Dierks Bentley Opens ‘Black’ Pop-Up Shop in Nashville
Dierks Bentley is headed to Broadway — well, Nashville's Lower Broadway, anyway.
In celebration of the release of his eighth studio album, Black, the "Drunk on a Plane" singer will bring his Black pop-up shop to Nashville. Opening Friday (May 27), the pop-up shop will be located at the corner of 4th and Broadway and will run through CMA Music Festival weekend on June 12.
As part of the shop, fans can listen to the album at the Black listening station. Additionally, visitors can purchase the album, as well as exclusive merchandise only available at the shop. Fans can also enter for a chance to win autographed items, as well as tickets to see Bentley live on tour.
"It’s pretty cool to have a pop-up shop dedicated to this album just a few doors down from the most legendary honky-tonks of all-time," Bentley admits in a press release. "It’s also the future home of my bar Whiskey Row, so it's great to be able to use the space and give the fans a place to chill during Music Fest before we start construction in there. I may have to swing by myself at some point to check it out!"
Bentley's Whiskey Row bar is scheduled to open on Broadway in 2017. According to the Tennessean, the four-story building will include three stages for live music, and the food on the menu will be made from scratch in-house. The bar is expected to offer more than 50 types of beer and craft cocktails.
“Lower Broadway’s honky-tonks are the stomping grounds of countless artists past to present chasing this crazy dream of playing music,” Bentley explains. “It’s home of the bars where I cut my teeth night after night, usually running up a beer tab bigger than the tips I made covered. It’s pretty full-circle to think that we’re getting the chance to open one of my bars, backing right up to the Ryman Auditorium, where other artists will look back on as the place they got their start, too."
