The Full Story


The Honky Tonk School was created in 2000 by John Taylor to help the talent that comes into Music City learn and succeed. By hosting open call auditions for newcomers every single Saturday, we are opening that door of opportunity for talent of all kinds to come into our Honky Tonks to learn and grow with us! We offer an opportunity that no other place offers here on the Broadway strip. Not only do we guarantee success, we thrive in lifelong connections and become a family here in Nashville, TN. 



Our mission is to create the stars of tomorrow, today. We are here to help you learn, inspire, create, and succeed here in Nashville, TN: The Music City of the World!

Our ultimate goal here is to keep all of our talent learning constantly. You can never stop learning whether you've been a member of the Honky Tonk School for a week or for 15 years! A yearly retreat is still in the works for Honky Tonk School; a place where those in high school and college have a chance to come to music city to learn about the business and grow with us for a few weeks!
