About Us

Cool things happening in Newport, TN - right off of I-40 in the East Tennessee Smoky Mountains surrounded by white water rivers and beautiful mountains seems like a good spot for a new music and event venue. 

Live At The RC showcases national touring artists in a multi-purpose event venue with with state of the art Meyer sound and complementary lighting that gives you a big city feel with hometown hospitality - connected to the amazing Bistro At The Cow featuring home-cooked shrimp and grits to street tacos and The Rustic Cow hand-dipped Ice Cream and Cow Cafe with specialty coffees and goodies - it's a one stop event all in the same building.

We're rehabbing a 33,000 sq foot 1940s building right downtown in Newport with three experiences and a mercantile to visit while you're here.  There are more shops opening downtown and we are just a few blocks from our town's growing Riverwalk. So, come hang out with us in our rustic and comfortable place where everyone is welcome!
