What is it: Low-key places to hear singer-songwriters play their lyrics, usually acoustically. A listening room is the very core of the Music City experience.
Why go: Nashville is more about the people who write the songs than the stars who perform them. Open mic and songwriter nights at listening rooms, such as Listening Room Café and Bluebird Café, are places to hear the stories behind the songs.
