new music friday: Kelsea Ballerini

When Kelsea Ballerini released her self-titled album, Kelsea, in March, I didn’t listen to the whole album. With her latest release, Ballerini, I feel more compelled to listen to her stories. In my opinion, Kelsea was a overly produced, pop leaning album, while Ballerini shows all the same songs in a different, light-hearted way. IContinue reading “new music friday: Kelsea Ballerini”

music city series: Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams

Although Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams is not based out of Nashville, it has been a staple to my experience in Nashville.

I try to stay away from ice cream as muchContinue reading “music city series: Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams”

my breast reduction story & advice

My journey leading up to my breast reduction was a long one. For years, my mother and I had always talked about my options and we always decided for me to wait until after I had kids.

Bakersfield is where the infamous sound made popular by Buck Owen and Merle Haggard called the “Bakersfield Sound” was created.

music city series: Opryland

This area of town is very important to me because I work at the Grand Ole Opry House. When people come into the Opry Shop, they always assume that there isn’t a lot to do in that area of town, but that’s far from the truth. If you stop by the Opry, be sure toContinue reading “music city series: Opryland”
