NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) - It takes limes, lemons and oranges to make a beautiful juice and it takes lyrics, melody and rhythm to make a beautiful song.

A Nashville woman has found that perfect combination.

You need a certain juice to sing in public. Celeste Krenz has it in several ways.

The juice is what she sells at her five shops around Nashville called The Urban Juicer, colorful, creative and healthy places with one thing in common.

“All but two of the people who work here are musicians,” said Krenz.

It’s not a coincidence. She said she hires musicians because they’re creative and they’re go-getters, the kind of people she wants to be around.

She once loved her time on the road singing. She made 11 albums, but realized family mattered more.

“When my son turned nine, I decided I wanted to stay home,” said Krenz.

So like the out-of-work musicians she now hires, she too needed something to help pay the bills – juice and music makers.

Who better to cut, slice and creatively spice those fruits and veggies.

All in a time of need.

“For the musicians like me, it’s great. I’ve been out of work since March, no gigs, but thanks to her, she’s giving us a second wave.”

With 11 albums, Krenz is used to photo shoots, but today’s was all business and just about Urban Juicer.
