About Spirit of Nashville Gifts

What began in 2003 as the award-winning Anderson Design Group calendar of nostalgic illustrations reflecting Nashville’s history and culture has evolved into the defining imagery of the world-renowned Nashville experience. We take pride in working with ADG and pairing the iconic Spirit of Nashville art with the very best production partners.

Jim has worked in the gift industry for more than 35 years and worn many hats. His experience in every role from Sales Rep to Strategic Marketing Manager has provided him the experience and know-how to effectively champion the city he loves to fellow residents and visitors alike. As a Nashville native and Vanderbilt Owen School alumna, Emmie brings hometown pride, finely-tuned marketing acumen, and 25 years experience in managing small businesses to the Spirit of Nashville team. As the former Executive Director of two Nashville environmental nonprofits, Emmie knows the value of protecting and preserving Nashville’s unique character.

We thank you for sharing the Spirit of Nashville!
