Florida Georgia Line‘s Nashville bar, FGL House, has abruptly closed and will be replaced with Lainey Wilson’s Bell Bottoms Up Bar.

Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley Issue Statement

The disbanded duo, previously composed of Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley, took to the Florida Georgia Line Instagram to share a joint statement on the closure of their Downtown Nashville bar.

“We love being one of the first to have a bar downtown, but all great things eventually come to an end,” Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley shared, collectively. “FGL House has closed to make way for a new, unrelated venture. Hope y’all made some fun memories there – we sure did!”

FGL House’s social media accounts have been deleted, and their official website now redirects to TC Restaurant Group, the company that Florida Georgia Line initially partnered with to open the bar.

FGL House, located at 120 3rd Avenue South, made its debut on June 5, 2017, coinciding with 2017 CMA Fest week festivities.

Demise Of Florida Georgia Line, No Plans To Reunite

Florida Georgia Line were one of the biggest duos in Country music for over a decade and released five studio albums together as well as earned numerous awards, chart-topping hits and more. The duo officially called it quits in 2022 with their final show as a duo taking place in September of 2022.

The group have no plans to reunite, according to Tyler Hubbard, who in a recent interview with PEOPLE shared “It was a cool season of life, and I wouldn’t trade it for the world, but I don’t want it back. I’m in a way different place, and I wouldn’t trade it.” Brian Kelley also previously confirmed on his Instagram that a reunion is not on the horizon, sharing, “Respectfully, I can tell you that’s not happening.”

Since breaking up, both Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelly have launched solo careers and have released a series of singles and projects. Most recently, Hubbard released his sophomore album, Strong, and Kelley is gearing up to drop his new album, Tennessee Truth, on May 10.

FGL House To Be Transformed Into Lainey Wilson’s New Nashville Bar

As Florida Georgia Line shared in their statement, the bar closed to “make way for a new, unrelated venture.” That venture being another artist-owned establishment. The bar is set to be transformed into Lainey Wilson’s Bell Bottoms Up Bar.

Wilson will plant her Louisiana roots in Downtown Nashville with the opening of her Bell Bottoms Up bar in partnership with TC Restaurant Group. The “Wildflowers & Wild Horses” singer will bring her signature flair to her new three-story entertainment venue, located at 120 Third Avenue South.

“I’m so excited to announce Bell Bottoms Up, which will be opening later this Summer,” said Wilson. “I’ve always wanted to create a destination for all my fans to visit and create new memories at, in the heart of Country music city. So, to have a permanent destination in Nashville, is such a dream come true. I can’t wait for all my Wild Horses to get to experience my home away from home.”

Lainey Wilson’s bar is expected to open later this summer.

Artist-Owned Bars Fill Downtown Nashville

While Florida Georgia Line may have been one of the first artists to open a bar in Downtown Nashville, dozens of musicians now own bars on Lower Broadway and in surrounding areas of Music City.

Blake Shelton (Ole Red Nashville), Luke Bryan (Luke’s 32 Bridge Food + Drink), Miranda Lambert (Miranda Lambert’s Casa Rosa), Jason Aldean (Jason Aldean’s Kitchen Rooftop + Bar), Dierks Bentley (Whiskey Row), Garth Brooks (Friends in Low Places Bar & Honky Tonk), Eric Church (Chief’s) and many others have bars in Downtown Nashville. And it doesn’t stop there as there are several other artists that have recently unveiled plans for upcoming Nashville bars, including Morgan Wallen (Morgan Wallen’s This Bar And Tennessee Kitchen), Luke Combs (Category 10), Old Dominion (ODIE’s), Jon Bon Jovi (JBJ’s Nashville), and more.
