TICKET GIVEAWAY for The Southern C Summit in MUSIC CITY


Who wants to hit Music City?

You all know I am a HUGE fan of The Southern C and this amazing network of the south. The two previous Summits have been incredibly inspiring, informative and loads of fun. I will not miss one ever if I can help it.  I have learned so much on building my brand through these events as well as having made a whole new network of friends.  

I usually have to come in a day early and stay a day late because of all the trouble we seem to get into on these excursions such as shopping, dining at the hottest spots, and late night networking. 


The Southern C Summit is letting The English Room give away a ticket.  Here is the scoop:

1. Become a Southern C member HERE

2. Write a comment on my blog with your favorite post or aspect of The Southern C.

3. Like The Southern C and The English Room on Facebook.

4. Polish your cowboy boots and wait anxiously for the winner announcement on September 24th.


Be sure to tell your friends too.

I will be choosing a winner based on the comment that most exudes the desire to come join in the fun.

Need more reasons why you and your brand NEED to be there?  Here are the top 10:

Cheri & Whitney’s Top Ten Reasons to Attend The Southern C Summit in Nashville

1.  It’s Nashville!  Need we say more? 

2.  Our venue is beyond cool! Ruby Nashville is located on the edge of Hillsboro Village, surrounded by Fannie Mae Dees Park (aka Dragon Park) and across the street from the Vanderbilt.  The space has been referred to as contemporary, industrial, historic and natural – almost anything other than institutional.  It is housed in what used to be a Primitive Baptist Church (constructed 1945).

3.  Our host hotel,  The Loews Vanderbilt, is the only AAA Four-Diamond hotel
in Tennessee for over 28 consecutive years and they just completed its $17
million renovation in July 2013! Swank! 

4.  Can we say VIP?  Take a chartered shuttle (ie. party bus) to Fontanel
and get your Goo Goo on as you sip some Whisper Creek Tennessee SippingCream.  Third time Summit attendee and Goo Goo Cluster Marketing Director Beth Sachan is cooking up a fun plan with the Whisper Creek folks for a big time on the bus!

5.  Can we say double VIP?  Go on a private tour of the Southern Living Idea House and hear from the big man himself… Editor-In-Chief Lindsay Bierman!

6.  The Southern Living Idea House will be decorated for Christmas… squeal!

7.  Two words:  Come hungry!  From Callie’s Charleston Biscuits Breakfast to lunch from Nashville favorites (shrimp & grits from The Southern!) to delicious desserts provided by Husk Restaurant and Grey Ghost Bakery to freshly made pralines prepared by Epting Events and featuring Schermer Pecans, be ready to eat!

8.  All together now… SWAG BAG!  No more words necessary 🙂

9.  Educational sessions focusing on social media and marketing strategies with award-winning internet consultant and nationally acclaimed speaker Ryan Dorhn of Brain Swell Media,  Southern Living Homes Editor Jennifer Kopf, culinary author & food stylist Libbie Summers and lifestyle blogger Cassie Kelley of Womanista–Inspiring panel discussions withLeapfrog PR,  Green Olive Media and Recipe for Press author Amy Flurry with Nan Myers, event designer & owner of Firefly boutique

 10.  We have some surprises in store for you!

    Great location (per usual) and guest speakers. I would love the opportunity to participate in the next summit. Hard to pick a favorite post. Particularly during football season with all of the tailgate food posts. So I am going to go with the Interior Canvas post on wallcoverings. Made me want different grass colored grass cloth in every room!

    Hey Holly! (said in my best lower Alabama accent) I have been following you on Pinterest for quite a while, and I would LOVE to meet you at the summit. I have recently started an interior decorating and event styling business and joined the Southern C last month. What an opportunity for a newbie like me to hear such exciting speakers! I feel like it would give me an extra dose of southern enthusiasm as I want to jump start my new business. And in Nashville to boot!

    As a lover of all things beautiful and southern (minus Redneckville) I love the Southern C. I joined and love the network aspect of this site. As an artist, my favorite blogs are the Art and Design category. My favorite post might be Fab Finds via Etsy. Who doesn’t love a fab find… and Etsy! I have some Dan Post cowboy boots that I bought 22 years ago and they are still going strong. Would love to have them visit the music capital extraordinaire!
