We asked New York City hotelier Lyon Porter to give us a behind-the-scenes tour of his latest property, Urban Cowboy Nashville, featured in our May/June 2016 issue. Every detail of this high-design haven, located in a 19th-century manse in historic East Nashville, has a story: from the custom wallpaper and the intricate inlaid wood walls to a common room dedicated to the city's thriving music scene.
