Since 2015, Southwest Airlines has been the Official Airline of The Bluebird Cafe, one of the country’s most iconic and historic music venues. Since opening its doors in 1982, the Bluebird has been a venue where up-and-coming songwriters and artists rise to fame and build their careers. From the novice to the star, all levels of songwriters are welcomed and supported—sounds a little like our very own airline!
On the wall at the Bluebird hangs a Southwest-branded Taylor Guitar as the house guitar. It’s always in-tune and ready to be played, so any artist performing at the Bluebird is able to strum a few chords on this beautiful instrument.
As we celebrated our 50th Anniversary this year, Taylor Guitars created another custom guitar to display at the Bluebird, and it was designed by Brianna Juda, a member of the Southwest Airlines Creative Studio. The guitar design features the Southwest Heart in gold as a nod to our “Golden” anniversary with our 50th Anniversary tagline “50 Years. One Heart.” There are two icons that look like passport stamps for Dallas and Nashville to pay homage to our home airport of Dallas (Love Field) and Nashville, home to the Bluebird and a city that Southwest has served for 35 years.
