On the hunt for something fun to do this weekend around Green Hills and Belle Meade?

And it wouldn't be a weekend in Nashville without some music in the mix. Other things to do include a free concert by singer-songwriter Mark Schultz in Forrest Hills, a holiday-themed show at the Schermerhorn and a tribute toÂ A Charlie Brown Christmas courtesy of the Jody Nordone Trio at City Winery.
