Former LSU cornerback Kristian Fulton made use of the offseason to open a store and creative design studio with his brother, Keith, in North Nashville.

The Trenches opened up in the spring, and is located at 906 Buchanan St. Fulton, selected in the second by the Tennessee Titans in the second round of the 2020 NFL Draft, said that the decision had to do with life off the football field and already having what he needed to put his idea into action.

In the store, there are sewing and embroidery machines to help young designers and they also sell clothing, shoes and art made by local Black designers.

“You know football doesn’t last forever,” Fulton told reporters. “I just wanted to get started off the field early. Why not? I have the resources, so that was my outlook on it.”

The Fulton brothers are originally from New Orleans, and liked the general feeling they got from the North Nashville area.

“We wanted to make our presence felt in the city and this community because this is something we plan on doing for a long time,” Keith Fulton said.

Though Fulton has a NFL career that keeps him plenty busy, he tries to be present in business as much as he possibly can.

“It’s no point of being in the community and not actually being there,” he said. “I try to make it over here as much as I can just in case I do run into someone who may recognize me or just want to talk.”
