The 6 1 5 Featuring Abby Lindsey
Abby Lindsey is a singer/songwriter born and raised in the valley of the Ozark Mountains in Van Buren, AR. Being a native of the south, she was no stranger to the good ole country classics like LeAnn Rimes, Randy Travis, Trisha Yearwood and Jo Dee Messina, which would come to inspire her dream to be in country music.
Abby moved to Nashville with $50 in her pocket and lived in the pool house of the family she nannied for before finally getting on her feet and establishing a name for herself in town. She released her debut single "She Knew Better" in September of 2020, followed by an official music video which was aired on The Country Network. The video was also nominated for Video of the Year at the Arkansas Country Music Awards. Her newest single “Flower Shop” is now available on all streaming platforms.
Abby Lindsey's Top Six
What makes Nashville special to you? I dreamt my whole life of living here to pursue this dream. It was never a question or an “if I move to Nashville” type thing. I always knew I was going to do it, somehow some way and just to be here, living it – doing my thing and calling this place home, I can’t tell you how special that feels. How would you say your hometown of Van Buren, Arkansas differs from Nashville? Well for starters, my hometown is still a dry county – one of the few left in Arkansas. My hometown is also definitely smaller than Nashville and not as near as appealing when it comes to the food scene. But I will always love the place that raised me. Say you had a completely free day in Nashville—no work allowed. What would you be doing? I would be sleeping in late for sure and then probably go get a coffee, take a drive through Leiper’s Fork with the windows down, do some shopping, get a massage, and then grab some Italian food for dinner because carbs are always a good idea. What are some of your favorite Nashville restaurants? I love Two Ten Jack, North Italia, Taco Mamacita, Butcher & Bee, and Edley’s BBQ – so many great options to choose from it’s hard to narrow it down. Is there a place you haven't ate you have been dying to go? I haven’t tried Sixty Vines downtown yet and it’s on my list. I have a birthday coming up so I think that might be the go-to. Of course we love your style, any favorite Nashville shops? Zara just opened in Nashville so I am a frequent repeat offender haha! I also love Apple and Oak, Alexis & Bolt, The Golden Slipper, and Posh!
One Thing About Nashville
What excites you most about the Nashville music scene right now? The excitement in the air every time I’m out at a show or a writer’s round is so contagious. After a year of unknowns and cancelled events due to COVID, it’s so exciting to be back doing what I love and watching my friends and favorite artists getting to do the same.
Do you have a favorite music venue? The Ryman is magical every single time you step foot into that place, doesn’t matter who is playing. It’s incredible to be in audience. Favorite place to go on date night? My fiancé and I love Two Ten Jack – it was where we had our second date and I have been obsessed ever since. What grocery stores do you shop? Mostly Trader Joe’s, but Publix is a must for some particular items. Best Steak? Bourbon Steak does an amazing job and the ambiance is unmatched. Favorite Nashville Chef? Chef Tony at Yolan is out of this world, not to mention he’s a Michelin star chef – so cool to have that in Nashville.
