The city of Nashville seems to be ever-changing and some new establishments are looking to open their doors in 2019.

Legendary songwriter-singer Bob Dylan is opening up a new whiskey joint downtown. "Heaven's Door Whiskey" will be housed in a church building nearly 150 years old that's nestled just off Broadway.

Patrons can find unique blends of Tennessee Bourbon, Double Barrel Whiskey, Straight Rye Whiskey and more. Click here to visit the website.

Jimmy Buffett will bring more island vibes to Music City with the Margaritaville Hotel. It's going up in Nashville's "SoBro" district and boasts a one-of-a-kind casual-luxe urban escape.

The 12-story building will be "no worries" to guests with its 217 rooms. Honky Tonk fans are already well-acquainted with the Margaritaville bar and restaurant located on lower Broadway. Find more here.

Fans will soon have a place to pay tribute to the late, great country music legend Merle Haggard with a museum and restaurant.

The Merle Haggard Museum and Merle’s Meat + 3 Saloon will be located at 121 Third Avenue South. The Swett family, owners of Swett's Restaurant for more than 60 years in North Nashville, will be running the restaurant.

Merle's museum will feature instruments, clothing, memorabilia, awards and other artifacts belonging to the legend. Click here for the press release.

And just a few hours down the road from Nashville is Dollywood - and the theme park is getting ready for its largest expansion ever.

The new “Wildwood Grove” is designed to have guests explore, imagine and play together as a family.

The new additions include a suspended family roller coaster dubbed, “The Dragonflier,” a new restaurant and more live entertainment. The total cost was about $37 million and is slated to open in 2019.
