This past week I had the privilege of interviewing an icon of country music, Emmylou Harris. This multi-talented woman is also a humanitarian and animal rights activist. She has opened her home to create a haven for dogs that are in danger if being euthanized by Metro animal shelters. Bonaparte’s Retreat is named for her beloved “road dog” who now sends blessings from doggie heaven. Emmylou’s organization is also an adoption and foster care agency that helps these four-legged bundles of love find forever homes. Coming up on Saturday, Corroboree Spa is hosting a fundraiser and doggie holiday celebration. Listen to what Emmylou has to say about her love of dogs, and then head over to Corroboree Spa for a fun-filled morning with your dog.
Are you looking for something fun to do this holiday season? Well, once the ice melts, head over to historic Belmont Mansion for some holiday cheer and a dose of artful culture at Nashville’s largest home. Belmont Mansion has a fascinating history and an amazing art collection and it’s on the beautiful grounds of Belmont University. You might think you’ve seen it all in Nashville, but you haven’t. I talked to Mark Brown who is the Executive Director of the mansion and he has some wonderful stories to tell for all ages. Don’t miss it. Here’s what Mark has to say. Mark Brown
