Honky Tonk Tuesday
Honky Tonk Tuesdays @ the American Legion post 82 in Nashville! ** As seen in Rolling Stone Magazine! ** Live music and dancing from 6pm-12pm! ** Leave the BS at the door, grab a shot or beer, and be part of the real deal!
The American Legion Post 82 in East Nashville is ground zero for traditional country. “They’re the anti-Broadway,” says Tyler Mahan Coe, host of the country-music podcast Cocaine & Rhinestones. “If I lived in another country and someone described Nashville to me, and I went to Broadway, I would be pissed.” As the Legion’s house band, Brendan Malone and his well-dressed band, the Cowpokes, play songs by Ernest Tubb, George Jones, and other legends at Honky Tonk Tuesday Night, a weekly showcase where Kacey Musgraves, Jack White, and Emmylou Harris have stopped by. “It’s like walking into a time machine and you’re stepping straight back into the 1950s,” says Malone, who books the lineup. “[But] you have all walks of life. Punk rockers, the hardcore country & western kids, the hipsters, and even hip-hop kids.” One tip: Show up early to take free dance lessons.
