You are probably familiar with his Nashville, Tennessee location on Broadway, but this version of “Jason Aldean’s Kitchen and Rooftop Bar” is located in Gatlinburg, Tennessee. The Smoky Mountains restaurant had its grand opening yesterday, and Aldean, his wife Brittany, and their two kids Memphis and Navy, were there to celebrate the occasion.
The Mayor of Gatlinburg, Mike Werner, was also in attendance for the ceremonial ribbon cutting, and fans braved the not-so-great weather so they could witness the celebration. When the oversized scissors cut the ribbon, everyone in attendance cheered to celebrate the new three level, 21,000 square foot restaurant that is expected to bring over 120 jobs to the area.
And those in attendance were excited to see that Aldean decided to play a 35-minute set on the restaurant’s live music stage. Many of his most popular songs made it into the performance, including the song that is currently sitting at the number one spot on the Billboard Hot 100, “Try That In A Small Town.”
So this happened… @Jason_Aldean was in Gatlinburg last night for the grand opening of his new restaurant 𝗝𝗮𝘀𝗼𝗻 𝗔𝗹𝗱𝗲𝗮𝗻'𝘀 𝗞𝗶𝘁𝗰𝗵𝗲𝗻 + 𝗥𝗼𝗼𝗳𝘁𝗼𝗽 𝗕𝗮𝗿 in downtown. Welcome to the 'Burg! ✌🏻 pic.twitter.com/1DEANDGw0L
As far as the specifics go for the restaurant, the Gatlinburg location will be very similar to one that opened up on Nashville’s Broadway scene in 2018.
In the main restaurant portion of the newly opened eatery, fans and visitors will be able to stop by the John Deere 4020 Tractor Bar, which pays tribute to Aldean’s hit song “Big Green Tractor.”
Each level of the Gatlinburg location will be unique in its own way, with memorabilia and photographs from Jason Aldean’s illustrious country music career decorating the walls. Two of the restaurant’s best features will be the breakfast diner located on the first floor, as well as the rooftop deck that will offer stunning views of the surrounding Smoky Mountains.
The food that graces the menu will align with the Nashville location, serving food basket meals and some of Aldean’s favorites like “Grandma’s Pot Roast” and “Mama Aldean’s Peach Cobbler.” Just as he did with the Broadway spot, Aldean collaborated with Chef Tomasz Wosiak to iron out the food items offered.
So now if you ever feel like listening to some live music and you are either in Nashville or Gatlinburg, and you happen to be a big time fan of Jason Aldean, you know where to go.
