Arts & Entertainment

On Friday, June 21, the Monteagle Sunday School Assembly will host Music City Roots, a Franklin, Tenn.-based radio show in a rare out-of-Nashville performance. Nashville’s beloved Americana music variety show and national TV/radio broadcast brings outstanding performance and old-time radio ambience to Monteagle for a fourth straight year. 

Join guest host Greg Hall, announcer Keith Bilbrey, and on-site journalist / interview guy Craig Havighurst, all who will keep the night crackling and informative as you enjoy a sampling of the finest roots and regional music being made today. 

Now partnered with WMOT/Roots Radio out of Middle Tennessee State, the show is a live showcase for culture and a good time for every generation. 

Admission is free. The doors of the Assembly’s historic auditorium will open at 6 p.m., and the show will start at 7 p.m. Those wishing to attend should stop by the front gate at the Assembly to get a free four-hour grounds pass. 

Seating in the auditorium will be on a first-come, first-served basis, but there is plenty of outdoor seating. Residents are encouraged to bring a blanket and picnic to enjoy the music under the stars.
