  • if you have wondered the history of country and rock country music this is a must see. The building alone is breath taking and the history of the building was amazing. Prepare to spend some time...  more »
  • Wish I could have seen a cocert there! Great displays and history. So glad it was saved! Can't wait to come back to see a show!  more »
  • Historic venue in downtown Nashville that offers a good variety of performances. We went to see the Fisk Jubilee singers and India Arie while in town for a few days and both were excellent. We bought less expensive seats in the balcony area which was fine for viewing and acoustics; the only downside was the seating is basically church pews with not enough space if there are above average sized people in your row (I think there are 6/bench), which means you might need to be comfortable with rubbing thighs with a stranger, and everyone has to move out of the pew into the aisle to let people in and out.
  • Quite possibly THE best place I have ever been to watch a concert, no matter who you like. It is acoustically correct from every seat in the house. The site lines are great from almost every seat. Highly recommend going to see your favorite artist at this venue. We happen to see Gary Clark, Jr. who put on quit a show.
