Rascal Flatts Bid Farewell to Famed Nashville Bar

RAscal Flatts

On Friday, Rascal Flatts and a few lucky fans, including Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler, crammed inside the iconic Fiddle and Steel bar in Nashville’s Printers Alley. The small bar is where the trio got their start so many years ago.

It’s an emotional roller coaster ride knowing this is it for the alley,” singer Gary LeVox said from the stage. “This stage got us on stages around the world. We’re forever indebted.”

The bar is closing it’s doors after 18 years after being pushed out by a new boutique hotel.

Nashville is growing and expanding, and this is just part of it,” added Rooney. “It’s like a Lego city, they’re taking away and building more. It’s good for the city, but it’s also sad for all the memories we had and made at that small what used to be smoky little honky-tonk. It’s changed through the years, and we wanted to say goodbye to it.”

If you weren’t one of the lucky few to have been at the show, you can enjoy it below.
