Visited the iconic Bluebird on a Sunday night. No tickets so we took a chance. Arrived at 4:00. We were about 20th in line. Got it!! So thrilled to see Jesse Labelle. Wonderful performer! Exciting atmosphere!

THIS was our most favorite moment in Nashville.The talent and intimate experience combines for an unforgettable evening. I have never experienced anything better. Tickets are hard to come by as the venue only seats 100 guests. We chose a night rather than an artist as...More

Three of us are coming to Nashville in March. We're interested in Sunday's Songwriter show (the later show). What is the best way to line up for the later show? I know the show is "first come, first serve" but do the people who don't get into the earlier show (the Spotlight show) automatically get in the front of the late show line? Meaning, is there a way that I wouldn't get a ticket to the later show even if I showed up a few hours early?

I would try and get tickets online to guarantee your place as it is a long wait and not a very exciting place to be as it is just a strip mall. Be ready the second they are available as they go quickly!
Does the Bluebird Cafe sell souvenir mugs /tshirts or only online?

There is limited parking in the strip mall that fills up pretty early. We normally park in the parking garage across the street. It is free and covered, so that is nice.
