Another one of our favorite Nashville landmarks is going away forever.
Fontanel in Whites Creek is went under new ownership recently, and it appears they have no interest in maintaining the property. The huge property off Whites Creek Pike has been home to not only the former home of country music legend Barbara Mandrell, but a restaurant, winery, distillery, bed and breakfast, and ampitheater.
Not to mention, the 33,000 square foot mansion was home to our EPIC Demi Lovato #SorryNotSorry House Party in 2017!!
Remember when Billy Ray Cyrus showed up to perform "Achy Breaky Heart" with Demi?
Anyway, the Fontanel Cafe is already closed for "renovations" with no signs of opening again soon. The winery has already moved to the Nashville farmers market. The mansion, which was also home to Kid Rock's annual fish fry, is closed. The bed and breakfast will remain open until October 14th before it closes for renovations for at least a year and a half.
Only the distillery remains open.
RIP Fontanel, we're sad to see you go :(
