Clarksville's musical diversity takes center stage with year-round concerts and performances, offering a mix of free and ticketed events for the community.

Delve into the city's rich music history, where legends like Jimi Hendrix and "The King of Country Music" Roy Acuff left their mark. Hendrix rocked Clarksville after a stint with the 101st Airborne at Fort Campbell, forming his first band and playing gigs around town before making his way to Nashville. While Acuff transformed Dunbar Cave into a weekly musical extravaganza featuring Grand Ole Opry stars during his ownership.

And let's not forget the influence of Austin Peay State University, contributing over 100 music performances annually through faculty concerts, guest artists, and student recitals.
