Taylor Swift and Other Nashville Celebrities

If you’re reading my posts, you know that I’m still fairly new to Nashville. I actually live just outside of Nashville in a city called Hendersonville. Recently, I did some research because I wanted to know which celebrities live (or used to live) in the same area as I do. Here is a list of famous folks who actually live (d) just a couple of blocks from me.

Taylor Swift: She used to live here with her parents in a pretty house by the lake. Now she lives in a high-rise next to Vanderbilt University in Nashville. Hayden Panettiere, from the show “Nashville” lives in the same building as well.

Kelly Clarkson: She’s great. Once in a while people spot her at Target and Wal-Mart.
Gary Allan: He has a gorgeous house by the lake.

Johnny Cash & June Carter Cash: They used to live around the corner from us, but now they are buried in this city. Johnny Cash’s house burned down a few years ago and it’s still yellow-tagged. It’s a massive estate on the lake.

Brad Paisley: Used to live here, but moved to the south side of Nashville.

Unlike in Los Angeles, in Nashville, celebrities are not mobbed by the paparazzi. They can just lead normal lives; bring their kids to school, go shopping, or dining. In fact, Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman are often spotted at Whole Foods or the local mall, but people just let them go about their private lives.

For sure very different from Los Angeles or New York!

Keith Urban’s Album Pre-Release Nashville Party Was a Huge Success

This post is for all the Keith Urban fans (who isn’t) who didn’t get the chance to celebrate with him on Friday. Keith is about to release his seventh studio album titled “Fuse”. Well, I couldn’t be part of this awesome party, but my girls and their lovely friend were. They had a blast! Their reaction: “Keith was as great as usual.”

Favorite Song of the Week: “If You Told Me To” by Hunter Hayes

Country music sensation Hunter Hayes is not just another cute male singer, but also a very talented young artist who not only co-wrote every song on his debut album but he played every note of every instrument (24 instruments) and co-produced the album with Dann Huff. Wow! He is only 21.

While most people love his number one single “Wanted”, I always liked the ballad “If You Told Me To.” To me, this song presents multiple sides to Hunter Hayes as a musician and artist. The song feels like mainstream country with interesting Keith Urban-like guitar intersections. It’s very soulful and calming.

Hunter is currently touring and he is coming to Nashville in October. I hope I get to see him. Hunter is an amazing performer and a very friendly guy.
