Hillbilly Love

Hillbilly Love's CEO & Founder, Lynda Weingartz grew up on the Upper Cumberland Plateau in Allardt, TN.  In the foothills of the Smokey Mountains in Knoxville, TN she attended and studied at the University of Tennessee for her BS in Communications. As a child Lynda always had a flair for fashion and a passion for art, movies and music. These interests drove Lynda's decision to embark on a notable career in the entertainment industry. Hillbilly Love is a direct reflection of Lynda's personal style, southern charm and dedication to serving others.

"There is a strong and on-going global awareness, interest and appreciation for the southern way of life, arts and history. This cultural evolution is driving a new generational awareness of, and demand for freshly-inspired forms of fashion, art and entertainment that are influenced in some way by Hill-Folk and Mountain People from around the world. Our goal is to share the message of Hillbilly Love, while creating positive opportunities to serve our communities, and to support our children's future." — Lynda Weingartz, CEO & Founder – Hillbilly Love

What is important to the Hillbilly Love lifestyle…

  1. Great music, culture and values that tell the true stories of life.
  2. Enjoying the finer things in life that money can't buy.
  3. Having a good time with family & friends.
  4. Spending time in the outdoors; either on the water, in the woods or on the playing field.
