Beginning in 1982, Amy Kurland opened a 100-seat restaurant in a strip mall outside of downtown Nashville. She added a small stage and all of a sudden, music became a part of The Bluebird Cafe’s every day. Since 2012, the cafe has been making television better by being a key location in ABC’s hit show, Nashville. On any given night, the biggest names in country music will show up to perform and create an experience that few will forget.

If Bluegrass is more your style, The Station Inn is the place for you. Present owner J.T. was first just a regular guy who spent much of his free time listening to a wide variety of performers.

Whether you think you can play with the best of Nashville or you just want to enjoy the musical talents that are performing, The Station Inn could be the place for you.

90 years ago, The Grand Ole Opry didn’t know the legendary status they would soon hold to music artists and fans across the country.

Today the magic continues with artists such as: Dierks Bentley, Carrie Underwood, and Brad Paisley continuously take the stage along with beginners who are just entering the music world.
