Strategic thinking, creative results.

There’s a great energy about Nashville, especially today. But there’s still a small-town charm about it that just blows people away. There’s a real generosity and there’s an openness and excitement about working together – and creating something better as a result. That’s the inspiration for Westwood Avenue. We want to bring the same collaboration, the same freedom, to creative marketing.

This week On The Avenue, the results are finally in and Trey Tucker had some MAJOR success at the Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon.

Out of all men racing, he placed 64th. Out of all people racing (TENS of thousands of people, might I add) Trey placed 77. I mean… is that not CRAZY? His finish time for the 13 mile race was only 1 hour and 28 minutes. Trey is too humble to brag, so we’ll just have to do it for him! That is one AMAZING feat, a
