Dierks Bentley‘s downtown Whiskey Row is soon going to host Whiskey Jam, a popular live music event in Nashville. Whiskey Jam has hosted more than 875 live events in the past 13 years, drawing talent of artists like Luke Combs, Chris Stapleton, Morgan Wallen, Kacey Musgraves, Old Dominion, Scotty McCreery, Keith Urban and even Bentley.
It was Ward Guenther, Whiskey Jam’s founder, whom Bentley reached out to first when he had the idea of Whiskey Row, located at 400 Broadway.
“When we started construction on Whiskey Row seven years ago, my first call was to Ward because I knew he would be able to help us establish a music program that’s representative of the most authentic parts of Nashville, which was really important to me,” Bentley says. “This feels like a natural evolution in our relationship. I’m proud to know that my bar will be home base for artists and fans who want to hear original music of all kinds.”
“Whiskey Row is the perfect new home for Whiskey Jam,” adds Guenther. “Their commitment to quality and variety aligns with our own values, allowing us to provide a truly unique experience for artists and fans alike. The downtown area has always been the epicenter of our city when it comes to energy, excitement, and most importantly, music. So we’re honored to bring our event into the heart of Nashville.”
Bentley just celebrated his 22nd No. 1 hit with “Gold.” The Grand Ole Opry member is back with another single, “Something Real.” Both songs are from his latest Gravel & Gold album, released in February.
“I wrote this song out in Colorado where I really go to recharge and get closer to the source, that being nature, those mountains and the great outdoors,” Bentley says of “Something Real.” “I wrote this with some friends of mine that flew out there to write with me. HARDY was out there, Ross Copperman, Ashley Gorley and Luke Dick, and I had this idea, brought it to these guys and they took it to a whole new place.”
Whiskey Jam takes place on Monday and Thursday evenings. Whiskey Jam’s first performance at Whiskey Row will take place on September 18. More information is available at WhiskeyJam.com.
