Maren Morris Says She Wants To Open A Bar In Nashville

Cool, another artist bar for me to avoid.

Over the past few years, there have been a ton of major country artists opening bars in downtown Nashville. Alan Jackson, Luke Bryan, Jason Aldean, Kid Rock, John Rich, Miranda Lambert, Dierks Bentley and Florida Georgia Line all have their own bars, with Eric Church and Garth Brooks recently becoming the latest artists to hang their name in neon on Broadway.

Oh, and Morgan Wallen also has his own bar coming soon, which I assume will have the chairs bolted down on the rooftop.

So I know what you’re thinking: Why doesn’t Maren Morris have her own bar? (You were definitely thinking that, right? Yeah I didn’t think so).

But according to Maren, it’s something she wants to do, because why not at this point?

During an appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Maren spoke about missing the Tex-Mex food from her native Texas, and her desire to add her name to the long list of artists with their own bars in Nashville:

“I’ve lived in Nashville for 11 years now…They have not figured out Tex-Mex food in Tennessee…

Maybe that’s what my next thing should be, not that I know anything about it.

I’ve always wanted to open a bar in Nashville called My Church. And it would be in an old church, maybe a Catholic one.”

I mean, might as well, everybody else is doing it. And honestly, if we can just keep the tourists contained in all these artist-owned bars so that the rest of Nashville doesn’t turn into the same shitshow as Broadway, I’m all for it.
