Featuring unforgettable performances by Taylor Swift, Garth Brooks, Maren Morris, Vince Gill, Jason Isbell and many more, we’ll explore the past and present of this accidental landmark, hear the origin stories of music royalty, and follow emerging singer-songwriters as they chase their dreams.
This is an underdog story. This is a story of perseverance and hope. This is BLUEBIRD.
