    Let Kelly Clarkson Move You: The Deep Cuts

    She’s back! Kelly Clarkson debuted her highly anticipated new single “Love So Soft” this morning. The singer took to her socials over the last week to tease the new single with imagery and short clips of the track. Then yesterday, she teased the hashtag #MoveYou accompanied by a clip of what sounds like another track causing the internet to go into a frenzy. “Is a full Clarkson album on the way?,” “Are we getting a double dose of new Kelly goodness?” This morning, along with Clarkson’s new fiery single, she dropped the emotional new ballad “Move You,” along with the artwork (seen below) and title of her upcoming album. When talking…

    20 Things Learned from My 20’s

    I haven’t been in my 20’s for a few years now. In fact, in November I’ll celebrate another year into my 30th decade of life. And while I am enjoying my 30’s and the new responsibility they bring, I spend a lot of my time these days mentoring fresh-faced 20 year-olds, who are looking for the “meaning of life.” I’m no expert –and certainly no life coach– but I enjoy helping others navigate those ten wild self-discovery years known as your 20’s. If for no other reason, to remind myself. Turning 30 was both terrifying and empowering. For me, the ten transitional years before were about figuring out what it…

    Slim & Husky’s Pizza Beeria Dishes It Up

    SLIM & HUSKY PIZZA BEERIA SERVES UP MADE-TO-ORDER PIZZA FROM IT’S FIRST NASHVILLE LOCATION IN NASHVILLE’S NEW BUCHANAN ARTS DISTRICT As a former resident of Nashville’s Germantown neighborhood, I like to follow the establishments popping up in that area. Especially when I can get my eat on. Slim & Husky’s Pizza Beeria has been on my radar for a while, but when it finally opened its doors in March I was skeptical that it was worth the long lines I’d heard were piling up down Buchanan Street. I was wrong. When I stopped by one day after work to experience the “life changing” slice of awesome, I arrived to a…

    Summer Style Essentials

    SUMMER HEATS UP WITH MEN’S SUMMER STYLE THAT TAKES SHABBY TO CHIC AND MAKES MEN & LADIES SWOON. Every guy has been there. You start flipping through an old issue of GQ magazine that’s been sitting on your desk for months and, “Eureka!,” you have a fashion revelation. Immediately, you run to your closet and start layering your looks to create the perfect ensemble to bring you from drab to fab. Day-after-day, you get more daring with your looks and then something terrible happens. Summer starts.  Each summer, I weep my most fashionable tears, as I move my lightweight jackets and high-top sneakers to the back of the closet. There they sit…

    Music Monday: Ultimate Cassadee Pope Collection 

    Last week, Listen! It’s Vetrano launched the new Music Monday feature on the blog, which gives me a chance to share my favorite tunes and collections of music with my readers. Last Monday’s playlist included my picks for the hottest songs of the summer [listen to that here]. This week, to celebrate the release of Cassadee Pope‘s new single “I Am Invincible,” I’ve compiled the ultimate collection of Cassadee Pope music — that every fan should have on repeat all week long, until the release of her new song. That’s not all though. As most of you know, Cassadee is one of my dearest friends and so that’s why she’s taking over Listen!…

    Back To Reality: How To Recover from Vacation

    After a three week vacation, soaking up the Destin, Florida sun, eating fancy and delicious foods, drinking my weight in booze and enjoying summer festivities, I returned to work mode this week. Let me tell you, nothing smacks you in the face quite like getting “back to reality.” Well except perhaps those Housewives who literally smack each other in the face on their reality shows. Waking up before 10 a.m., sweating through an hour of cardio at the gym and answering emails all day can really be a buzz kill. It’s a sad truth, but most of us cannot stay on a perma-vacation –unless you’re somehow a part of the Kardashian empire– and…

    Live Or Die (Feat. Amanda Valentine)

    The third episode of Listen! It’s Vetrano features a familiar face to my channel: Amanda Valentine. When Amanda returned to Nashville after her first stint on Season 11 of Project Runway in 2013, she stopped by to chat and help me pick celebrity superlatives. Now, upon the return of my web series –and after a return to the fashion competition series’ 13th season landed her in the runner up position– Valentine is back on the my channel. This time around, we play the popular YouTube game ‘Live or Die’ and gossip about Bravo celebrities. See who goes down in flames in the all new Listen! It’s Vetrano in the video above. After you watch the…

    Best Burgers: Nashville

    When you’re in search of the best burgers in Nashville, V for Vetrano comes to your rescue. As a self-appointed burger aficionado, and after many visits to the best (and worst) dining in Music City, I often get asked about where to eat. A tough question when you’re dealing with picky eaters with tons of dietary or preferential restrictions. But there is one thing that never fails: burger places. So long as the menu offers a vegetarian (typically a black bean) burger option, you can always turn to the American classic. As Nashville grows and new dining options pop up on each block corner, it might be tough to decide which ones are…

    Nashville Notables: Leslie Fram

    In Nashville, hit songs fill the streets like water on a rainy day and stars are easy to find in the city’s top establishments, but there’s more to Music City than might initially meet the eye. A leader in America’s professional landscape, Nashville is home to many start-ups, large corporations and crucial industries. And while it’s fun to learn more about our favorite celebrities; those that spend most of their time in front of cameras or behind microphones sharing their voices, it’s the people behind them that are making the difference. In an effort to give readers a well-rounded view of the city I call home, I am launching “Nashville Notables,” an interview series with…

    Feys Lift: Tasteful Spaces

    It’s 6 o’clock. I’m hungry, I’m antsy and I’m trying to figure out if my new bright blue Cole Haan shoes are too loud for my outfit. I need to choose from the many Nashville restaurants a place to eat dinner, finding somwhere that will satisfy both my appetite and my requirement for good lighting. With a glass of wine in hand and Uber on their way, I make a decision and give Bugsy a kiss goodnight. How did I come about my decision you may be wondering. I believe that pairing great food with inspirational design can make magic, which is more difficult than you might expect. Often times…

    Hollywood With A Touch of Twang Pt. 2

    When I moved to Nashville almost five years ago, I was a bright-eyed, celebrity obsessed music lover that was anxious to explore all that Music City had to offer. After the first year of settling into my new home, I broke from my music-related blogging (on my music blog Tragic Kingdom) to provide readers with some of my favorite Nashville hot spots and places to add to their itinerary if bumping into country music royalty was on their list of things to do. In fact, it may have been that very post that led to the creation of Listen! It’s Vetrano and the more Lifestyle, Nashville-focused blog you’re reading (and loving, no doubt) today.…
