About us

Our Focus

The focus of Cypress Magazine is finding real people, real places, and real West Tennessee. Content includes recipes, schools, featured local hot spots, hunting and fishing, arts and entertainment, sports, weddings, travel, and much more!

We’re looking for the shinning jewels that make West Tennessee the perfect place to live, work, and visit. Our team is traveling all over the region to bring you content from the Tomato Festival of Ripley and the International Goat Days Festival of Millington to the famed Munford High School Band and the songs of the Bringing the Shoals to Savannah Songwriters Event. 

We’re not just a magazine; we’re a celebration of our southern heritage and a place to find the rural Americana spirit that makes West Tennessee the culturally rich region we love. With 20,000 copies being distributed we want to make sure everyone gets a copy! To make sure you get your copy right to your door, subscriptions are available too!

"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. We are unabashedly and proudly, Western Tennessee, a part of The South," Shoffner exclaims. We celebrate our towns and heritage.
