Likewise, some of country music’s top talent were discovered here, including Keith Urban, Sugarland and Dierks Bentley.

Known for its top-notch acoustics and intimate setting, 12th & Porter quickly became a staple in the Nashville music scene. Because of the eclectic mix of artists it attracted, and its prime location in the heart of Nashville, 12th & Porter has become one of the Southeast’s most distinguished concert venues.

Following its transfer of ownership in February 2015, 12th & Porter underwent extensive structural renovations to further improve the sound, production, and overall concert experience for fans and artists.
