Miss A Columnist

Stacey Oswald, originally from South Florida, moved to Nashville as a member of Vanderbilt University's class of 2015. There, she is the assistant editor of Vanderbilt HerCampus, an online magazine for college girls, as well as a writer for the sports section of the Vanderbilt Hustler. She recently became an initiated sister of Kappa Delta sorority and looks forward to getting involved in more organizations, like an a capella group or a club sport, during her college career. Outside of school and her extracurriculars, Stacey finds happiness in many sources, the most crucial being exercise and the sun. She loves to attend exercise classes and is an avid runner; she recently completed the Country Music Half Marathon. She also loves Vitamin D, especially when on the beach- though of course, she only soaks up the sun after applying SPF. A few of the things Stacey couldn't live without? Good food (especially from Sweet Cece's, Bricktops, and Bread & Co.), great books (The Bungalow by Sarah Jio is a recent favorite), her family back in Florida, her wonderful boyfriend, and all of the great friends she's made at Vanderbilt.

Southern Living Biscuits & Jam Concert Series

Every Southern girl loves a good biscuit. Thus, it comes as no surprise that Southern Living has thought up a summer concert series involving everyone’s favorite form of carbohydrate.

On Sunday evenings this summer, the Southern Living Idea House at the Fontanel will hold concerts featuring up-and-coming musicians and tons of delicious country food. Upcoming performers include Elizabeth Cook, Sarah Darling, and my personal favorite, Brett Eldredge, who sings “Don’t Ya,” one of the hit songs of the summer.

This concert series is the perfect way for Nashville residents to see the Southern Living Idea House, which just opened up at the Fontanel last month. It is expected to draw visitors from all over the country looking for a dose of inspiration or a simple getaway from reality. In addition, a portion of ticket proceeds will go toward the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, which is the charity supported by the Southern Living Idea House each year. But what makes the Idea House at the Fontanel different from the 58 houses built before it? This will be the first to become a public space after its six-month public opening, which means that people will actually be able to stay at the house and hold events there as well. It’s a great addition to our growing city and I’m excited to see how the house will evolve in the coming years.

In the meantime, I urge you to buy tickets to the Southern Living Biscuits & Jam  Concert Series presented by AT&T U-Verse. The summer season is meant to be enjoyed, and in my opinion, nothing sounds better than Southern food and country music on a Sunday evening. Don’t miss your opportunity to try recipes straight from the Southern Living Test Kitchen or hear up-and-coming country artists before they become stars. Buy your ticket today and, rain or shine, get ready for a lip-smacking good time!

WHEN: Sunday evenings from July 7 – August 25; doors open at 5 p.m. and concerts begin at 5:30 p.m.
