Local artist Hollie Roy created the original art that will be auctioned off at the end of this year’s series. Hollie’s father-in-law was cared for by Alive, and the beautiful Tennessee landscape she created for the series represents our shared roots and the peace that comes from excellent end-of-life care.

“I knew I wanted to represent the beauty of Tennessee, Nashville’s deep roots to music and the lovely souls who allow us to spend quality time with our loved ones at their end-of-life transition,” she said.

About The Bluebird Cafe

Nashville’s Bluebird Cafe is a small but mighty venue where up and coming songwriters and artists build their careers and rise to fame. Over the past 40 years, the tiny room has developed into one of the most significant music venues in the world where all songwriters are welcomed and supported, from novice to established hit-makers. Artists such as Kathy Mattea, Garth Brooks, Faith Hill and Taylor Swift have had career moments along with countless hit songwriters whose music is represented on a wide range of charts.

A typical show at The Bluebird features three or four songwriters performing ‘In the round,’ a format made famous at the club where the performers take turns playing their original music, sharing the stories behind their songs, accompanying each other instrumentally, and vocally. The venue’s “SHHHH” policy establishes it as a listening room where audience members are encouraged to pay attention to the song itself – and since it accommodates only 90 people per show, the demand is high, and the room sells out in minutes.

Over 80,000 people visit the venue annually; many of them from seeing the Bluebird on television, in news pieces, The Foo Fighters’ documentary, Sonic Highways, the feature film, The Thing Called Love, or on the ABC hit drama, Nashville. The Bluebird Cafe has been featured in publications such as Southwest Spirit, National Geographic Traveler, The New York Times and Rolling Stone magazine where the club was voted one of the Top 10 Best Clubs in America. Most recently, the venue’s story was featured in the 2019 documentary, BLUEBIRD, available on streaming channels including iTunes and Amazon.
