Tennessee Music Scene

Nashville is known as the country music capitol of the world, but every year for a week there’s huge festival that overshadows this honky tonk town. Bonnaroo has grown to become the biggest festival in America in the most unlikely of places. The crowds are huge, the profits massive, and there is no semblance of traditional Nashville music to be seen or heard. What started out as a modest hippie gathering with jam-bands and folk artists blew up into a large corporate event featuring some of the biggest names in rock. In the summer of 2007 Tool shocked its legions of fans by making a Bonnaroo appearance despite the band’s history of seclusion. Their appearance solidified the festival’s superstar status and made many people wonder if Bonnaroo could possibly be a modern day Woodstock.


Tennessee's warmer climate and plentiful lakes lends itself to many outdoor venues. Some of the best performances can be found in the custom built stages outside at Knoxville's World's Fair Park or floating stages and docks at Ft. Loudon Lake or Norris Lake, TN The lakes in central Tennessee also lend themselves to great stages for large shows like Nashville's RiverJam.


Knoxville is kind of like Nashville’s little sister, but “K-town” has a surprisingly potent music scene for its size. Bands like Superdrag, Robinella and the C.C. String Band, and Shinedown were able to capitalize on the rabid college audiences that the University of Tennessee provides. The latest wave of exports from Knoxville has been initiated by a band called 10 Years, a classic case study in how diligence and patience can pay off for unsigned bands. This group hung around Knoxville for nearly a decade, building its fan base and learning the music business. 10 Years had the opportunity to sign with smaller labels during this period, but instead chose to strengthen their local fan base. They held out for a record contract that would yield better production of their music, a bigger budget, and an overall greater chance of making it in the business. The result: In 2005 they signed with the major label Republic/Universal and reached #1 with their first single “Wasteland”.


Best Music Venues in Tennessee:


Knoxville – Barley’s is a huge 2-story warehouse that maintains a comforting feel. Bands are paid well and a large built-in crowd helps increase an artist’s following.


Nashville – 12th and Porter has split personalities. One side there’s a chic restaurant and bar. The other side is a full-blown rock venue. The sound is amazing here and there’s always an opportunity to open for a national level band.
