Montgomery Gentry Team Up With Tim Gunn and ‘The Revolution’ to Show Off Nashville Hotspots
If you haven't noticed, Nashville is getting quite a bit of press lately. If it's not the awesome foodie joints that have people wanting to taste Music City, it's the great shopping and unmatched live music that gets their attention. That's why Montgomery Gentry teamed up with Tim Gunn to show off their hometown for ABC's new show 'The Revolution.'
Montgomery Gentry is made up of two different fashion personalities -- Troy Gentry, who adopts a sort of country chic personal style, and Eddie Montgomery, whose style can be described only as traditional. Between the two of them, they know the ins and outs of the Nashville fashion scene -- and now Tim Gunn does, too.
In the episode, which aired April 26, Gentry introduced Gunn to Aimee Johns to Flavour for Men, a store that is known for its unmatched client service and for carrying a large number of creative lines from New York to Los Angeles, including Hudson, AG Jeans, Theory, John Varvatos, L.A.M.B., Hale Bob, Joes Jeans and 7 for all Mankind, to name a few. As one of the few boutiques in Nashville that will host private shopping opportunities to include in-store or in-home appointments for those who request it, Flavour is often frequented by Gentry, as well as many other big-name country stars. Country favorites such as Carrie Underwood, Luke Bryan, Blake Shelton, Reba McEntire and Kellie Pickler also love to shop at Flavour.
Montgomery took a different route by introducing Gunn to Morelia Ceuvas, the daughter of famed costumer and artist, Manuel. Often referred to as the “Rhinestone Rembrandt,” Manuel is known for making Johnny Cash the “man in black.” He also created Elvis’ signature gold lamé suit, the garments Bob Dylan wore when performing for the Pope, and ensembles for countless other stars. Thanks to its rich history, the shop -- Manuel American Designs (also known as Manuel Exclusive Clothier or simply Manuel’s) -- is a staple not only of Nashville, but of Americana history.
Unfortunately, 'The Revolution' has since been cancelled for low ratings, but perhaps fans can check out Montgomery Gentry's version of the Nashville fashion scene should ABC decide to re-air it.
