NASHVILLE, Tenn.––GRAMMY®-winning superstar Faith Hill, together with her design team, architect Bobby McAlpine and interior designer Ray Booth, will share their experience of building an island paradise in a panel discussion moderated by MILIEU Design Director Leslie Newsom Rascoe at the 29th annual Antiques and Garden Show of Nashville.
The Show is set for Feb. 1–3, 2019 at the Music City Center in downtown Nashville. A detailed Show schedule and tickets are available at AntiquesandGardenShow.com.
“I’ve attended many of the Antiques and Garden Shows in the past, and I’m excited to be a part of it this year,” Hill said. “Bobby and Ray are extremely talented and so much fun to work with. We are looking forward to sharing what we learned in transforming a 20-acre island into our private paradise getaway.”
McAlpine and Booth are partners of the interior design and architecture firm McALPINE. Known for their timeless work, the firm provides high-end design on projects ranging from residences and restaurants to private chapels and follies in a public park. The team showcases their talents around the country with offices in Nashville, Atlanta, Montgomery and New York.
The Show draws more than 15,000 attendees annually with its world-class collection of antiques from more than 150 dealers, expertly landscaped gardens and opportunities to engage with some of the nation’s leading voices and talents in the design, antique and horticultural spheres.
Chaired by Martha Chapman and Shea Ghertner, the 2019 Show theme will be “A Passion for Home.” In addition to the keynote, other speakers will talk about their passions for entertaining, home and design. The featured speakers and moderators are:
