FRANKLIN, Tenn. – As the height of summer travel season approaches natural questions arise from visitors, and a new video series from Visit Franklin aims to answer them as “frankly” as possible. In the style of a moderately funded late night, cable access talk show, Frankly Franklin with host Frank Franklin, tackles as frankly as possible the most frequently asked questions travelers and locals alike have about Franklin, Tennessee.

Each episode of the 14-part series will focus on answering an individual question, such as “what is there to do in Franklin, where do the locals go in Franklin,” or “where to get the best BBQ in Franklin.” With house band Rodeo & Juliet providing a theme song you’ll have in your head for days, host Frank Franklin takes his show from the stage of the Franklin Theatre to the streets of Franklin to answer these frank questions and more.

“Frankly, I’m honored to share my robust knowledge of all things Franklin,” said Frankly Franklin host Frank Franklin. “These are the important issues of our time, and visitors to Franklin deserve frank answers.”

The new series will be used to humorously, and memorably, answer the most frequently asked questions received from visitors to Franklin and Williamson County. The Frankly Franklin with Frank Franklin series can be found at

Frank Franklin and Rodeo & Juliet will be present for a meet and greet and live music performance from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., Tuesday, May 22 at the Visitor Center (400 Main Street, Ste. 130) in downtown Franklin.

Ellie Westman Chin, President and CEO of Visit Franklin added, “We are always looking for fun ways to stand out, and this new series featuring Frank Franklin is most certainly a fun new way to answer many of the questions we hear from visitors.”
