Luke Combs Gives His Nashville Bar A Powerful Name
In April of 2023, Luke Combs announced that he was opening his own Nashville bar and venue. The bar is at the location of the famous Wildhorse Saloon in downtown Nashville.
Luke took to his Instagram today (1/30) to tell fans that his new bar now has a name. Combs said in a video clip posted to Instagram, “What’s up, guys? Luke here. As you know, we’ve been teasing a bar of mine in downtown Nashville. So, I am excited to officially announce the name of the bar. It’s gonna be called Category 10. I’m so excited about that. As you guys know, the strongest a hurricane can be is category five, so we figured we’d double it and make it category ten.”
He added, “It’s gonna be an awesome honky tonk in downtown Nashville, foods, spirits, whatever you want, we’re gonna have it. It’s gonna be so much fun; I can’t wait for this thing to open. I can’t wait to see you guys there. I am backstage at the Opry right now, which is also super sick. You guys let me know what you think, and I will see you soon.”
Combs’s first number-one song came in 2016 called “Hurricane.”
The 69,000-square-foot venture will open at 120 2nd Avenue N, taking the place of Wildhorse Saloon, a longtime Ryman-owned country bar and ticketed venue that opened in 1994. The bar’s opening will be this year.
He posted a photo of him singing lyrics from his iPhone into a microphone, wearing a black t-shirt that features a stack of cassettes from the 1980s and 1990s country. In more photos, he listens from the soundboard and sits back with his blue ball cap resting on his belly.
He captioned the post, “Good to be back in the studio today…”
Many fans reacted with excitement to his new post, including one fan who observed what he was wearing on his wrist, “Damn, talk about stepping up the watch game. I liked the Rolex’s, but that’s another level!” Another fan gushed, “Thank the Lord. You are a gift @lukecombs.” One more fan said, “Bring the heat, boss!!!”
