  • Awesome and historical venue. The best of bluegrass and more. Located in The Gulch, along with upscale shops, restaurants and more. Get there before 9:00 with the music starts. The crowd thinned out while I was there and I was able to move from the walls to the tables.
  • Went on a Monday night and saw Carl Jackson, Larry Cordle, Val Storey and friends...they were incredible! Best deal in town to see musicians like this. Awesome classic country and bluegrass music. Have some craft beer on tap and some popcorn to top off your night. One of my favorite places I was able to visit in Nashville!!
