Taped bi-monthly in front of a live studio/diner audience at NorthStar Studios (3201 Dickerson Pike, Nashville), the show’s spontaneity is part of the mystique of “Larry’s Country Diner” which
contributes greatly to its success.  “The prevailing attitude at the
diner is ‘…the cameras are always rollin’… and we don’t care,’” explains
Larry Black, host and creator of “Larry’s Country Diner.”  

The fact that plates are dropped or broken during a
performance, a rack of knives and forks are dumped on the floor or that
some of the lights go out while they were filming makes the show all
that more exciting in a day where even reality shows are produced within
strict script guidelines.  “It’s the kind of television you just don’t
see too much anymore and both the artists and fans love it,” states
Black who adds, “We even tell our artists that once the tape starts
rolling, it does not stop.  If you get yourself in trouble, get yourself
out ‘cause we’re not stoppin’.”

Because of its popularity, getting a seat to see a
live taping might prove more difficult than getting a reservation at one
of L.A.’s most trendy posh restaurants—the first available table is not
available until 2013, so you’ll want to plan way in advance.  For
reservations, please call 615-673-2846 or email
