Grand Opening: High Class Hillbilly 

When: Thu., Jan. 12, 6-10 p.m. 2012
With her stellar Walk of Shame — which landed at No. 8 in our 2011 Year in Music issue’s critics’ poll — trad country songstress Nikki Lane made a stylish splash in the local music scene last year. As yours truly pointed out in the aforementioned issue, Lane’s mystique as a performer is bolstered especially by what I called the “wardrobe of a movie star.” It’s a wardrobe that Lane has culled during her time touring the country, and one that she and her bandmate Carey Kotsionis — a noted local songwriter and performer in her own right — share via their Etsy shop, High Class Hillbilly. The shop — which mostly features men’s and women’s boots, jackets, Western wear and accessories — will see the debut of its East Nashville brick-and-mortar storefront tonight with cocktails and a DJ set from Lane’s husband, Joseph Plunket. If you’ll forgive a music writer as he awkwardly fumbles in an attempt to talk about fashion, I’ll simply say that, as its moniker suggests, High Class Hillbilly is classy stuff — at once both glamorous and down-to-earth. Like finely aged moonshine. Or something.
