Belles Fleurs

Just like the flowers that founder and owner Bonnie Denton expertly arranges, this beautiful business has germinated and blossomed.  Starting in 2008 in her garage, Belles Fleurs now sets up shop in historic downtown Franklin. “After 50 years of working in the floral industry, I wanted to focus on my love of weddings and events, where my love of flowers and plants began!” Bonnie says. As for what makes her business special, Bonnie has no doubts.  “We are specifically wedding and event floral specialists. Our downtown Franklin location is located in a historic home that our clients love to spend time in, seeing all of our unique collections. Clients can come in and actually see what we have and what we do first-hand!” 

But Belles Fleurs is also a place to learn, offering at the Franklin location classes in fresh arrangements, fall and holiday wreaths, succulent and plant ideas, and projects for kids.

Ashlyn Grayce recently released her first EP, Somethin’ ‘Bout a Song

Country music singer/songwriter Ashlyn Grayce recently released her first EP, Somethin’ ‘Bout a Song, which debuted at #4 on the iTunes Singer/Songwriter Chart and also appeared on the iTunes Bestseller list. Ashlyn is a resident of Brentwood and a 2014 graduate of Brentwood Academy. 

Produced by Brent Rader, the collection is an extremely personal project and features six tracks, all written or co-written by Grayce with the intention of taking listeners on a musical journey through her real-life experiences; the songs touch on everything from love to heartache and breakups. The most personal is “601,” a heartwarming reflection about her childhood home, penned by Grayce after learning that the house was to be torn down.

Many have noted that Grayce’s music has a depth well beyond her years and acknowledge the encouraging and positive message she delivers to young listeners; this is extremely important to the young talent, as she takes her potential as a role model seriously, loves children, and wants to make a difference in their lives through the power of her music. 

The six-song release features collaborations from some of Nashville’s finest songwriters including Kalie Shorr, Daniel Kleindienst, Alex Dooley, Brett Mandel, Troy Castellano, Dave & Julia Carlson (Wild Life Crush) and Evan Thompson. It also showcases her uniquely transparent voice influenced by the likes of Taylor Swift, Miranda Lambert, Kelsea Ballerini, Hillary Scott and Colbie Caillat.
