NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) - And the show is back on! 

For the first time in a year, the General Jackson Showboat is back open and ready to cruise up and down the Cumberland river. 

The showboat is one of the largest ever built when created and launched on the Cumberland on April 20, 1985. 

Passengers on the showboat get to enjoy beautiful views of Music City, a fresh meal, and entertainment in its two-story Victorian Theater.
