It's practically an expected development for big country stars to open up their own bars and honky-tonks. Lower Broadway in Nashville is dotted with watering holes that have been curated by Luke Bryan, Jason Aldean, Miranda Lambert and soon, Eric Church and Garth Brooks.

However, you'll have to look elsewhere to find Chris Young's drinkin' spot.

"It wouldn't be in Nashville and it won't be under my name," he dishes to Taste of Country Nights host Evan Paul.

The "Famous Friends" singer was asked about the possibility of opening up his own bar, but he declined to offer up too many details. Although he admits there have been "multiple conversations" about such a project, he wouldn't even say what state his place might open up in, should it happen.

Instead of attaching his name to the potential establishment, Young is hoping to come up with a concept that will have fans instantly think of him.

"I was like, 'Man, we gotta come up with, like ... where they know it's mine, but it's also a cool idea,'" he shares. "So, we'll see."

Perhaps the name of the venue will be a reference to one of Young's songs, like Brooks is doing with his bar, Friends in Low Places. Young has put his spin on a drinking song with "At the End of a Bar" featuring Mitchell Tenpenny, which is about the people you meet while you're grabbing a drink. It's a song that Young says he has actually heard while at a bar.

"That is the best feeling," he admits. "I don't care how many hits you have as an artist, I do not care. That never gets old. It's so awesome."

"At the End of a Bar" is currently in the Top 5 on the country music charts.

Young has several shows ahead of him, with fairs and festival dates on the calendar. Those will keep him busy through October. Although he didn't go into detail about a new studio project, he admits that he will probably have something in the works for next year.

Top 10 Country Songs of 2022 So Far, Ranked

There are plenty of feel-good country jams on this list of the top country songs of 2022, but the No. 1 song is a gut punch. These 10 songs are ranked by critical acclaim, radio and sales success, and importance to the genre.

Five of the 10 artists made our Top Country Songs list from 2021 as well, but there are no repeats. If a song made a previous list or didn't spend most of its time on the charts in 2022, it's not eligible. So, before you ask where your favorite song is, be sure the miss isn't just a technicality.
