Where to Find the Best Live Music in Nashville

The Headliners

Ryman Auditorium

Ryman Auditorium is one of the most prominent buildings in Music City. Not only have some of the greatest musicians of all time graced the stage at The Ryman, but some of the most famous historical figures as well! Walk in the footsteps of Susan B. Anthony, Theodore Roosevelt, and Harry Houdini when you enter this magnificent venue. One of the main reasons country music fans flock to The Ryman is to experience a show at The Grand Ole Opry!

The Grand Ole Opry

The Grand Ole Opry is home to the show that made country music famous! See the most iconic country artists at Opry at the Ryman. In addition to the boot-scootin’ music you would expect, you can also attend pop concerts, comedy shows, and variety shows in the monumental venue.

Bridgestone Arena

Bridgestone Arena is one of the most highly acclaimed entertainment and sports venues in the country, making it the No. 1 venue for large concerts in Nashville. Experience concerts of all genres ranging from pop icons like the Backstreet Boys to country queens like Carrie Underwood! 

Local Gems

Honky Tonk Highway

Make your way to Honky Tonk Highway, where there’s a party every day! This iconic highway is a string of honky-tonk bars (places with a stage, bubbly drinks, and tons of energy)! As you walk down the row, hear toe-tapping music bouncing off the buildings as crowds line up outside. The free, live music continues from 10 in the morning until three in the morning!

Be on the lookout for amazing talent because music legends like Willie Nelson and Dierks Bentley began their careers on this street! You might just see the next big thing.

Bluebird Cafe

Bluebird Cafe is a songwriter’s haven, where the “heroes behind the hits” are able to shine. Watch the songwriters who are responsible for some of the biggest hits perform their own songs. If you’re interested in playing your own music, you can sign up for an open mic night or audition for a writers night! 

Sometimes, some of the biggest stars will come to enjoy fantastic acoustic music and mingle with the talented songwriters. You might witness the making of a hit when you hang out at Bluebird Cafe!
