About us

Our Focus

Our focus is real people, real places, and real Tennessee. Content includes recipes, schools, featured local hot spots, hunting and fishing, arts and entertainment, sports, weddings, travel, and much more!

We are the Tomato Festival of Ripley...we are the International Goat Days Festival of Millington...we are the famed Grand Champion Munford Band...we are music on the Arlington Depot Square...we are the award winning Bobcats of Haywood High School in Brownsville...we are Safe Night Out in Atoka...we are Wells Kitchen of Brighton...we are a morning stroll through the square in Covington...we are a night at the Fair Theatre in Somerville. Cypress is not just a magazine...it's a celebration of our American town; and a tribute to our Southern heritage.

20,000 copies are distributed in high traffic areas and advertiser locations throughout our coverage area. Subscriptions are available, however, the magazine is free at selected locations.

Our Annual Wedding Issue

"When we started to look at the area we wanted to cover with this magazine, we realized just how diverse a population we are-and how very special our people are,' says Lucianne Shoffner, publisher and editor-in-cheif of Cypress Magazine. "We are unabashedly and proudly, Western Tennessee, a part of The South," Shoffner exclaims. We celebrate our towns and heritage.
