If you’ve ever dreamed of hanging out in your backyard with a couple hundred of your closest friends, visit The Grove in Glasgow and make those dreams almost a reality. 

“We like to think of ourselves as the extension of everyone’s backyard, an all-inclusive community hub where people can enjoy live music or watch their own event come to life,” says Candace Barbee, public relations/marketing director for The Grove. 

The Grove is an outdoor venue open to all ages. It specializes in bluegrass and Americana artists, but a variety of genres are represented throughout the season, which runs April through September. The venue is also available to rent for weddings and other private events.

“You’ve got no idea what you’re in for until you walk through the gate,” Barbee says. “When you do, you’re immediately transported into a forest wonderland complete with three fire pits, a full-service bar built into the trees, a covered stage and our crown jewel and newest addition, The Treehouse.”

The Treehouse is a more than 2,000-square-foot viewing deck on which to watch the shows. 

“There’s nothing like it in the state, or even surrounding states that I’ve been able to find,” Barbee says. “We’re all about providing an experience. From the moment you enter our gates until the time you leave, you’re family—and we want it to feel that way.” 

The Grove is owned by Jason Kuykendall and family and was built during the pandemic shutdown in 2020. It has hosted three full seasons of live music.

“The Treehouse started as a vision of Jason’s, just as the venue did, and was the handiwork of Glasgow native and Grove Master Craftsman Mike DuPriest,” says Barbee. “There is a giant hillside in the back part of the venue, so it was a great way to utilize the space.”

Six shows are planned in June:

June 1: The Georgia Thunderbolts with The Damn Shames

June 7: Bad Navigator-Sounds of the 70’s

June 8: John Moreland with Ken Pomeroy

June 14: Lilly Hiatt & Leah Blevins

June 15: The Del McCoury Band with Wyatt Ellis

June 29: Back to Mac: A Tribute to Fleetwood Mac

Visit for the full schedule.

The Grove is located at 702 Happy Valley Road in Glasgow, behind Ralphie’s Fun Center. Hours vary, but gates typically open around 5–6 p.m. with music at 7. Shows are on select Fridays and Saturdays.
