The Best Live Music Venues in Nashville

To reaffirm, when it comes to live music, practically any venue in this town is prone to knock your socks off, so one need not waste precious time deciding between places that offer it. Now while the number of live music venues in Nashville is astounding, that’s not what sets it apart from the competition. Rather, its:

1) The abundance of raw talent


2) The cost to see said talent

To expand on the first point, it’s extremely common to hear live music that sounds better than anything blaring from your favorite radio stations, even at places like the Taco Bell on 2nd. Ave! And the best part? It’s practically taboo for Nashville bars to charge covers, and the few that do are well worth it.

With that said, here are the live music venues you definitely want to check out during your visit to Music City:
