Fun nights, great music – A piece of Nashville history and a fun night for friends. Always enjoy going to the Bludbird.
Up-and-coming songwriters come to this Hillsboro legend for a moment in the spotlight. – In Short
No other place in town is more closely associated with the struggles of Nashville songwriters than the Bluebird Cafe. This is where Kathy Mattea and Garth Brooks got their starts. The club owner holds auditions every four or five months for the coveted Sunday Writers' Night slots in search of the next big name. Most folks in the crowd are songwriters, too, although expect a handful of talent scouts and fans of acoustic music.
here's why the Bluebird is great... – Sure, anybody can get their song heard at the Bluebird...but I live in KC, MO...just want to get my song heard...if you're interested in hearing "Give a handshake with the RIGHT hand" ...about a lefty who is taught by his hard-working father that although he writes and throws left handed, he must "song title" 'cause right is RIGHT, right is true, you're saying what you're gonna do when you "song title"... and thanks...anybody know how to get this song to Tim McGraw?...his dad was a lefty...sorry, this forum won't allow website addresses...so google "live band karaoke KC doug nelson" and you'll get my site...I hope
Bluebird Cafe is where you SEE AND HEAR who wrote that Country song. Please SHHHHHHH. We are here to HEAR the music not your conversation. That said, this is a SMALL room that SELLS OUT each show. Many tables (Christine Lavin) )and you must buy food to sit at, Please tip well since this is the waitress income. Great view to the stage except one bar seat I had for Wade Hayes. All the best writters in Nashville try their new songs out here and play songs they have wrote that are famous already.
BEST PART this IS a SMOKE FREE Club.
NOT TO BE MISSED always a great nite at the Bluebird Cafe.

Listen!!!!!! – I can deal with the SHHHHHH!! When you get to sit among the MOST talented and the ones who help them spread the gifts that they have, I could deal with most anything. Walking into the Bluebird itself is magical, Like stepping back in time! You can just feel the presents of the old timers who came through. I say "GOOD JOB" Bluebird, Ill be back to listen to history in the making.
Hear the guys and gals who write the songs – This place pioneered "unplugged". Garth played off a bar stool here. Jimmie Dale Gilmore, Alex Harvey, Joe Ely, Townes Van Zandt and any other contemporary songwriter worth listening to has played this little room. Want to listen to the songwriter that wrote the megahit play his or her own original version? Want to watch the best writers and pickers in town play in a listening room, a venue where you can actually hear the fret work? If you can't come here to listen to the magic in front of you without disturbing the perfomances, you probably don't need to come. In fact, pretend you never heard about this little jewel of the music world so you won't spoil it for the rest of us.
