About the Podcast
Music City Roots is a weekly live musical variety show based just outside of Nashville, Tennessee in historic Franklin. We feature the best in Americana, roots and bluegrass music. From 2009 to June of 2014, the show was staged at the Loveless Cafe Barn. Then, following a run at Liberty Hall in The Factory At Franklin, MCR announced plans to move to downtown Nashville in mid 2018. Shows from a variety of Nashville venues continue in limited run until then.
For those near Nashville, the show is live each Wednesday night starting at 7 pm central time. For those abroad, watch the live video stream at www.musiccityroots.com
