June Events – Butterflies, Live Music & More

Join us for these upcoming events!

Alive’s Memorial Butterfly Release

Each year, we remember loved ones who have died with a live butterfly release, symbolizing our lasting love and the renewal of spring. Our family-friendly, drive-through event is back by popular demand for community members to safely pick up their butterfly houses and butterflies to release at home!

Reserve your butterflies today, and join us in Nashville (6/12) or Murfreesboro (6/19). *Orders begin closing June 3.*

Alive & The Bluebird

Join us June 3 for an Alive & The Bluebird show featuring Kent Blazy, Cory Batten, & Danny Myrick! We will be auctioning off a Takamine Garth Brooks GB7C guitar featuring the lyrics of “If Tomorrow Never Comes” (written by Kent Blazy and Garth Brooks) and personalized by Garth himself! Alive & The Bluebird streams live every first Thursday all year long.
