Fun For The Whole Family


Bluegrass Underground


Bluegrass Underground is a musical adventure series with a twist… It is held deep inside The Caverns at the base of Monteagle Mountain. With its natural acoustics and its mystical atmosphere, The Caverns is the perfect place to sit back and listen to emerging artists sing bluegrass, jamgrass, roots and Americana genres. Check into a floating cabin at Hales Bar Marina and Resort, and watch a Bluegrass Underground show or two.
