Puckett’s Gro. & Restaurant, located on the square in downtown Murfreesboro, has rolled out several new offers geared toward students at Middle Tennessee State University, whose campus is just two miles from the A. Marshall Family Foods concept.
Known across middle Tennessee for its authentic Southern flavors, slow-smoked pulled pork and down-home hospitality, Puckett’s established a live music program at its first location in Leiper’s Fork, Tenn. nearly twenty years ago. Since then, many of the area’s most talented singers and songwriters have performed on the Puckett’s stages, and the restaurants are continually seeking to spotlight upcoming, local artists.
Beginning Monday, Nov. 6 , Puckett’s in Murfreesboro will host MTSU Music Mondays , offering MTSU students an opportunity to “sing for their supper” on the Puckett’s stage on the first Monday of every month. Aspiring artists who are enrolled in music programs at the university are encouraged to sign up for a slot by emailing Puckett’s music booking team at firstname.lastname@example.org with a brief bio and music samples.
Puckett’s in Murfreesboro has also begun offering a special deal for MTSU students on evenings with live music, which often include a cover charge. The cover will be waived for students who present a current MTSU ID card to their server. To see a calendar of upcoming shows, go to www.puckettsgro.com/murfreesboro/events .
The restaurant has introduced a special offer on food as well, dubbed Two for Tuesdays , where diners can get two barbecue sandwiches with fries for just $13.99 . Customers can choose from Puckett’s slow-smoked pulled pork, brisket or chicken for their sandwich, with the opportunity to add a Puckett’s brew for $3, all day on Tuesdays.
These new offerings follow a recent partnership between MTSU and Puckett’s Trolley, which is now serving concessions Floyd Stadium where the Blue Raiders play their home football games. The Trolley is located inside gates 3 and 4 at the stadium for all home football games and offers made-to-order Puckett’s favorites and a few signature items.
