Country music icon Alan Jackson and wife Denise‘s eldest daughter, Mattie Jackson Selecman, has been through the unthinkable. In early September, she lost her husband of less than a year, Ben Selecman, due to traumatic brain injury he suffered while on vacation in Florida.
Despite her intense personal pain, Mattie is pushing forward and dedicating herself to helping others. Mattie and her friend Brooke Tometich have started a new venture dubbed “NaSHEville.” The pair aim to help women and children in need— specifically orphans, widows, and trafficked women.
“NaSHEville is a brand, a body, and a movement celebrating fierce, grace-filled women of Nashville and calling them to share their stories and gifts with other SHE’S of our city,” the official website reads.

“I’ve always been a girl who knew I could do anything — anything I set my mind to or that God had in the cards for me,” Mattie shared in a statement. “Now, that anything is Nasheville — a brand and mission that tells all women in Nashville that same truth. The truth that we are here to encourage each other, through successes and failures, joys and losses. The truth that through something as fundamental as clothing, we can help the broken and give back to “she’s” who are truly in need.”
Obviously, Alan Jackson is extremely proud of his daughter!
“My daughter Mattie has a new mission and venture that gives back to women and orphans in need. Go check out @nasheville_ and support strong women like her, turning their great pain into a great purpose. #ProudDaddy #ProudOfAllMyGirls #NaSHEville,” Alan captioned the photo of his wife and three daughters (Dani, Mattie, Ali).
Way to go, Mattie and Brooke! We hope these two and their Nasheville cause make a big impact on those they wish to help.
