6 Country Stars You Didn’t Know Were Restaurant Owners
These six country superstars are not only incredibly talented musicians, but business savvy as well.
Even though most of these places are down south, it's still worth storing them in your "Good To Know" file in case you ever happen to be in the vicinity. You might have an even better shot of trying them than you think. How? Some of them have more than one location!
Blake Shelton's restaurant, Ole Red Nashville, just launched in May of this year in Nashville! His first location was opened in his hometown last year. Reportedly, his Nashville location brought 250 jobs to the city. Go Blake!
So, I've actually been to this one! Alan Jackson owns a bar in downtown Nashville right in the middle of it all! This place has awesome southern style food and some of the best live music on Broadway! Plus, there's a little tiki bar inside which is always fun!
Doesn't matter the place, if there's craft beer, I'm there. Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard own a live music venue + restaurant in Nashville that features local craft beers and the largest rooftop deck in the city.
Multiple sources report that Dierks Bentley's Whiskey Row offers some amazing food. The best part about the gastropub is its suspended stage. This one is definitely on my bucket list. Whiskey Row has a few locations in Arizona in addition to the one Nashville.
'I Love This Bar' isn't just a title of one of his hit songs. Nope, Toby Keith actually owns a string of restaurants in Oklahoma with the same name. Megacountry.com says that the Sweet Pecan Pie and Frozen Jack Daniels and Coke are two menu items too amazing to pass up.
You can't discuss restaurant owners that double as country stars without mentioning Jimmy Buffett. Margaritaville has become a staple! Since Margaritaville's are all over the country, you can experience one of these a lot easier than most of the restaurants on this list. There's even a location in Atlantic City. Who doesn't love Margaritaville?
