Weekend Playlist: NASHFEST

For those of you who don’t live in the amazing city that I call home, let me clue you in on something:

Nashville is having a M O M E N T

The spirit of this place is contagious. You can sense it–it’s literally everywhere; it’s in the food; it’s in the fashion; it’s in the music; it’s in the coffee; it’s in the social scene; it’s in the cocktails; it’s in the neighborhoods; it’s in the streets. Nashville is teeming with creativity and ambition and beauty,

And I want to share that with you.

I want to cultivate this blog to be a city guide for Nashville. A declaration of things you can’t possibly miss and things that you need to know about, no matter where in the world you are.

In fact, not just here, but for all of the places I visit. Come with me.

I haven’t done a playlist post in awhile, so to kickoff Nashfest 2014 I thought I’d get some jams together that spouted from around here. Some of these might be familiar to you and others may not, but I encourage you to give it a listen.
