WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Big, wide-brimmed hats. Pill box hats. Fussy hats. Hats with fox fur and satin trim and emerald-green feathers; hats covered in fruit, birds and ringing bells. Hats that flirt, hats that scold, hats that praise, hats that grieve. Hats that bring power. Hats that sing. These are the hats worn by the "hat queens" of the South-women whose storied lives are woven into the straw, silk, wool and lace that adorn their heads. With soulful, spiritual and joyful music, Crowns celebrates family and faith, love and loss, seeking (and finding) one's true identity. All you have to do is listen.
