Luke Combs, Opry Entertainment Group and the Wildhorse Saloon announced last week that they plan to build a 69,000 square foot entertainment complex within the Wildhorse Saloon.
The $30 million project will include a ticketed 1,500-seat concert hall, traditional honky tonk, themed bars, a rooftop bar of 9,000 square feet, a sports bar on the third floor, and a room for songwriters.
The bar's name is yet to be decided, but it will have a capacity of 3200 people. It was inspired by Combs hit song, "Hurricane."
Combs stated in a press release that he got his start on this stage. Having the chance to work with Opry Entertainment and transform it into my bar is a real dream.

Ryman spent nearly $9 million renovating Wildhorse, including enhanced stage lighting, expanded retail space, renovated private event spaces and more.
Colin Reed, executive chair of Ryman Hospitality Property Inc. and Combs' Bar, told Business Journal that the bar would "fully benefit" from these investments.
Wildhorse is open during the entire renovation process.
Reed told an interview that the multi-faceted entertainment destination would be built around the image and career of the superstar.
