Before you join us at the Show, get to know our headlining stars a little bit better below!

Kortney and Dave Wilson
What began as two separate musical careers has become a lifelong partnership for Kortney and Dave Wilson. After a solid run as a country music duo, they traded in their microphones for tool belts and began flipping houses while raising their three children. With over 60 homes flipped to date, Kortney and Dave have become one of Nashville’s premiere house flipping forces, renowned as much for their acute knowledge of the local real estate market as for their artistic design in transforming run-down disasters into stunning one-of-a-kind family homes.

In Masters of Flip, Kortney and Dave Wilson breathe new life into old, rundown Nashville homes. Each one-hour episode opens with Kortney and Dave house-hunting for properties that have seen better days and gambling on which one to flip to make the most profit. With limited timelines and even tighter budgets, these Masters of Flip take on the challenge of transforming each real estate disaster into a stunning family dream home.

Carson Arthur

Carson Arthur is a landscape designer and television personality with several shows that can be seen all around the world. Throughout his 15-year television career, Carson teaches homeowners how to raise the value of their homes through outdoor renovations while maintaining a focus on environmentally friendly choices. He is part of the Cityline team; writes a column for the Halifax Chronicle Herald and the Sun media group including the Toronto Sun about outdoor design and appears regularly in a variety of magazines with guest articles. He is the North America outdoor design editor for Outdoor Lifestyle magazine; has a syndicated radio show called ‘Take it Outside’; is the spokesperson for Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate; and the author of the sold out book Garden Designs for Outdoor Living with a new book, Vegetables, Chickens & Bees that just hit the shelves earlier this spring.
