In order to kick off the launch of Bonnie Rose, we threw a party with her best friends from all around Nashville. Bonnie Rose Presents the Whiskey Room was a place where good friends gathered in an intimate setting (The Bell Tower) for live music, Southern bites, a good laugh, and great whiskey cocktails. This was the perfect setting to reveal Bonnie and tie into the authentic Nashville scene.

Of course, in Nashville the music always comes first! Bonnie’s badass talent lineup was perfect for the evening.

DJ Hish – DJ

DJ Hish’s unique “anything goes” mixing style led him to be a featured DJ in Nashville Lifestyles magazine as one of their ‘Artists and Industry Players To Watch in 2014. Fans hear everything from Johnny Cash to Jay-Z, sounding as if they belonged together in the first place.

Misty Loggins – 1st Opener

From the legendary Ryman Auditorium to The Bluebird Café, audiences have fallen in love with Misty Loggins. This Georgia farm girl continues to entertain sold-out crowds with her award-winning musicianship and dynamic personality.

Ashley McBryde – 2nd Opener/Emcee

Described as raw talent with a whiskey-washed sense of humor, onstage Ashley is the nicest bad girl you’ve ever met.

Whiskey Rose – 3rd Opener

Nashville singer/songwriters Skye Claire and Kristen Kuiper joined forces as Whiskey Rose. With Skye’s rock and roll edge and Kristen’s twangy county charm, Whiskey Rose has a sound that’s all their own.

Nikki Lane – Headliner

“The First Lady of Outlaw Country” turns the vulnerable singer-songwriter stereotype on its ear, crafting songs that crucify ex-boyfriends and have no problem with one-night stands as long as she can bolt town right after.

Misty Loggins, Ashley McBryde, and Whiskey Rose will all continue to represent the brand. For the next six months they will offer Bonnie Rose cocktails to fans and spread the word on their social media channels. These promotions will take place at their performances which tour in the South and anchor heavily in Nashville. If you find yourself in the Music City, keep your eyes out for one of these artists and try a Bonnie Rose cocktail.

In addition to the music there were a variety of activations to engage guests in true Nashville style:

Salon – Scout’s Barbershop

Scout’s, located in East Nashville and owned by veteran stylist Brooke Asbury, provided guests with the option of a straight razor shave, beard trim, neck trim, line-up, and bang trim. Scout’s will provide Bonnie Rose to consumers at hosted events for the next few months.

Tray-Passed Appetizers

There’s nothing that says Southern hospitality like good food, so of course there was plenty on hand: balsamic watermelon bites, fried roasted corn stuffing, hot chicken bites in waffle cones, candied bacon, fried mac and cheese, pulled pork biscuit sliders, and – our favorite – assorted mini tacos (brisket, chicken, fish).
