NASHVILLE, Tenn. (August 11, 2015) – Lee Greenwood, the man behind one of the most well-known patriotic songs in America, “God Bless the U.S.A.,” will sit down one-on-one with Tennessee Radio Hall of Fame DJ and radio host, Keith Bilbrey for an intimate and insightful interview on the all-new series, “Reflections,” this week on Heartland TV, The Family Channel, Angel Two (DISH TV), AMG-TV, Country TV (New Zealand) and DTC Cable.
Greenwood will also join his wife, Kim Greenwood, a former Miss Tennessee and Executive Director of the Miss U.S.A. pageants, to give fans a sneak-peek into their luxurious Franklin, Tennessee, home on NBC’s “Open House”. Tune in August 13-14 for an exclusive, behind-the-scenes look at the haven the country couple and their two sons call “home.” “I think our home reflects our family – we definitely live in every room of our house and love when our kids and all of their friends are here with us,” said Kim Greenwood.
The six-bedroom three-story oasis features a large eat-in kitchen with stunning cream cabinetry, granite and vaulted ceilings, as well as a breathtaking three story marble foyer framed by a swooping staircase and dramatic chandelier. Having purchased the home from a famed Nashville producer, the Greenwood couple re-designed much of the interior themselves, bringing in many design elements meaningful to their family and putting in a backyard deck and pool area that from an aerial view displays a red, white and blue “U.S.A.” across the bottom of the custom pool.
NBC’s “Open House” is described as the ultimate insiders’ guide to real estate and home design. Host, Sara Gore, takes viewers inside the country’s most lavish homes, while some of the best designers from the industry provide advice and inspiration. Celebrity homes that have been featured include John Legend and Chrissy Teigen, Betsey Johnson, Jay Manuel and others.
