Nancy Lee Andrews, International Photographer
Former Ford model turned international photographer Nancy Lee Andrews spent her early educational days, as she refers to them, in front of the camera. She became more interested in clicking the shutter rather than being the subject. One day while working for Milton Green and asking too many questions about photography, he handed her a camera and showed her how to load film and told her to go out and shoot and bring the film back. That was the beginning of a life-long love affair with the camera.
A Dose of Rock ‘n’ Roll, a coffee table book, reveals the intimate access to music royalty that was accorded to Nancy Lee Andrews while she was engaged to Ringo Starr for six years. The photographs, beginning in 1970, present assorted iconic images that have become an historical imprint of that era. Among legendary names pictured in this compilation besides Ringo are John Lennon, George Harrison, Keith Moon, Bob Dylan, Eric Clapton, and Gregg Allman, to name a few. Currently, her photographs can be seen for the cover of Billy Ray Cyrus memoir, Hillbilly Heart, for Amazon. Also, her work can be seen on the cover of Ruth Pointer’s memoir, I’m Still Excited.
The Tennessee State Museum originated her exhibition in the summer of 2008, A Dose of Rock ‘n’ Roll and a Pinch of Country Since than she has produced many gallery presentations in New York City, SoHo, Long Island, Atlanta, Phoenix, Tulsa, and Sea Bright, New Jersey. She garnered great success with her gallery exhibit in Hamburg, Germany. She is presently the Publication Director for the Tennessee State Museum for their epic book, The Civil War Flags of Tennessee, due in Fall of 2018.

Upon her return to Tennessee, she worked for several shows on The Nashville Network in various roles including reporter, producer, and talent. She then worked 11 years for NewsChannel 5 in Nashville, Tennessee. While producing breaking news in 2005, Brown witnessed the devastation of tornadoes that ripped through parts of her native city. That event helped cement her desire to find a way to serve Gallatin more directly. In 2006, she became the Executive Director of the Gallatin Area Chamber of Commerce. Under her leadership, the Gallatin Chamber increased membership and member participation, established numerous new events and created innovative marketing and networking opportunities.

Nina Covington, Artist, Activist
Nina Covington is a Nashville based artist, activist, and provocateur. She has always known that it was her job to tell stories. She started out as a model who told stories in front of the camera of others. A pivotal moment came when Nina realized she can only tell half of the story as a model; the photographer always tells the other half. Nina began wanting more control, so she began taking self-portraits which eventually led her to photograph other people.
In all of Nina’s work, she gets down to basics. Her images are stripped down, honest, and dark. From her fine art equestrian photography to her long exposures, she plays in the shadows. Nina’s work is cohesive, as each detail in the execution of her photographs adds to the story she’s telling. Most importantly, she uses her work to give voice to those who step in front of her camera and bring to light social issues and injustices.
