“We’re so excited to welcome all members of the Nashville military and veteran community to Got Your 6 VetFest!” said Anne Marie Dougherty, the Chief Executive Officer of the Bob Woodruff Foundation. “This event is all about connection and community: spending time with family, meeting new friends, enjoying some exceptional entertainment together, and connecting our heroes with resources and opportunities that can help them thrive after service.”
The event will be hosted in the Loveless Barn at the iconic Loveless Cafe in Nashville. For more than 70 years, the Loveless Cafe has been offering families and friends a place where they can enjoy a home-cooked Southern meal. Their story began in 1951 when Lon and Annie Loveless opened their front doors to sell fried chicken and biscuits to hungry travelers on Highway 100 in Nashville. Their scratch-made dishes became so popular that they soon converted their home into a restaurant and built a 14-room motel for overnight guests. Many decades later, the iconic neon sign welcomes more than half a million visitors each year and they make up to 10,000 biscuits each day using Annie’s original recipe. Given these roots of big-hearted hospitality, the Loveless Cafe has become a Nashville landmark that stays true to its Southern flavor.
