Southern Living Hosts Biscuits And Jam Concert Series In Nashville

Monday, July 8, 2013

Southern Living will host Biscuits and Jam Concert Series 5:30 p.m. Sunday evenings July 7-Aug. 25 at the 2013 Southern Living Idea House’s courtyard at Fontanel. Tickets are $15.

Set against a scenic backdrop of classic Southern architecture and gardens, guests will enjoy acoustic performances by emerging country artists and a picnic-themed menu featuring Southern Living Test Kitchen recipes, including a complimentary signature biscuit. Artists scheduled include Nikki Lane July 7; Jana Kramer July 14; The Farm July 21; Elizabeth Cook July 28; Holly Williams Aug. 4; Brett Eldredge Aug. 11; Sarah Darling Aug. 18; and Dugas Aug. 25. 

Video footage from each show will be available on the new Country DeepTM App on U-verse TV, online and on mobile devices via the U-verse App for smartphones and tablets. Videos from the series will also be available at SouthernLiving.com/Jam September through December.

The idea for the concert series grew from the Southern Living “Biscuits & Jam” editorial video franchise. In the past, popular country artists have visited Southern Living headquarters to perform a few songs for the staff and enjoy biscuits from the Test Kitchen. This concert series is the third musical attraction on the Fontanel grounds, in addition to the recording studio and outdoor amphitheater. 

The Southern Living Idea House, designed to inspire consumers, is open for tours 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Wednesday-Sunday. This year, the home was built on Barbara Mandrell’s former estate, and will later reopen as a boutique hotel. Tickets to view the house are $12 and a portion of the proceeds benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

The reason I loved it because in the 50 years I have spent in the news business, I have been locked out of press conferences, too. To be truthful, I am a longtime veteran of a bunch of “you versus me” squabbles and, if I do say, ... (click for more)
