Ruble and Brenda Sanderson, and Brad Sanderson, owners of Nashville’s live music venue, The Stage on Broadway, have announced plans for an Austin, Texas location called The Stage on Sixth. The new location will be in the historic East 6th Street entertainment district and should be open in time for a big New Years Eve celebration.
Brooks & Dunn, Miranda Lambert, Bret Michaels and Jason Aldean are just a few of the stars that have performed at The Stage on Broadway. The venue has also been the location for numerous music video shoots, including Hank Williams Jr.’s “Why Can’t We All Just Get a Longneck” and Delbert McClinton’s “Lone Star Blues.” The venue has also been seen in television shows, including What Not To Wear, Nashville Star, Gone Country, and most recently, the major motion picture Country Strong, starring Tim McGraw and Gwyneth Paltrow.
“We hope to bring a little bit of Nashville to the vibrant Austin music scene, while opening up more opportunities for Austin’s up and coming new artists to have a place to showcase their talent,” said Ruble Sanderson. “Austin has an eclectic music scene, and we couldn’t be more excited at the prospect of being a part of it.”
Brandon Reineke will be The Stage on Sixth’s general manager.
