Carpe Diem Records is Franklin's original record shop. Boasting a diverse collection of vintage records, Carpe Diem embodies a collaboration between music and strange, southern art force. Inspired by local folk legends and the soulful blues of the Mississippi Delta, you can find a certain grit here that feels like home.

Next door you can find the Legendary Kimbro's Pickin' Parlor. Kimbro's provides some of the best local music and blues pickers around, with a full bar and home cooked meals to boot. You'll be met with live music Monday-Friday, and welcomed by a community of music lovers and artists.

Come check us out for records, and hang around for the music and friends.
