Expected 2023, Chief’s will stand six stories tall on the corner of Second Avenue and Broadway and feature a taste of Church’s hometown with authentic South Carolina BBQ and a two story live music venue.

“Like everything else we do in our career, I wouldn’t even attempt a project like this if I didn’t think it would be the best, so that’s what Chief’s will be: the best,” Church said in a statement.

“This is my hometown. This is personal. This matters. Every detail of Chief’s will feel that way. I cannot wait to get started. See you in 2023.”

In order to execute his vision, the Chief has enlisted help from Award-winning pitmaster and Whole Hog BBQ owner, Rodney Scott, as well as founder of boutique real estate development group AJ Capital, Ben Weprin, who went 50/50 on the purchase with Church.

“I am partnering with my closest friend and, in my opinion, the greatest hotel entrepreneur on earth, Ben Weprin, and the greatest barbecue chef in the world, Rodney Scott,” Church stated. “Together we will create an experience unique to Nashville and absolutely unparalleled in the world of music, food, fellowship and entertainment.”

Church joins a long list of Country artists who have real estate in Downton Nashville. Other artists established on Nashville’s lower Broadway district include Florida Georgia LineDierks BentleyLuke Bryan, Alan JacksonBlake SheltonJohn RichJason Aldean and Kid Rock

This investment is far more than just joining the Country-star owned bar club for Church, it’s a dream come true (and an extra special place to watch his Tar Heels play!)

“I remember driving through downtown Nashville over 20 years ago with a pawn shop guitar, riding shotgun in a beat-to-hell truck just trying to chase a dream,” Eric said. “Chief’s is the culmination of catching that dream.”
