Kathie Lee is Putting NYC in the Rear View Mirror


Word is that when Kathie Lee Gifford signs off from NBC’s Today Show, she will not be sticking around the Big Apple.

Gifford is said to be moving to Nashville, where she’s already bought a home.

“Even if you’re just having a dinner party there, invariably people end up at your piano or taking your guitar off the wall, and next thing you know, you’ve written a song and you’re in the studio the next week doing a demo,” she told People of her next step.

“The work that I want to do isn’t here anymore,” she said of New York and life at 30 Rockefeller Plaza. “I am an artist, I’m an actress, I’m a writer, I’m a songwriter, a director now. That’s the stuff that feeds my soul and I know that I’m running out of time to do those things.”

“I’ve become a widow, an orphan and an empty-nester all at once,” she said, referring to husband Frank Gifford’s 2015 passing and her mother’s 2017 death. “There’s nothing really keeping me in this part of the country anymore except for my job.”

We’re sure that Nashville will be happy to have her.
