Welcome to the premiere issue of Hendersonville Lifestyle. We’re very excited to bring you this new community magazine inspired by this city. Hendersonville Lifestyle will be filled with engaging articles, and great photography, delivered to you monthly in a high-quality format. More importantly, our pages will be filled with faces, places and businesses that you may or may not recognize, combined with in-depth stories, news or special events behind them.
I came to Nashville in 1993, to work for a very large newspaper (guess the paper), living in Antioch, where at that time was really growing. After 10 years my wife and I left here to work for large newspapers in Knoxville, Myrtle Beach, S.C., and Charlotte, N.C. Six and one-half years later we returned to the large – but smaller – newspaper in Nashville. When we came back my first thoughts were to find a home south of Hendersonville in Williamson County, or maybe Murfreesboro, because that’s where most of our friends live. But my wife was very persistent about finding a home in Hendersonville. Today, after living here for nearly four years I am so grateful for her persistence. In my interview with Hendersonville Mayor Scott Foster, he talked about not only how Hendersonville has grown, but the projections for more growth in the coming years. You can see the signs of that growth all around town and feel the buzz in the air with new restaurants, businesses, and subdivisions like Durham Farms. This activity will propel Hendersonville over the next 10 years.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank the team responsible for the end product: our outstanding advertising partners, and the team at the Hendersonville Chamber of Commerce for their outstanding support of our publication. Hendersonville Lifestyle is YOUR magazine and our goal is to become your resource for all things Hendersonville. So if you have any ideas about content, articles or something you feel is missing, please feel free to contact us as we would welcome your feedback.
From my family to yours, peace out!
