Dierks Bentley‘s Whiskey Row will be the new home for Nashville’s musical discovery series, Whiskey Jam, which has hosted over 875 live events in its 13 years serving the artist and songwriting community. Starting September 18th, Whiskey Jam’s regular Monday and Thursday events will take place at the new location. “When we started construction on Whiskey Row seven years ago, my first call was to Ward because I knew he would be able to help us establish a music program that’s representative of the most authentic parts of Nashville, which was really important to me,” said Dierks. “This feels like a natural evolution in our relationship. I’m proud to know that my bar will be home base for artists and fans who want to hear original music of all kinds.”
