Eddie Montgomery’s Restaurant to Be Sold at Auction
Eddie Montgomery‘s restaurant in central Kentucky is set to be put up for auction in January to help settle nearly $12.7 million in defaulted loans.
Eddie Montgomery’s Steakhouse, located in Harrodsburg, Ky., lost a judgment brought by Central Bank & Trust. The restaurant auction is set for Jan. 10 in Harrodsburg. According to the Lexington Herald-Leader, the bank sued Montgomery and his ex-wife, Tracy Nunan, earlier this year for money the couple owed on business-related loans.
The Montgomery Gentry singer opened the steakhouse in 2009. It closed abruptly in May of this year. Montgomery tweeted about the closure at the time:
Unfortunately, we had to close the steakhouse. It was a dream of mine to bring something back to our hometown that we could all be proud of.

The restaurant was built as part of a development called Skylar’s Landing, and will be auctioned off as a whole with surrounding lots.
Central Bank also took possession of Eddie Montgomery’s personal property near Perryville in Boyle County.
