Jason Aldean has a lot to celebrate! In addition to his song “Try That In A Small Town” topping the Billboard Hot 100, the singer is also celebrating the grand opening of Jason Aldean’s Kitchen + Rooftop Bar.
The new location is the second for Aldean who opened his first Kitchen + Rooftop Bar in Nashville in 2018. Following in the footsteps of Blake Shelton Ole Red, Jason brought Music City to Gatlinburg with his new three-story venue that includes a souvenir and apparel shop, a restaurant, a gift shop and a third floor bar.
While the establishment officially opened for business in early July, the grand opening event was held Thursday, August 3, and Jason Aldean, his wife Brittany and their kids, Navy and Memphis, were on-hand for the ceremonial ribbon cutting.
Footage captured by the Knoxville News Sentinel show Jason Aldean’s tour busses lining the streets of downtown Gatlinburg. Hundreds of fans surrounded the busses and restaurant, braving the pouring rain in hopes of catching a glimpse of the star.
Jason and his family took their place in front of the establishment as Gatlinburg mayor, Mike Warner, and other local dignitaries and restaurant staff helped celebrate the occasion.
After the ribbon cutting, Jason and the gang made their way into the restaurant where the singer treated an invite-only crowd to a concert.
