If I can't get tickets to the Bluebird, this place is my current "go to" for friends visiting from out of town. It's an authentic experience with Nashville songwriters. It is not as intimate as the Bluebird. The good news is (unlike the Bluebird) you...More

Best time I've ever had listening to new music. The hits are great, but the stories, passion, and talent of these writers is an inspiration for anyone chasing dreams.
