Lower Broadway Lacks Female Country Star Bars

Posted at 5:32 PM, Jun 12, 2018

Male Country Music artists have embraced Nashville's popularity by opening bars in downtown with their names attached. 

Blake Shelton's Ole Red, Dierks Bentley's Whiskey Row, John Rich's Redneck Riviera, Jason Aldeans Kitchen + Rooftop Bar, FGL House, AJ's Good Time Bar, and others have opened downtown, allowing Country Music fans to visit bars that feature their favorite artists. 

"I think it's really cool to see so many famous people and their names on places like this," Hannah Wright, a Country Music fan visiting Nashville, said. 

But for many, something's missing: Female Country Music artists. 

The lack of female Country Music artists having a stake in honky-tonks was raised by Maren Morris on Twitter.

"My Church" is one of Maren Morris' biggest hits that put her on the map. 

The idea got Country Music fans, and other artists talking. Jennifer Nettles of Sugarland chimed in. 

Fans have suggested that Dolly Parton, Reba, Miranda Lambert, Carrie Underwood, Shania Twain, and many others get in on the action down on Broadway, saying they wouldn't think twice before visiting one of their establishments. 

NewsChannel 5's Jesse Knutson has suggested that if Carrie Underwood opened a bar downtown, she could do it alongside her husband, former Predators captain Mike Fisher, and they could make it the premiere spot to watch Predators games outside of Bridgestone Arena. 

Jesse also suggested that Trisha Yearwood and Garth Brooks could open one together, with Garth focusing on the bar, and Trisha taking her cooking experience to create a special menu and restaurant for visitors to enjoy.
