounds and explore select exhibits, while sipping on wine samples from all over the world. The animals will be out until dusk for this special, after-hours event, and zookeepers will be available to answer any questions. This fundraiser gives adults the full zoo experience, but without the heat and chaos of a summer daytime trip. “It’s really just a very relaxed, strolling type of event,” director of group sales…

“The most important thing about being a record producer is knowing where the best Thai food is in town,” Steve Fishell jokes. Lunch recommendations near Music Row aren’t the only thing he’s willing to share, though. The Grammy-winning producer recently launched Imagine Recordings, allowing guests to witness a 90-minute song-recording session at Sound Stage Studios—the only experience of its kind in Music City. (imaginerecordings.com) Age: 64 Music man: Fishell’s experience lies in all facets of the industry, from playing pedal steel guitar for Emmylou Harris to producing albums for Willie Nelson. Since Nashville’s music scene thrives on collaboration, he passionately believes in sharing this process with the public. “There’s a velvet curtain surrounding how music is made,” he says. “We pull it aside and invite people in to a live recording.” Time crunch:…

nourishing nashville

On July 19, critically acclaimed chef and Chopped judge Maneet Chauhan offers up her Food Network-worthy skills for Nourish, an annual dinner and auction that benefits The Nashville Food Project. Chauhan will assemble a team of Nashville’s most innovative chefs to cook a five-course meal for the guests of this nonprofit fundraiser. The Nashville Food Project development director Teri Sloan says each chef will be responsible for a single course, while working closely with Chauhan to create a cohesive meal. “Since Maneet herself is an immigrant, we are working with a lot of immigrant chefs this year,” Sloan says. Event ticket sales and live auction proceeds will help The Nashville Food Project continue alleviating hunger in the Nashville community and bringing people together through growing, cooking, and sharing nourishing food. Since its founding in…
