I came here with my wife for the Highly Suspect concert. We drove all the way down from Indiana because we wanted to experience the 333 feet underground cave concert. I didn't disappoint! The acoustics in this cave are truly remarkable and the scenery is...More

Truly a memorable experience! Bluegrass from the Rumpke Mountain Boys and Larry Keel Experience in a cave. Great music, great acoustics. The wait outside to get a prime seat is a bit annoying, but well worth it.

Fun time at Bluegrass Underground. Sprung for the VIP ticket that included a cave tour, tee shirt, CD, poster, food, and music. It also allowed us to enter before the general admission tickets to pick a seat. It is all first come first served. HOWEVER,...More

My wife and I are big music fans and see a lot of live shows. This was by far the best acoustics of any room in our lives. The whole scene is really cool and laid back, but very well organized, professional and just different.......More

So close to the musicians they sweat on you, great sound 3/4 of the way back, cool place to be in between sets. Some participation required on the 'audio check' was fun too. No dancing, no crowds, just sit back and enjoy until time to...More

I already have tickets for Saturday's show, my question is people talking about lines. How early do lines start? It sounds like we are expecting lines at will call and entry? We are looking to stay in east Nashville, one question up you said it takes 1 45 minutes to get there, google says 1 16?

We are very excited to celebrate my husband's 60th birthday here in August! We plan to fly into Nashville the day before and were originally going to stay in town. But the more I consider the drive and getting there for the tour prior, I think we will stay closer. Should we stay in Murfreesboro, or drive all the way to McMinnville? Want to be able to have a nice dinner that night. The whole thing will be a surprise (until we get to the airport!). Any recommendations appreciated! Thanks!
