About the Spoke
Anybody that was in or around Nashville from the mid 1990’s until 2002 know all about the Spoke.  There is not one songwriter that does not have a special memory of that venue.  When the writers speak of the ‘Spoke,’ as it was so lovingly referred to, they speak of it with love.  The writers speak of the magic, the camaraderie and the hit songs that were inspired there.   The room had an air of creativity about it that has not been duplicated in any venue since. 


Lee Rascone' was one of the hosts at the Spoke as well as Debi Champion and Dale Burie.  Jack Scott hosted there for a time as well as Barbara Cloyd but Lee and Debi were truly part of the heart and soul of the Spoke. 

The owner Mark Borns, a creative soul himself wanted a place where the writers would feel at home and could inspire one another. He spoke with Lee and they decided that they wanted the room to feel like it was just some good old friends sitting on a front or back porch picking and playing tunes.  That is when it was decided that the Spoke stage would be just that, it was built to look like a front or back porch. 

Be sure to get there by 6:00 p.m. or you may not get a seat. 

Let the magic begin again!
