THE GLOW Awards

Presented by First Horizon Bank

GLOW may be Nashville’s Brightest Christmas Experience, but Music City is already one of the brightest and best in the country.

GLOW Awards (First Horizon Update)

The real reason Nashville glows is because of its people. The GLOW Awards, presented by First Horizon Bank (you might know them as First Tennessee Bank), celebrates those who help make Middle Tennessee glow year-round through their dedication to selfless service and giving back.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR NOMINATIONS

We are in the process of reviewing all nominations and will be reaching out to finalists for each category shortly. Check back on Monday, Nov. 18 to help us vote in the official honorees to be announced by Friday, Nov. 29.

What do selected honorees receive?

In addition to featuring one of the country’s tallest Christmas trees, millions of lights adorning larger-than-life sculptures, epic ice skating and tubing experiences, a life-size Santa’s workshop and many more immersive activities designed to create memories for all ages, GLOW also programs turn-key party solutions, so you can share the magic with your team, family and friends in one of our luxury box suites.

Each selected honoree will receive a private party for up to 20 people—plus the opportunity to act as the Guest of Honor for a ceremonial lighting of GLOW’s 4 million lights.
