Active duty members of the military, veterans or first responders who are headed to Nashville this week for CMA Fest can stop by John Rich’s new downtown honky-tonk, Redneck Riviera, for a cold one on the house.
The Big & Rich star created a Heroes Bar inside Redneck Riviera that offers servicemen and women and first responders two-for-one on all beer, wine and cocktails between opening and 10 p.m.
“[There] is a bar inside called the Heroes Bar,” says John. “If you’re active duty or a vet or a first responder, it’s first drink on the house—it is free. It’s like, ‘Thank you for your service, and what can we get you to drink?’”
Check out the full schedule of events at Redneck Riviera during CMA Fest.
