This summer, explore five all-American cities with the fashion influencers that call them home. Experience all that Nashville has to offer with fashion blogger Jessica Sweatt.

There is perhaps nothing more American than country music, and the epicenter of the country music industry is undeniably Nashville. Living up to its moniker “Music City,” the charming Southern city is home to some of the nation’s most historic music institutions and hosts some of the world’s most renowned musical acts.

Nashville is a hotbed of talent and creativity—and that extends beyond country music. Most notably, the city has a flourishing fashion community. In April, fashion took center stage as the city hosted its fourth annual Nashville Fashion Week. 

The quintessential Nashville style is a little bit country, a little bit rock and a lot of denim. “Nashvillians live and die in denim,” says Sweatt, whose blog Here & Now keeps her readers in the loop on the most cutting-edge fashion trends.

Hit the town with Sweatt as she explores some of her favorite Nashville locales, and listen closely as she explains how to give your denim staples a Southern twist.
