Brett Young may sing at his wedding…
Jason Aldean’s Nashville bar to open soon…

 

Brett Young and his fiancee Taylor Mills are in the middle of planning their wedding, which is happening later this year. 
Brett doesn't really want to sing that day, but Taylor wants him to. One thing is for sure: he won't be singing one of his own songs. He says, "I think it will be really cheesy to do one of mine. So I’m trying to figure out what the cool, subtle thing to do is so that she gets the moment she’s looking for. And I don’t feel like I totally sold out on my wedding day.”

Jason Aldean's entertainment complex, Jason Aldean's Kitchen and Rooftop Bar, will open in Nashville's Lower Broadway area in June. 
The four-story venue will have six bars, live music and the largest outdoor patio on Broadway. The menu features favorites made from family recipes, including his mom's peach cobbler. 
No hard opening date has been announced yet.
