Jon Bon Jovi Teams Up with NSYNC Star for Nashville Honky-Tonk

In an unexpected yet exciting collaboration, Jon Bon Jovi has partnered with *NSYNC’s Chris Kirkpatrick to launch a new rooftop bar and restaurant in Nashville. The establishment, known as JBJ’s Nashville, has already opened its doors, promising a unique blend of live music and culinary delights.

Kirkpatrick, who has been a Nashville resident for the past eight years, was inspired to join forces with Bon Jovi after seeing a photo of the rock legend cleaning dishes at one of his Soul Kitchen nonprofit restaurants. “It’s freaking Bon Jovi,” Kirkpatrick exclaimed, expressing his admiration for the singer’s hands-on approach to his charitable endeavors.

Despite initially not being a fan of Bon Jovi’s music during his younger years, Kirkpatrick’s perspective changed after witnessing the rocker’s dedication to his community. “I grew up in the ’80s, and I was into bands like Motley Crue and Metallica,” Kirkpatrick shared. “But seeing Bon Jovi washing dishes made me realize I wanted to be involved in whatever he does.”

The former *NSYNC member’s decision to invest in JBJ’s Nashville was driven by a desire to contribute to both Bon Jovi’s vision and the vibrant Nashville community. “When I saw that photo, I knew I had to be a part of it,” Kirkpatrick said. “Now, I feel like I’m not just part of Bon Jovi’s life, but also Nashville’s.”

Bon Jovi’s commitment to giving back is well-documented. He opened his first Soul Kitchen restaurant in 2011, offering a pay-what-you-can model to help feed those in need. The rock star’s dedication to his nonprofit work has earned him widespread respect and admiration.

At the grand opening of JBJ’s Nashville, Bon Jovi was present to greet guests and even performed a short set with his band. The crowd was treated to hits like “You Give Love a Bad Name” and “Legendary,” creating an unforgettable experience for attendees.

“We’re just gonna play you a couple, and then we’ll get to drinking,” Bon Jovi quipped before taking the stage. The 62-year-old rock icon’s enthusiasm and energy were palpable, setting the tone for what promises to be a popular new venue in Music City.

Kirkpatrick’s involvement in JBJ’s Nashville marks a new chapter in his career. Known for his time with *NSYNC, the singer has also ventured into podcasting with his “Name Drop” series alongside former MTV star Brian McFayden. His investment in the rooftop bar and restaurant reflects his deepening ties to Nashville and his commitment to supporting meaningful projects.

As JBJ’s Nashville continues to welcome patrons, the collaboration between Bon Jovi and Kirkpatrick stands as a testament to the power of community and the impact of giving back. With live music, great food, and a shared vision for making a difference, the new establishment is set to become a beloved fixture in the heart of Nashville.
