Country singers with restaurants are a common phenomenon and, given the extra income they rake in, it's unsurprising many celebrities buy restaurants. Why not try your luck on the side with an entrepreneurial endeavor if you have the means to make it happen? Country singers with restaurant chains come in many forms and offer a wide variety of cuisines. Some famous country icons offer homestyle cooking while other country singers who have restaurants specialize in basics like burgers and fries. A few famous country singers even opened bars and grills in Nashville.

Who will you find on this list of top country stars with restaurants? There is the iconic Willie Nelson, who once owned a Texas Roadhouse in Austin. In 2017, Florida Georgia Line opened FGL House in Nashville and Toby Keith's I Love This Bar & Grill has locations across the United States. Other famous country singers who own restaurants include Kenny Rogers, Blake Shelton, and Alan Jackson.
