“Cheekwood is a real jewel in Nashville’s crown, and I’ve been proud to be involved here for nearly 50 years. The art, the history, the beauty of the grounds all come together to make Cheekwood a simply magical place, and I can think of no better legacy to leave than one that will keep that magic going.” – Homer B. Gibbs, Jr.
