NSAI Gains Ownership of Famed Bluebird Cafe

Nashville’s famed performing venue the Bluebird Cafe will be owned by the Nashville Songwriters Association International, beginning Jan. 1, 2008.

Amy Kurland, who started the legendary club in 1982, said, “As the Bluebird turned 25, I looked back through the years of wonderful music and started to consider the next 25 years. By partnering with NSAI, I feel sure that the Bluebird will always be a home for new and accomplished songwriters.” Over the years, the Bluebird came to be known as Music City’s top venue for songwriters. Garth Brooks nailed down a recording contract after a Bluebird performance, while such stars as Kathy Mattea, T. Graham Brown and others were discovered at the club. The Bluebird has also played host to Mary Chapin Carpenter, Nanci Griffith, Don Schlitz and other writers.
