Music City Minute: Luke Bryan, Josh Abbott, Miranda Lambert 

With a new venue slated to open on Nashville’s Lower Broadway, Luke Bryan will soon be following in the foodie footsteps of Alan Jackson (AJ’s Good Time Bar), Dierks Bentley (Whiskey Row), Florida Georgia Line (FGL House), John Rich (Redneck Riviera), Blake Shelton (Ole Red) and Jason Aldean (Jason Aldean’s Kitchen + Rooftop Bar).
According to the Tennessean, which cited Metro Historic Zoning Commission documents, Luke is planning to open the new venue at 301 Broadway. The new restaurant will be named Luke’s 32 Bridge Kitchen + Drink.
32 Bridge is also the name of Luke’s clothing line.
Ohio-based TC Restaurant Group purchased the building at 301 Broadway for $5.5 million in March. The Group’s portfolio also includes Jason Aldean’s Kitchen + Rooftop Bar and FGL House.

Josh Abbott married his girlfriend Taylor Parnell on Sunday in Austin, Texas. Their 14-month-old daughter Emery was one of the flower girls. The groomsmen included his bandmates Austin Davis and Preston Wait, plus his brother Chance. The wedding colors were neutral and soothing… green from the arrangements and the champagne from the girls’ dresses.”

The greenery and lighting was a really important part of the theme. We wanted everyone to forget they were indoors for the night, but in the middle of a Texas summer, air conditioning is a must,” the couple explain. 

Josh said, “Taylor was born and raised in Austin. Her grandparents are influential in her life and we didn’t want to make them travel for a destination wedding. Ultimately, the convenience and proximity of a wedding in downtown Austin was too good to pass up”

This part is interesting too. Josh wanted them write their own vows but Taylor said NO because she didn't want to compete with a professional songwriter. They are off on their honeymoon Cabo.
