Hosts Lex and Alana LeBlanc

Twin sisters Lex and Alana LeBlanc (Lex is oldest by only two minutes!) are two of HGTV’s freshest faces, working hard to give their clients the home of their dreams while simultaneously giving their current home a facelift in hopes of selling for top dollar. We recently had the pleasure of sitting down with this talented Nashville-based duo to find out what life in the Music City is all about. 

What do you love most about living in Nashville?

Lex: I’m very lucky, because I actually live right next to a grocery store. That sounds crazy, but I get to walk. And moving from New York, I used to love to walk everywhere. So, I love our little neighborhood. It’s just a nice, tight little community.

Do you guys get to see each other very often when you aren’t working?

Alana: Every single day. I live like a mile from her, so I’m always like, "Hey sis, what are you doing? I’m coming over."

Lex: And we both have kids, so they play: playdates, sleepovers, et cetera.

Alana: But she never comes to my house! Ever.

Lex: My house is cute, and yours is so small. There’s only one bathroom!

What Nashville food is a must try?

Lex: If we weren’t vegetarians, we would say hot chicken! But I’d say Rolf & Daughters is my favorite restaurant right now.

Alana: My favorite is Chauhan Ale & Masala. It’s amazing!

What’s your favorite Nashville hotspot?

Lex: I don’t even know. I’m a mom, so we don’t go anywhere except for the park. But Alana is always out and about and on the town. She actually likes to go honky tonkin’!

Alana: Okay…honestly, I do love going down to the honky tonks. Robert’s Western World is my favorite, but I like Tootsie's, too. I only go during the week, because the weekend is too chaotic. And I don’t go like every day…

Lex: It’s strange going to Tootsie's when you’re a local, but Robert’s is great for locals.

Alana: We actually bring our kids down during the day, and we do some dancing. It’s day time, so no one’s down there being crazy yet. The kids are so cute. I’m like, "Where are we going, kiddos?" And they’ll say, "We’re going to the honky tonks! We’re honky tonkin’!"
