Luke Combs has shared the name of his new Nashville bar.

As The Tennessean reported earlier this month, Combs is opening a new bar where Nashville’s iconic Wildhorse Saloon once was. In its time, Wildhorse Saloon welcomed the likes of Ringo Starr, Etta James, Little Big Town and Darius Rucker.

Taking to social media yesterday, Combs announced the name of his new honky-tonk bar: Category 10.

“I’m excited to officially announce the name of that bar,” Combs said in an Instagram video. “It’s going to be called Category 10. I’m so excited about that. Obviously, as you guys know, the strongest a hurricane can be is a Category 5, so we figured we’d double it and make it Category 10!”

He added, “It’s going to be an awesome honky tonk [in] Downtown Nashville. Food, spirits, you name it. Whatever you want, we’re going to have it. It’s going to be so much fun!”

The Tennessean previously reported that Luke Combs’ new bar would be a four-storey extravaganza that would hold a first-floor 250-capacity space for honky tonk shows, second-floor ticketed concert hall for 1,500 punters, and a third floor acting as a haven for legalised betting on sports.

The venue will also host a bar for high-end bourbon fans, a bachelorette space and area for his fans – the Beautiful Crazy and Bootleggers sections, respectively – and a 9,000-square-foot indoor/outdoor rooftop referencing the bar’s hurricane-inspired title, the Eye.

In other recent Luke Combs news, the famous American country singer recently shared a poignant (and unreleased) song about fatherhood called Plant A Seed on social media.

An effortlessly moving tune, the Love You Anyway singer apologised for all the “dad” songs, but if he continues to release dad songs like this one, we hope he doesn’t stop.

Combs wrote in the caption, “Got sent this song a while back from Wyatt McCubbin that he wrote with Rob Snyder and Jeff Hyde. Last night, it was in my head, and I couldn’t sleep, so I got up and messed around with it for a few hours. Been singing it to myself all morning and as I watched the boys while Nicole got a shower in, I recorded this.

“Hope y’all like it, and sorry for all the dad songs, but that’s where I’m at these days, and I couldn’t be happier about it. A lot more songs to come soon.”
