It’s no secret that Nashville has established itself as “Music City” and “the country music capital of the world.” With an esteemed reputation like that, the city has no choice but to back it with live music, right? From concert halls to the plethora of honky tonks downtown, it can be incredibly difficult to decide where to spend a night out, especially if you’re visiting from out of town. However, the good news is that Nashville is the birthplace of country music, so, no matter where you decide to go, you’re likely going to hear some great music!
When it comes to Nashville live music, you, of course, have to stop at one of the best bars on Broadway for a live country music experience unlike any other. From live performances by local artists to surprise visits from country music superstars, there are endless reasons to experience live music in Nashville. Here's why it’s an experience unlike anywhere else.
The Venues are Full of Character and Energy
What many don’t realize is that where you’re going is just as important as whom you’re going to see! The venue where you experience live music comes with its own vibe, sound, and story to tell. Just think about all the factors that play into defining a venue. Some venues are loved for the intimacy they provide, some are loved for the amazing acoustics, and then, some venues are famously known for the bands and musicians that perform there. No matter how you look at it, each venue has its own unique vibe and energy that’s created by the music within its walls.
Opening Acts Expose You to New Music
When you go to live concerts to see your favorite music artists, you typically see a few opening acts before the headliner comes out, and it is the opening acts that build up the anticipation for the main performance. But the cool thing about opening acts is that, sure, they may not be who you primarily came to see, but in waiting for the headliner, you’re being exposed to new artists and new sounds. Inadvertently, you just became a fan of a band or artist you had no clue existed. Before you know it, you’ll then be looking up concerts for the performers who were once opening acts!
There’s Always a Chance a Country Music Artist May Drop By
Los Angeles may be famous for celebrity spottings of movie stars and music artists, but in Nashville, there’s always that chance of running into your favorite famous country music artists at some of the bars with live music in Nashville, especially downtown on Broadway. Bars like Legend’s Corner are famously known to have country music superstars drop by and do an impromptu performance. Just imagine being at one of the best bars on Broadway and your favorite artist drops by... It will be a live music experience you’ll never forget!
The Music is Diverse Alongside Its Country Roots
You may be a little bit country, and the person next to you may be a little bit rock ‘n’ roll, nonetheless, the variety and diversity of music in the city has a little something for everyone. True enough, Nashville is famously known for its country music, but Nashville’s overall music scene is thriving with several genres of music that may not have even realized. Outside of country music, lovers of music can also expect to hear live music in the genres of blues, jazz, R&B, bluegrass, southern gospel, classical, and rock. And, believe it or not, artists of these different genres also live in Nashville as well, not just the country music artists.
Nashville... There’s No Comparison
When it comes to live music experiences, there’s no place like Nashville, Tennessee. Not only from the perspective of the city’s long history of performances at iconic venues like the Grand Ole Opry and The Ryman Auditorium, but also from the perspective of smaller venues. Of course, the opportunities to hear Nashville live music are endless but finding the right venue to hear it will all depend on what type of experience you’re looking for.
