“My husband and I have been wanting more nature for a long time,” she explained. “We were kind of ready to not be in a city anymore.”

“I am just loving the fact that my Christmas movie characters have rubbed off on me,” she said. “I think it’s just a wonderful example of life imitating art.”

“I’m gonna have a Christmas tree up probably next week. Let’s get this going,” she said.

“Memphis and Nashville are both entertainment cities. They’re known for music. Being from L.A. and being an entertainer, it’s nice to have creative people around,” she said.

“For me, honestly, it’s mostly about the backyard,” McKellar continued.

McKellar, one of many stars who recently switched from The Hallmark Channel to the new Great American Family network, has lived in L.A. for most of her life but knew it was time to make a change. Working on Christmas movies has also gotten her excited for the holiday season.

The publication noted that the actress and her husband, Scott Sveslosky, moved to a Nashville suburb as they are still interested in the arts and music scene…

McKellar joins a growing list of celebrities who have been vocal about leaving California for various reasons. Matthew McConaughey and wife Camila Alves moved their three children to Texas.

“It’s been great,” Alves said of the change. “It really embodies our belief system, especially the ones I grew up with, like going to church every Sunday, saying ‘yes ma’am’ or ‘no, sir.’”
