“Best homegrown talent in Middle Tennessee. Cozy and non-commercial. Real songwriters and pickers singing and playing their hearts out. Support them! Grow a pair and get on stage yo'self!”

“One of our favorite little dinners in Leipers Fork, Franklin, TN area, 37064. About 12 minutes or so from our BnB out toward the country northwest from here.”

“Williamson County has a little slice of leisure called “Leiper’s Fork” where time has somehow stood still in this ever-changing age of instagram likes and viral videos. It’s a town where you can grab a homemade meat and three, your weekly groceries and also hear some of the best guitar pickers in Tennessee- all in the same building. You may have heard about this area when researching the historical Natchez Trace Parkway, it serves as a perfect stop for travelers who enjoy the parkway’s winding roads, waterfalls and bluff overlooks. If you’ve never thought about visiting this little gem, we encourage you to make some time, make a stop or admire from afar (if that’s your only option). Locals call it ‘The Fork’ and it holds a spot in every travelers’ heart who finds themselves stopping in on their way through.”
