Reese Witherspoon’s Draper James Retail Store Adds Brown For Music Curation

Nashville’s Anastasia Brown, music supervisor and entertainment executive, has been tapped by Reese Witherspoon to curate music for “SOUTHERN SOUNDCHECK,” a monthly playlist for Witherspoon’s online Southern specialty store, Draper James.


According to Reese, the music of the South is quintessential to “hosting a cocktail party or going on a road trip. The playlist is (almost!) as important to us, as what we’re wearing. Lucky for us, we’ve got a good friend to help us choose the tunes.” Witherspoon chose Anastasia Brown because she “is a music industry superstar who has music supervised films and television series that have garnered Oscar, Grammy, Dove, and Emmy wins and nominations.”

Brown has worked on projects including The Shack (Lionsgate), Hot Pursuit (New Line Cinema), The Americans (FX), The Darkest Hour (New Regency), Footloose (Paramount), August Rush (WB), It’s Complicated (Universal Pictures), For the Love of Music: The Story of Nashville (Kings of Leon, Black Keys, Kris Kristofferson, Vince Gill, Emmylou Harris), Taken (Sci-Fi), The Darkest Hour (Regency), and more.
