So if you are a Nashville songwriter like me or just a fan of songwriters or publisher you have been to or played the Commodore Lounge with either Debi Champion or Rick Stewart hosting the open Mic night. I have literally saw hundreds of songwriters and songwriting legends play here. Everyone form Jimmy Payne to Stan Webb in my years of paying dues in this town, hell I’m STILL paying my dues for sure.
This past year the whole hotel has been under renovation to better serve us with more hospitable luxuries.
This from their official website:
Holiday Inn Nashville-Vanderbilt is currently undergoing a massive renovation process! Upon our February 3rd completion date, our location will feature a newly remodeled front desk, doorway entrance and coffee bar, as well as renovated guestrooms, flooring and facilities throughout. Directional signs will be posted along the 1st and 2nd floor interiors, and additional assistance will be provided by our “Singing Consigliere”, Mr. Tommy Turner!
STARTING ON MONDAY, DECEMBER THE 5TH, THE FRONT ENTRANCE WILL BE OFF LIMITS. GUESTS ARE TO USE THE BACK ENTRANCE.
ALSO, THE COMMODORE GRILLE WILL NOW BE LOCATED IN THE BALLROOM UNTIL THE RESTAURANT’S RENOVATION PROCESS IS COMPLETE.
FINALLY, THE FITNESS CENTER WILL BE RELOCATED TO ROOM 221 ON THE 2ND FLOOR.
Certain renovations are scheduled to be completed by the end of December. Our tentative completion date is February 3rd. We appreciate your cooperation and patience at this time. Thank you all!
The hotel and Commodore Lounge are BOTH open for business the entire time the construction are underway. And both open mic hosts are releasing normal scheduled rounds of GREAT talent and GOOD food. I need to go back soon and have me a burger and watch some great talented songs being shared.
I have literally thousands of storied about this stage and many memories of playing shows there.
I cut my teeth here like you probably did and it remains one of Nashville’s premiere places
to showcase your original songs.
