You found one treasure after another in Clarksville’s welcoming and walkable downtown. You topped that off with dinner and a sunset stroll along the Cumberland Riverwalk. Now it’s evening, and your energy shows no signs of waning…and neither does Clarksville’s!

Clarksville is much more than Nashville’s little sister, musically speaking. This vibrant river city has an incredibly creative, supportive live music scene. And while you’ll hear some twang, you’ll find much more than country music in Clarksville. Every genre is represented!

There’s one place and time, 8 P.M. on Tuesdays at Revel House, where you can hear live, original music across many genres in a single evening! It’s like a buffet of Clarksville’s sizable musical talent. You’ll hear three songs each from balladeers, full bands, and everything in between. Have a few songs you’d like to perform? Great! Come at 7 P.M. on Tuesday to sign up for your spot. 

If you’re lucky enough to be in Clarksville on a Tuesday, Revel House is the place to be. But live music abounds, especially on weekends.
