With the recent Nashville TV show, the Bluebird in Green Hills has gained even more popularity, making this one of the hottest open mics in the country and a go-to destination for Nashville visitors. Almost every country star has played at the Bluebird, so the stage emits positive vibes (even for non-country artists).
