Blue Slip Winery, Knoxville’s first winery and the State of Tennessee’s first urban winery, celebrated the successful launch of Southern Railway Station Live on Dec. 2, 2014. Southern Railway Station Live is a unique musical experience combining local wine, food and music in Knoxville.

Robert Lee, who appeared on last seasons "The Voice," played to a crowd of friends and family for the inaugural show. With eight tables in the 1,776 square foot Southern Railway Station Spencer Ballroom, Blue Slip hopes to provide a musical experience unlike any other in Knoxville.

“I had a great time, the staff was awesome, the crowd was awesome and the room sounded amazing,” said Lee. “It was most certainly a nice change up from playing a normal gig.”

Doors open at 6 p.m. and show time is 7:30 p.m. for all shows. Future shows at the Southern Station will be acoustic-based and encourage freedom among the artists, but also create a sense of vulnerability in terms of how the room is setup, according to Linn Slocum, president of Blue Slip Winery. All shows will feature wine from Blue Slip Winery and food from Forks on the Road, with future sponsorship opportunities in the works. Admission for shows is currently $10, with advance purchases strongly suggested.

 “There are a lot of excellent musicians in Knoxville and the surrounding area,” said Slocum. “We want to create an atmosphere in this space that celebrates the artists and their music and creates a sanctuary for singer/songwriters in the area.”

On Wednesdays, the winery will host Station Comedy Showcase, which will host local comedians on a weekly basis.
