I often feel Music City is mislabeled. Yes, it’s where a country music artist is born, but there’s so much more to Nashville and its surrounding suburbs (Franklin!) than just music. Franklin is a community of passionate artists, aspiring authors, stimulating writers, innovative designers, diverse entrepreneurs, gifted musicians and so much more. And in this issue, you’ll get to meet just a handful of the many, many talented makers that comprise our rich creative community. 

We are continually inspired by the culture our city is bursting with, so for your next night out, we explore a few options for stage, screen, dinner and music.

Whatever your talent, we hope you find some of your own inspiration in these pages and unleash your unbridled creativity!
