Guess who stopped into Legends Corner in Nashville, TN this weekend, just because?
If you guessed Willie Nelson, you might be thinking back to when the red-headed stranger used to hang out and play gigs on honky tonk row.
The venue posted this picture of the two superstars taking on the small stage, in the window that faces Broadway. They shared, “#dierksbentley and #sherylcrow stopped in at this afternoon to sing a song. You never know who will pop in and jump on stage at #legendscorner #sherylcrow #dierksbentley #tennessee#honkytonk #countrymusic #nashville#tennessee #visitmusiccity #carpoolkaraoke”
The iconic bar has quite a history. So much, in fact, that current country stars tend to stop in to play every once in awhile. Like the time Cort Carpenter stopped by.
Even Keith Urban has been known to drop for a song or two.
The bar is almost as much museum as it is live music venue.
Five original 78RPM Elvis Presley Sun Records, a set of KISS Dolls and a 12 string autographed guitar once owned by Johnny Cash are hanging on the walls.
Also, memorabilia like first albums done by many of country music’s Legends, are hanging on the walls.
There’s a didgeridoo from Australia, a balalaika from Russia and a pickin’ stick from Appalachia.
The venue is open 11AM each morning to 2AM each night, and the live music in this Broadway bar never stops. And, this will be good news to Nashville visitors, there’s never a cover charge.
The venue revealed a new mural this year with the following stars: Tim McGraw, Loretta Lynn, Blake Shelton, Dierks Bentley, Willie Nelson, Taylor Swift, Johnny Cash, Keith Urban, Merle Haggard, Reba McEntire, Alan Jackson, George Strait, Dolly Parton and Garth Brooks.
The mural appears on one of the outside walls of Legends Corner on Lower Broadway.
Watch Keith Urban play his “Where the Blacktop Ends,” on the Legend-ary stage.
