Bluebird Cafe Found a Friend in Friends In Low Places During CMA Fest

A friend in need are friends indeed!

The iconic Bluebird Café's roof is in the midst of repair, and its beloved cozy venue won't be ready to house its memory-making writers' rounds during CMA Fest. Management at Friends In Low Places Bar & Honky-Tonk heard about café's disappointing debacle and offered up their exclusive third floor event space to help out.

"To finally get to do something for the Bluebird is a joy and an honor," Garth said.

Fittingly, the Bluebird's pop-up shows at FILP will feature songwriters Kent Blazy, Victoria Shaw, and Pat Alger, all of whom penned some of Garth's most enduring hit songs. The performances will be the first of their kind in the venue's private third floor.

"We've been busy gearing up for one of our favorite weeks of the year, CMA Fest!" Bluebird Café executives said, explaining that while they did everything they could, the roof still wasn't ready. "While it may look a little different this year, we couldn't be more excited to celebrate CMA Fest with all of you."

Friends In Low Places Bar & Honky-Tonk will host the songwriter shows on June 4, 5, and 6. Each event will be limited to 80 seats and launch with a 5 p.m. pre-show reception in the famous studio set of "Trisha's Southern Kitchen"—also on the venue's third floor.

Following a cocktail in the Kitchen space, guests can slip on over to Trisha's Monticello room, where there'll be no blues to chase - just bliss.
