Backstage Nashville™ is a unique hit songwriters show that has quickly become one of Nashville, Tennessee’s top tourist attractions. The show features country music’s top songwriters and Nashville’s hottest rising stars twice a week at the legendary 3rd & Lindsley (Saturdays at 12:30 PM and Mondays at 2:30 PM). Music lovers from all over the world come to Backstage Nashville to hear country music’s greatest hits and the stories behind them.

They might even hear a song before it becomes a hit on the radio!


Since 2016, Backstage Nashville has been described as the “Grand Ole Opry meets the Bluebird Cafe”.  With room for only 65 guests in the backstage of 3rd & Lindsley, this intimate VIP experience gets you up close and personal with Nashville’s top songwriters. There isn’t a bad seat in the house!  The stage and lounge are filled with iconic artwork created by GRAMMY award winning songwriter Ray Stephenson - ears AND eyes are entertained!


The show begins with a “Holler and Swaller” and ends with a meet & greet where patrons have a chance to mingle with the performers and get their autographs/photos. It is a one of a kind experience that leaves a captivated audience inspired and wanting more!  In 2017, Backstage Nashville created Big Stage Mondays, a show on the main stage of 3rd & Lindsley.  Visit TICKETS to get your tickets!
