Luke Combs came in like a “Hurricane” with plans to transform Wildhorse Saloon into a multi-level entertainment concept.

The name of the 69,000-sqft venue is forthcoming, but the reigning CMA Entertainer of the Year + Opry Entertainment Group have big plans for the space. Here’s what you can expect when it opens in mid-summer 2024:

  • Concert hall with a 1,500-person capacity
  • 250-person honky-tonk
  • Sports betting bar on the third floor

There will also be a 9,000-sqft rooftop bar with views of the Cumberland River and Nissan Stadium, where Combs will take the stage this weekend. Other nods to his catalog include a “Beautiful Crazy” section for bachelorette parties, a “Bootleggers” area reserved for his biggest fans, and a space for songwriters to come together.

Wildhorse Saloon will remain open during renovation work, which is expected to begin later this year.
