Garth Brooks has revealed early plans to open his own bar on Nashville’s famous Lower Broadway, joining the ranks of fellow stars on the tourist strip.
Letting his idea slip during a wide-ranging press conference on Facebook last week, the Country Music Hall of Famer said chances are good he’ll soon put his name in neon lights. If he does, he’ll be just the latest star to invest in a bar/restaurant in Music City’s honky-tonk mecca.
“I’m going to say if you are betting, kind of bet toward it happening, because it’s just something that’s coming,” Brooks admitted. “It’s coming in the future, but it’s going to be done the way we do it.”
Nashville is already home to popular establishments named after Luke Bryan, Florida Georgia Line, Jason Aldean, Blake Shelton, Dierks Bentley, John Rich, Alan Jackson and Kid Rock, among the dozens of other musically-inclined watering holes. And there are also museums dedicated to Johnny Cash, George Jones, Patsy Cline and more. But as is the case with anything the icon does, Brooks will seek to make his bar stand out.
“It will be its own place, very much like Blake’s is his own place, and so we are going to do it our own way,” he said.
The superstar went on to predict fans can visit the space in “probably in the next two years, three years,” and also said the world-famous setting for his next venture is like one of his most-famous hits come to life.
“Man, talk about Broadway, that is ‘Friends In Low Places’ right there,” he said with a smile. “It’s the perfect place.”
Brooks held the press conference to announce he is withdrawing his name from consideration in the voting for CMA Entertainer of the Year, which he has already won seven times.
