Made in Nashville. Yep, that sure has a nice ring to it. From clothing and accessories, to snacks and other fun finds, we’ve rounded up 17 things homegrown in Music City.

While some of these brands have branched out beyond our city, one thing’s for sure — there’s some major inspo happening around these parts.


Ranger Station
The Nashville fragrance brand was established in 2015 by husband-and-wife duo Steve and Jordan Soderholm. Find perfumes, room sprays, hand-poured candles, and more at Ranger Station’s new storefront in 12 South — 2905 12th Ave. S.

    Funding will go toward projects aimed at reducing carbon emissions. | Photo by Charley Pangus via Unsplash
    Did you know that as of 2021, 28% of greenhouse gas emissions in the US come from transportation?

    Yeah, we know… kind of a bummer, and maybe not the news you want to start your morning with. So let’s get to the good stuff: The Carbon Reduction Program, an effort to reduce transportation emissions through local and statewide projects that are federally funded.

    What is the Carbon Reduction Program?

    In an effort to reduce transportation emissions across the US, the Carbon Reduction Program was created in 2021 to distribute $6.4 billion in formula funding over a five-year period.

    What’s driving the news?

    By tomorrow, Nov. 15, states and designated metropolitan planning organizations are tasked with unveiling their strategies to reduce emissions through the program.

    They’ll also need to disclose which projects will be funded by the program — whether that be installing protected bike lanes in one city, creating a new bus rapid transit system in another, or a different project that helps reduce carbon emissions.

    Our question for you while we await funding news: How would you like to see this grant used in Nashville? Let us know below.
    What kind(s) of projects in Nashville would you like to see funded by the Carbon Reduction Program?

    A. Public transportation
