The music varies from pop, to blues, to soul, some bluegrass, folk, and a little country makes the all the shows unique every time. Each show features the primary artist or group first, starting at 7pm for 2 hours. Then, another featured artist or group may perform for 30 minutes. To end up the evening, a Nashville style songwriter round is next which features 3 or 4 songwriters singing and performing their songs in rotation for about an hour or more. What's unique about songwriters is that you are actually watching and hearing songs sung by the original songwriter artist who wrote them; its really interesting to hear their version of the song. You may be watching a person sing their song which was ultimately recorded by great artist such as Toby Keith, or Keith Urban, Hank Williams, Jr., Elton John, Tim McGraw, Kenny Rogers, and many, many others.  The songwriters say that the Smoke House venue is as good as or better than the famous Nashville music venues such as The Bluebird Cafe, Tootsies, the Wagon Wheel, and others in the Nashville Music scene.

The Old General Store is a place you can spend the whole day looking around. Here you'll find all of the "Soon to be Famous" Smoke House BBQ & Hot sauces; probably the largest selection of BBQ sauces in one spot anywhere!  In addition to the sauces, there's the Smoke House meat rubs for those delicious Smoked Ribs you want to do at home, vinegars, salad dressings, dessert toppings, jams, jellies, pickles, relishes, homemade pork skins, nuts, and the now famous Smoke House Fudge; made fresh every day. Wait, there's more; local crafts & honey, toys, music, novelties, taffy, 40 flavors of soft drinks all in glass bottles, the museum of the Country Music's  legendary "Louvin Brothers", and the entertaining Hamper McBee Moonshine artifact exhibit area; learn how to make moonshine lik'er, and get away with it.
