New York, NY (Top40 Charts) One year ago today - October 5 - Alan Jackson opened AJ's Good Time Bar, an 8,000-square-foot entertainment mecca that's the only completely artist-owned establishment on Nashville's Lower Broadway. That means it's time to raise a glass - maybe filled with Jackson's personal beverage of choice, a Jack & Water - and toast the first anniversary of what Southern Living calls "a one-of-a-kind venue."

The bar's first anniversary comes the same month the Georgia native is to be officially inducted into the nearby Country Music Hall of Fame. The venue already has cemented its position as a go-to Nashville hotspot since opening its first two floors in October 2016 and adding the third floor and rooftop spaces in May 2017, serving more than half-a-million drinks since its opening. Various drink specials and events will run all weekend - beginning Thursday, October 5 - as part of AJ's milestone celebration.

In May, Jackson and his band gave a surprise performance on the ground floor's "Honky Tonk Stage" following a full-length, sold-out concert at the city's Ascend Amphitheatre. More recently, AJ's has played host to such special events as CNN's live coverage of the solar eclipse from the rooftop in August...and the venue led a #HonkyTonks4Texas initiative joined by several other venues, donating $1 for every item sold at the bar over Labor Day Weekend to aid hurricane relief efforts. AJ's has been the site of engagements, radio broadcast events, countless memorable moments for tourists and locals alike, and even a rooftop wedding.

The energy and the atmosphere of the venue have caught the attention of the entertainment and lifestyle media, as well. "AJ's is true to the city's famed honky tonks, with stages on each floor, offering real country music throughout," says Taste of Country. Food & Wine puts it simply: "You're sure to have a good time at AJ's."

About AJ's Good Time Bar:
Located at 421 Broadway, AJ's Good Time Bar is named for Jackson's 2008 chart-topper "Good Time." Each floor sports a different personality, showcasing Jackson's varied interests and hobbies. On the first floor, "AJ's Honky Tonk" prominently features live country music, while the second-floor "GT Bar" offers a sports- and car-themed atmosphere. The "Hullbilly Bar" on the third floor is proving to be one of the venue's biggest draws -- it's modeled after Jackson's Merritt Sportfish boat seen in his music videos for "It's Five O'Clock Somewhere" and "Long Way to Go." That level also features karaoke and live music. The rooftop "Star Bar" caps AJ's Good Time Bar, providing a panoramic view encompassing the historic Ryman Auditorium, Broadway, Nissan Stadium and all of downtown Music City from its vantage point four stories above the heart of Nashville - a stretch of road commonly called the "Honky Tonk Highway," just like Jackson's 2017 tour. As sole owner and visionary behind the venue, Jackson is known to make appearances at AJ's during the week and when not on the road. He's also a majority owner in ACME Feed & Seed, located just blocks away at 1st Avenue and Broadway.
