The collection, which was designed by Karen herself, is a unique fusion of sexy, bold pieces that are Nashville inspired with a rock and roll sensibility.

“We’re always looking to offer our customers product and personalities reflective of what’s hot and, in the world of country music, there are very few artists who are as relevant today as Karen Fairchild,” said Russell Nuce, EVINE Live’s Chief Strategy Officer.

“Karen has worked closely with our team from the beginning, directing almost every aspect of the collection’s design. We’re excited to add Fair Child to our growing proprietary fashion business.”

“Fair Child is a blend of everything I love,” said Karen Fairchild. “It’s a collection of rich textures, details and embellishments in iconic pieces that are easy to wear, glamorous and affordable. These versatile pieces are made to be worn together through mixing, matching and layering.”

Premiering October 27th at 8pm and 9pm ET on EVINE Live, Fair Child by Karen Fairchild will offer a number of exclusive styles designed by Karen.

Combining details and embellishments like studs, embroidery, and sequins, along with a variety of textures and silhouettes the line forms into one sleek and seamless collection. Fair Child will include jackets, tops and bottoms, dresses, and statement pieces for endless mixing and matching possibilities.

Karen Fairchild is one of the four founding members of Little Big Town, a country group that formed out of the Nashville music scene in the late 90s.

June 28, 2015

Country star Jennifer Nettles is collaborating with American West Jewelry to debut a collection on QVC July 5, according to the network. And showing our ignorance of the Nashville sound, we have never heard of her!

The jewelry line will offer designs that combine sterling silver, brass, leather and suede with gemstones. Nettles will be on the air presenting the collection and sharing her inspirations for the design of the pieces.

We like her “Believe” pendant.

Nettles has won five ASCAP awards for her songwriting abilities, and in 2008 individually received a Grammy Award, ACM Award & CMA Award for penning the emotionally charged, platinum-selling hit Stay. At the 2009 ACM Awards, Nettles was honored with the Crystal Milestone Award for being the first female artist to be the solo songwriter on an ACM Song of the Year winner since 1972.

In 2014, Nettles enlisted the help of esteemed producer Rick Rubin to release her highly anticipated debut solo album That Girl which went to #1 on the country charts. The album was recorded at the famous Shangri-La Studios in Malibu, California.

In February of 2015, Nettles made her Broadway debut to rave reviews as Roxy Hart in the Tony Award-Winning record-breaking musical Chicago.

Nettles has been seen all over the media spectrum, with performances ranging from President Barack Obama’s inauguration celebration to Oprah, Good Morning America, Ellen, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno & CNN Heroes, as well as on the cover of Redbook Magazine among others.

At the 2007 AMAs, Beyonce joined Sugarland on stage for a countrified version of her hit single, Irreplaceable. Two years later, at The Kennedy Center Honors, Nettles paid tribute to icon Bruce Springsteen, covering Glory Days & I’m On Fire with Ben Harper.

In 2010, Nettles, Katy Perry & Keri Hilson opened VH1 Divas: Salute The Troops with a playful & sexy reprise of the WWII-era hit Boogie-Woogie Bugle Boy & also treated fans to a show-stopping performance of You and I with Lady Gaga at the 2011 Grammy Nominations Live concert.
