To celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of the Nashville club, Exit/In, Dianne Davidson, Jason Ringenberg, and Webb Wilder, all artists who performed there regularly, share memories of the legendary venue with the Museum’s Peter Cooper and perform live.
Part of the Museum’s “Live at the Hall” series, this program was recorded on March 26, 2022, in support of the exhibition “Outlaws & Armadillos: Country’s Roaring ’70s.”
Owsley Manier and Brugh Reynolds opened the Exit/In—named so because the door to the place was in the back—in September 1971. Located at 2208 Elliston Place, on what is now known as the Rock Block, and selected for its proximity to Vanderbilt University, the venue has hosted a wide range of notable acts through the years.
Davidson, one of the first acts to perform at Exit/In, has recorded five albums, toured as a member of Linda Ronstadt’s band, and provided backing vocals for Jimmy Buffett, B.B. King, Barry Manilow, Leon Russell, and Tammy Wynette. Ringenberg is a singer-songwriter and guitarist, and the lead singer for the alternative country band Jason & the Scorchers. Like Ringenberg, Wilder is a leading light of Nashville rock.
