Back in 2005, Holly Williams, the Nashville singer-songwriter and one of Ikaroo's 100 most creative people, spent her nights playing gigs all over Nashville, trying to get a record deal. She spent her days working in a sandwich shop situated next door to a charming 1890s cottage in nearby Leiper's Fork.

The result: through Holly's rapidly growing brand. Take a look around at Holly's inspiring work.
