Not just a critically acclaimed singer/songwriter with three albums under her belt, Holly Williams is also one of Nashville’s leading entrepreneurs. This inspiring mother of three owns two of Nashville’s hottest retail spots: H. Audrey and White’s Mercantile.
Both stores show off her “exquisite taste” as described by gal pal and shopper Gwyneth Paltrow. And Ms. Paltrow is not alone. H. Audrey was recently named “one of the top shops in the U.S.” by Elle Magazine.
Holly has a passion for people who, like her, follow their dreams. She leads by example, successfully juggling career, entrepreneurial ventures and family. Her husband Chris Coleman is a renowned Nashville artist whose pieces hang on the store walls. And he and Holly write and tour together.
Comprised of vocalists and multi-instrumentalists John Davidson and Jacob Bryant, and drummer Trevor Davis, The Brummies have been playing together in various incarnations since high school. With a landmark new album, Eternal Reach, the trio are a band clearly on the rise, now writing for superstar Kacey Musgraves and opening for Little Big Town at Red Rocks in September 2018.
