In celebration of its two-year anniversary on Lower Broadway, AJ's Good Time Bar has partnered with the Nashville Predators for "It's Always 5 O'Clock In Smashville.” Beginning Tues., Oct. 9 from 5-7 PM CST, fans sporting Preds gear prior to all home games will receive a redeemable voucher for one free Music City Light draft, available on a first-come, first-serve basis during the 2018-19 season (valid ID required).
Owned by Country Music Hall of Fame member Alan Jackson and named #1 honky tonk in Nashville by Billboard, AJ's Good Time Bar is housed in the oldest building on Lower Broadway and is conveniently located just around the corner from Bridgestone Arena.
In an interview with the NHL, Jackson traces his support of the Predators back to when Barry Trotz was the coach. In 2017, Jackson closed Broadway and performed a concert for the Preds prior to Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Final vs. the Pittsburgh Penguins.
The Nashville Predators will face the Calgary Flames for their first regular season matchup at home on Tuesday, Oct. 9 at 7 PM CST. Celebrate the Preds at AJ’s Good Time Bar at these home games: nhl.com/predators/schedule

About AJ's Good Time Bar:
Recently named the #1 honky tonk in Nashville by Billboard and located at 421 Broadway in the heart of downtown Nashville, AJ's Good Time Bar is owned by Country Music Hall of Fame member Alan Jackson. Housed in the oldest building on Broadway, this historical venue was once, among other things, a civil war hospital, Nashville's first used record store and the home of the famous Bullet Records. In 2016, Jackson purchased the establishment and renamed it after his 2008 chart-topper "Good Time." Each floor now sports a different personality, showcasing Jackson's varied interests and hobbies. On the first floor, "AJ's Honky Tonk" prominently features live country music, while the second-floor "GT Bar" offers a sports- and car-themed atmosphere. The "Hullbilly Bar" on the third floor is proving to be one of the venue's biggest draws -- it's modeled after Jackson's Merritt Sportfish boat seen in his music videos for "It's Five O'Clock Somewhere" and "Long Way to Go." That level also features karaoke and live music. The rooftop "Star Bar" caps AJ's Good Time Bar, providing a panoramic view encompassing the historic Ryman Auditorium, Broadway, Nissan Stadium and all of downtown Music City from its vantage point four stories above the stretch of road commonly called the "Honky Tonk Highway," just like Jackson's current tour. As sole owner and visionary behind the venue, Jackson is known to make appearances at AJ's during the week and when not on the road. He's also a majority owner in ACME Feed & Seed, located just blocks away at 1st Avenue and Broadway.
About the Nashville Predators:
The Nashville Predators became the National Hockey League’s 27th team on May 4, 1998 and have evolved from a young expansion franchise into a staple of the Middle Tennessee community in the 19 years since. The team strives each season to reach its One Goal: becoming a Stanley Cup Champion hockey team while making Bridgestone Arena number one sports and entertainment venue in the United States. With One Goal in mind, the team saw its greatest successes in team history when they made it to Game 6 of the 2017 Stanley Cup Final and were named the 2018 Central Division, regular-season Western Conference & Presidents’ Trophy winners last season.
