Destination of the Day: Bluebird Cafe, Nashville, TN

Destination 2 in the series "Don't Stop The Music"


Nashville is the country and gospel music lover's Mecca.  Music related attractions include: Music Row (home of the region's music industry), The Country Music Hall of Fame (http://countrymusichalloffame.org), Ryman Auditorium (http://www.ryman.com), Music City Walk of Fame (http://www.visitmusiccity.com/walkoffame), and the Grand Ole Opry (http://www.opry.com).  In the evening there are hundreds of small cafes, bars, and restaurants with country music nights dedicated to new music.  One of the better known venues is the Bluebird Cafe.  Opened in 1982, the cafe quickly became the spot for songwriters to try out new material.  The spot became so important and respected that in 2008 the Nashville Songwriters Association International purchased the venue from the original owners and continues to operate it for its members.
