Chris Blair opened The Listening Room Cafe in 2006 in Franklin, Tennessee, when he could not find a venue with an atmosphere he desired for Nashville musicians. With the buzz of major songwriters and crowds, Blair decided to bring the Cafe closer to downtown Nashville in 2008, moving it to the Cummins Station building. 2012 saw the closing of this location with a six-month hiatus before opening in the current location in the International Harvester Building in the downtown district.
