My wife and I attended on 16th July and had a great night. Those reviewers who complain about having to stand, the poor quality food, etc, should try a music venue in England. In my country you have to deal with poor acoustics, aggressive drunks and all manner of impediments to a good night. We had a fun time and... More

Arrived late at the show and you stand ! Tried standing in one spot for three hours ? Horrid ! Ok so they relieve you of your money at the door and cram you into a room not large enough and with too few chairs ? This is not cool it is just greedy. The restaurant out the front sells... More

I thoroughly enjoyed Music City Roots at the Factory in Franklin. Many of the restaurants in the Factory have special menus and deals for those attending the show, so we ate at Stoveworks beforehand. There was plenty of seating and it was a very comfortable arrangement. The show itself was different that I expected but in a good way. I... More

I feel sad writing this review but it is an accurate reflection of my experience on the specific night I attended (July 9, 2014.) Music City Roots has relocated to a larger venue, south of Nashville at The Factory in Franklin, TN. The theater is located at the end of a shopping area with restaurants, so it is convenient to...

We appreciate the feedback and we sincerely regret you didn't have the experience you hoped for. Just a few notes relevant to your concerns so that future visitors understand our venue. This show was the biggest audience we've ever had, with a guest list of more than 500 people and total attendance of more than 1,000 - all in a... More

Consistently great shows. The best in local and national americana music. I love the shows and the Loveless venue. It's moving to Franklin, so that will change !

We got to see one of the last shows in The Barn next to the Loveless Cafe. we saw 5 bands that were all amazing. it was being telecast for a live radio show which was alot of fun. Nashville certainly has some amazing songwriters and singers.

I've done this now for four years. The entertainment never disappoints or surprises. The atmosphere is great for all ages. Food is excellent. There really aren't bad seats, however, you could have to stand if you don't get there early. We try to get there by 6:15 to reserve a spot, then socialize, grab food etc. Great place to take...

Every Wednesday evening they have four different musical groups. The talent is always excellent. Each plays a set and makes way for the next. Go to the web page to see who is playing. We go there at least once a month. You cannot beat the value. IMPORTANT NOTE: Music City Roots is currently at the Loveless Café Barn about... More
