Jason Aldean Hosts Grand Opening Of Downtown Nashville Restaurant

Jason Aldean celebrated the official grand opening of his new downtown Nashville restaurant and bar, simply called Jason Aldean's Kitchen + Roof Top Bar last night (Wednesday, June 20th). The three-story entertainment complex features seating for 250, six bars and a menu that Jason helped to create which is described as a mix of his Southern-cooking favorites, steaks, pastas, salads and dessert menu, including Jason's mother's recipe for Peach Cobbler. One of the bars is built around a 1961 4020 John Deere tractor serving as a tribute to the superstar's Number One hit "Big Green Tractor."

Jason joins the likes of Florida Georgia Line, Alan Jackson, Dierks Bentley, and Blake Shelton in opening a venue in Music City's downtown area. He tells us why he wanted to throw his hat in the ring, too: "I think why not (laughs) is the bigger question. I mean, when I moved to Nashville 20 years ago, Lower Broadway was like the older honky tonks and little souvenir shops. Now you do down there, man, it's so cool. There's all these really cool things popping everywhere in Nashville, (it's) booming just as a city, and that's such a cool part of our town, that downtown area, and to have a place like that not only I can go with my friends and hang out and have a good time, but it's like . . . it's the same reason I play shows - I want to see people having fun and having a good time."

Jason had a limited opening of his Restaurant + Roof Top Bar earlier this month during CMA Fest.

Morgan Wallen Had Doubts About Being A Good Songwriter

Morgan Wallen has proven himself to be a hit songwriter, having co-written one of this year's biggest hits, Jason Aldean's chart-topper "You Make It Easy," but songwriting was not something Morgan felt confident about when he moved to Nashville only a couple years ago to pursue his musical dream. The 25-year-old tells us exclusively that it was also only a couple years ago that he even learned how to play a guitar. "I started out singing originally when I was a kid so I always knew that I could sing, knew that I loved to sing, but the songwriting thing was something that came later. I didn't start writing songs until I was 19 or 20, something like that, and I also, that's when I learned to play guitar, too. I bought a chord chart from Walmart and kind of just tried to hack around, you know, and started writing songs. I didn't know if I was any good at writing songs. That was the one thing that I had doubts about. I knew I could sing but I didn't know if I could write, so just learning myself and learning that I was able to and that was a part of my whole thing was just I guess an added bonus."

Morgan's latest single, "Up Down," features Florida Georgia Line.
