There are many music venues in and around Nashville, Tennessee,
one of these is Puckett’s Grocery & Restaurant
We got word from our friend, musician Lance Miller that he and Kendell Marvel, Tim James are on the bill for tonight’s (July 30, 2011) entertainment schedule at Puckett’s Grocery and Restaurant, Nashville location at 5th and Church. Time is 8 pm.
Described as ‘general store meets big city’ by The Nashville Scene magazine, Puckett’s Grocery & Restaurant invaded Nashville in the Fall of 2010. Puckett’s has been in historic Franklin and Leiper’s Fork decided to put it’s third location in downtown Nashville, and we are glad they did.
With the advent of Puckett’s into the downtown Nashville area, located at the corner of 5th and Church, it gave Nashville residents and visitors an extra 3200 square footage of eating space plus a popular music venue.
Puckett’s is well known as a local community restaurant with real people serving that delicious freshly made Southern food.
When owner Andy Marshall announced the new location, his daughter Claire immediately wanted to manage the new location.
Making this Puckett’s location into a new entertainmement venue for Nashville, with seating to accomodate 182 which is larger than the Franklin seating of 110. We took the following info from one of the press releases for the new Nashville location:
Founded by the Puckett family in the 1950s, Puckett’s has served as a country store to several communities in Williamson County. Andy Marshall bought the Leiper’s Fork Puckett’s Grocery in 1998. In 2002, Puckett’s branched out to start a formal dinner and music program. With all of the talented writers in and around town, the Friday night writers’ show grew fast with people coming from all over to hear some of the finest that the industry has to offer in a cool, eclectic environment.
Shortly after that, another opportunity opened up to expand Puckett’s to Marshall’s hometown and first love for community, in Historic Downtown Franklin. In February 2010, Puckett’s added to their already hefty list of accolades. Southern Exposure Magazine awarded eight Sizzle Awards to Puckett’s including Williamson county’s best burger, best meat and three, best staff and servers, best caterer, best value, and best live music.
Rob Robinson and his family now own the Leiper’s Fork location, while the Marshall family plans to expand into the Downtown Nashville community, set to open in the fall of 2010
