Honky Tonk Central, located in the beating heart of Nashville’s famed Broadway, is not just a bar—it’s a pulsating slice of country music heaven.

The Carolina Company Band, known for their vibrant and energetic performances, takes the iconic song and injects it with a new life. The fiddler, a virtuoso in her own right, begins an impassioned duel with the devil, her bow flying over the strings with a frenetic yet precise energy that captivates everyone in the room.

Then, in a moment that elevates the night from memorable to legendary, the fiddler and the singer find themselves intertwined atop the bar.
