*NEWS* American Girl Reveals Nashville Dolls
Nashville's newest aspiring artist is young, blonde and plastic.
On Thursday, new American Girl doll, Tenney Grant, hits stores. As with all American Girl dolls, Tenney comes with a story: she's a singer-songwriter pursuing her dreams in Music City. In developing Tenney's character, American Girl and author Kellen Hertz consulted with Erika Wollam Nichols, who runs the Bluebird Cafe, and artist manager Denise Stiff, who's worked with Alison Krauss and Gillian Welch, among others. They also searched for singer-songwriters to compose music inspired by the doll. Songs were chosen from nine girls and will be featured in the "Tenney" books as well as on American Girl's YouTube channel.
