Luke Combs’ New Bar and Music Venue to Replace Nashville’s Wildhorse Saloon

Luke Combs is opening a bar and music venue in Nashville! The North Carolina native announced the news during a press conference at the Wildhorse Saloon, joined by Ryman Hospitality Properties’ Executive Chairman Colin Reed, revealing that his new place, scheduled to open by next summer, will replace the current Wildhorse Saloon.

“I had been approached a bunch of different times. … But I wanted to do it with somebody that I knew cared about the space and my fans as much as I do,” Combs said during a press conference.

The Grand Ole Opry member chose to partner with Ryman Hospitality to open his new venue because of his lengthy relationship with the organization.

“I understand that you guys care about what you do as much as I care about what I do,” Combs explained.

“There wouldn’t be a space with my name on it if it wasn’t for them. … I knew that it was the right thing for me, and for us, and for the fans,” he added.

Per The Tennessean, the new space will include a 250-person honky-tonk space, a two-story ticketed concert hall, holding up to 1500 people and a sports bar catering to legalized sports betting on the third floor. In addition, the space will also have a high-end bar for bourbon drinkers, a bachelorette-themed area, called “Beautiful Crazy,” and a section devoted to his fan club, The Bootleggers, as well as an indoor-outdoor rooftop space called the “Eye,” a nod to Combs’ debut single, “Hurricane.”

Although an official name has yet to be announced, Reed hints that it will have to do with “Hurricane,” which was the first song he ever heard Combs play.

“When I heard that song ‘Hurricane’ the first time, it blew me away,” Reed says, recalling when Combs performed it in front of him. “Hurricane’ is really about love. It’s really about affection. It’s really about power. We’re not going to let you know the name of this place just yet, because we’re in the final throes of trademarking [it].”

“The idea of this is really to do a multi-faceted experience, but it will be overseen by this wonderful song, ‘Hurricane,'” he adds. “And we’re also going to embody parts of these other big songs into this establishment.”

Combs joins Blake Shelton in owning a venue with Ryman Hospitality, who are also partners with Shelton’s numerous Ole Red establishments.

The father of one — with one on the way — recently received four ACM Awards nominations, including for Entertainer of the Year, and Male Artist of the Year. The announcement comes ahead of Combs’ back-to-back shows at Nissan Stadium, as part of his massive World Tour.
