Opened in 1971 under the management of Owsley Manier and Brugh Reynolds, Exit/In has taken its place among the nation’s most venerable, historic music venues, by giving Nashville outsiders an alternative option. It was where Jimmy Buffett got his start; where a young Red Hot Chili Peppers enjoyed a Thanksgiving meal; where everyone from the likes of Avril Lavigne to The Ramones to Death Cab for Cutie to Etta James to Talking Heads performed. But reaching historic status isn’t easy. Exit/In had to fight for its place as outsiders within Nashville’s live music scene, and the club – as well as the people involved with it – have a ton of fascinating stories to tell. That fascinating past gives Exit/In a built-in legend for anyone who steps through its doors now which, if you’re smart, you’ll do the next time you find yourself in Nashville.
