Luke Combs and Opry Entertainment are teaming up for a brand new Nashville-based bar and music venue.
It'll replace The Wildhorse Saloon, which currently resides at 120 2nd Ave. N., and will involve multiple levels and a variety of designs inspired by the North Carolina superstar.
According to Billboard, the new space will have an outdoor-indoor capacity of over three thousand, with the venue apparently housing a range of creative features pivoting around Combs’ smash hit single, ‘Hurricane’, which served as the initial wind in the singer-songwriter's sails as he ascended into country's upper echelons.
Luke Combs spoke to Billboard about the plans for the new development, and explained that it was Opry Entertainment Group's involvement that made this project stand out to him, “I’ve had other offers for venues, but I always thought if I had the chance one day to do a venue, I would want to work with them. Working in hospitality the way they do, they bring something unique to the table”.
The ‘When It Rains It Pours’ hitmaker also emphasised that he'd gone to Blake Shelton for advice, something that was of particular importance to him, given the fact that Blake runs an array of hugely popular Ole Red entertainment venues.
Luke Combs and Opry Entertainment's exciting new project is believed to include a rooftop bar, and will offer scenic viewing points, as well as as a special zone designated solely for songwriters to use as a space to craft new music.
As is always the case with Combs, his fans have been his number one priority when drawing up plans for the venue, “I didn’t just want to slap my name on something and wash my hands of it. I’ve been very hands-on with this.
I wanted it to be something where my fans felt like they could come to. Obviously, if they are in the fanclub, there will be special things and special places for them to come to and unique opportunities”.
The entertainment venue is set to open in 2024, and until then, it will continue to function as the Wildhorse Saloon.
