Part one of a set of tattoos for Jenn. I really enjoy turning words, or lyrics into imagery. I feel like it breathes more life into the thought, or meaning. For booking, please email me at brandonswansontattoo@gmail.com.

The building at 1514 South St., just off 16th Ave. S., was home to MCA Records during the late ‘80s and early ‘90s, then Giant Records — home to acts like @BlakeShelton, @officialclaywalker, @carlene_carter, Daryle Singletary and Hank Flamingo. Giant folded in 2001, absorbed into Warner Bros., but Doug Johnson had a couple days between when his duties as label president ended and when he had to be out of the office. He decided to spend the time writing songs. He made the best possible use of that time. One day he had Kim Williams over and they wrote @therandytravis’ “Three Wooden Crosses,” and the other day Johnson and Joe Henry wrote @RascalFlatts’ “Skin (Sarabeth).” 📷: @amicitae . . . #songwriting #songwriters #musicrow #countrymusichistory #randytravis #rascalflatts #storybehindthesong #nashvillehistory #nashvilletourist #nashvillemusic #nashvillemusiclife

If you’ve spent a lot of time on Nashville’s #musicrow, you probably know the building at 1308 16th Ave. S. as Jack’s Tracks, or possibly Allentown Studio. It’s a studio where “Cowboy” Jack Clement and later Allen Reynolds set up shop. . Maybe you know about the hit records that came out of here. Kathy Mattea’s “Eighteen Wheels and a Dozen Roses.” @TheCrystalGayle’s “Don’t It Make My Brown Eyes Blue.” All those @GarthBrooks albums. “The Thunder Rolls” was written here. . What you maybe don’t know is that before this building was Jack’s Tracks, it briefly housed a John F. Kennedy Memorial Center Museum and Library, which included more than 30,000 Kennedy-related items collected by none other than Aubrey Mayhew. . Mayhew, probably better known as the owner of Little Darlin’ Records and the producer and co-writer of early Johnny Paycheck sides like “Pardon Me, I’ve Got Someone to Kill,” also was a major collector of Kennedy memorabilia. . At one time, Mayhew proposed a 30-acre Kennedy Memorial Center for Nashville’s Vanderbilt/West End area that would’ve included a museum, public library and 2,500-seat theater. (Like many of Mayhew’s big plans, it never materialized.) Mayhew also once bought the Texas Book Depository building at auction (it was “a good deal,” he said), but it was later foreclosed on. . See, even when you think you know the building, there’s more there than meets the eye. 📷: @amicitae . . . #nashville #musicrow #recordingstudios #garthbrooks #johnfkennedy #jfk #nashvillehistory #historicnashville #experiencenash #nashvillegram #nashvilletourist

I tattooed my Mom the other day during their visit down here in Nashville. Sisu is a Finnish concept described as stoic determination, tenacity of purpose, grit, bravery, resilience, and hardiness and is held by Finns themselves to express their national character. It is generally considered not to have a literal equivalent in English. . . . . . . #americantraditionaltattoo #americanatattoos #traditionalkings #skinarttraditional #tradworkers #tattoopushers #tradworkerssubmission #brightandbold #oldlines #boldwillhold #tattoo #whipshaded #topclasstattooing #spicywhipsociety #besttraditionaltattoo #classictattoo #nashville #nashvilletourist #nashvilletattoo #discovernashville #nashvilletattooartist

As I start my new diet (yes typical New Years attempt) I will be daydreaming of the best steak I’ve ever had and the best dining experience ever !!! I highly recommend the standard in Nashville. #thestandard #nashville #restaurant #finedining #nashvilletourist

Slightly heartbroken that this place was in a strip mall in the middle of a trendy neighbourhood. But cool nonetheless. #nashville #nashvilletourist #nashvilletvshow

Not really sure if I learned a life lesson from 2018. It was like any other year. There were good times, there were bad times. There were changes & something’s remained the same. The most amazing thing about my life, is this person is always there holding my hand. I guess if I had to say something helpful it would be - appreciate people. You never know what the next day may hold so cherish time NOW. Tell that person you love them, tell that person you need them. When you are with that person BE with that person, not somewhere else in your own mind. Life’s biggest flaw is we are too wrapped up in ourselves. We forget there’s over 7 billion other people that live on earth too. My challenge to myself this year is to listen more, be more helpful, get out of my comfort zones if it means being there for someone, make someone feel loved, make someone feel special, nothing for myself, just others.

🌿 IT’S FRIDAY!! Which means we’re doing a “Hi, nice to meet you, here’s random things about myself that you possibly would like to know.” • /1\ my very first Instagram post was of my brother & I (back in 2013😱) but the funny part about this is I had to use my little brothers iPod to check IG because I didn’t own any of the “i’s” I was still rocking a flip phone till 2014 👌🏼 • /2\ I was born in Georgia & lived there for 5 years till we moved to the very middle of Tennessee. I don’t care about football but I will ask to make sure if Georgia has won a game • /3\ I can sometimes be a lot like Sherlock Holmes. Minus the cocky, obnoxious, jerk part. (Don’t you just love him) I’m a quiet observer. My saying that I say to Andrew a lot when I have noticed something & he’s hasn’t “You see Watson, but you do not observe.” Now tell me something about yourself! No matter how interesting or how simple it might be, everyone is welcomed here! 😁 » » » » #fridayintroductions #helloworld #welcometomylife #behindthepicture #followfriday #greenhouse #plantsarelife #betterhomesandgardens #littleaccountlove #boho #mypointofview #falloutfits #homedecoraccount #happylife #storytime #personalstory #life #nashville #nashvillefarmersmarket #nashvillelife #nashvilletourist

Randy Fox’s excellent new book, ‘Shake Your Hips: The Excello Records Story,’ prompted me to seek out the location of the old Excello offices at 177 3rd Ave. N. and its retail outlet, Ernie’s Record Mart, next door at 179 3rd Ave. N. The site of Ernie Young’s label — which released sides by Slim Harpo, Lightnin’ Slim, Lonnie Brooks, Roscoe Shelton, Lazy Lester, Arthur Gunter and others — is now a parking garage. But the R&B and gospel records that came out of here were something special. “Excello carried a special mystique,” Randy writes. “There was a unique, primal power in the way Excello recordings combined the blues, gospel, and hillbilly music.” If you’ve never heard Slim Harpo’s “I’m a King Bee” or “Rainin’ in My Heart,” you’ll want to introduce yourself to the catalog of Excello — and its gospel-leaning sister label, Nashboro. If you know Excello’s music, you’ll definitely want to seek out Randy’s book. . . . #blues #rnb #rnbmusic #nashville #nashvillemusic #musichistory #nashvillehistory downtownnashville #excello #nashvilletourist #historicnashville
