“You can't go wrong for 15 bucks.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 May 2014

Every Wednesday evening they have four different musical groups. The talent is always excellent. Each plays a set and makes way for the next. Go to the web page to see who is playing. We go there at least once a month. You cannot beat the value.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Music City Roots is currently at the Loveless Café Barn about 15 miles southwest of downtown Nashville. This summer they are moving to a new location in Franklin, a town about 15 miles south of downtown Nashville.

Great venue at the Liveless Barn, but they are moving the show to Franklin,TN. We saw four groups that were phenomenal.

“A must see!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 April 2014

Music City Roots is a live radio broadcast show and it is moving from the Loveless Cafe Barn to another venue soon. However, the Loveless venue is wonderful and I'd be sad to see this move. We ate fried chicken, drank a beer and enjoyed some of the best country music I've heard. The performers for the evening were excellent musicians and the love they had for each other was real. It was a great down home treat and Jim Lauderdale was an excellent host.

“What a treat!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 March 2014

This was our second visit to the Wednrsday show. The first time, in 2011 , we had a front row, center seat to first rate musicians (Tiller's Folly and Sarah Jarosz continue to be our favorites...check them out!!). That night will be one of our favorite music memories of all time.
This past week, we enjoyed great musicians' talents, however, even though we were there at the 6:00 opening, we sat in the second row to the left of the stage (on the right would be the same) which resulted in a poor choice. The first four rows were all reserved seats. We were right behind the camera man and a big post,. There were also two other photographers that interferred (often!) by standing in front of us (we were not sure if they were affiliated with the show, nevertheless, it was very rude and unprofessional). Our party of four finally moved to the back and stood, much to our dismay, a lady in front of us chatted the entire time. We came to listen to great music, which this venue does not disappoint, however, the behavior of others' (lack of) social skills can intefere with what could have been another positive experience.
A highlight of the night was our dinner at the Loveless Cafe before the show.
