68. The First “In The Round”


On March 29, 1985, the first “In The Round” was held featuring Thom Schuyler, Fred Knobloch, Don Schlitz and Paul Overstreet.  Fred and Don had been out drinking, came up with the idea and said, “let’s put four chairs in the middle of the room, facing each other, turn around the lights, and see what happens,” (Kurland, 2002). Turns out this was a huge hit – most of the songwriter shows at Bluebird and around Nashville are “In The Round” today. And Schuyler, Knobloch and Schlitz  still play together “In the Round” with Jelly Roll Johnson at the Bluebird pretty frequently. You should definitely check it out if you haven’t yet.
