Ray Stevens will soon have his very own music venue in West Nashville. On March 7, Stevens broke ground on CabaRay.

Stevens is developing CabaRay, a 27,000-square-foot music venue, in conjunction with Parkes Construction Co., which is handling construction of the building. Located on River Road in West Nashville, CabaRay will hold 700 seats and include a showroom area, dining area, full-service kitchen and multiple bars. It is set to open early in 2017.

"CabaRay is going to be a great venue for live music and good food," Stevens says in a press release. "You'll be able to sit down for large, big-band concerts and enjoy a steak at the same time."

Steven will also move his Ray Stevens Music offices from Music Row to CabaRay and will maintain a presence at the venue.

"I'll be doing shows at the CabaRay, of course, but we'll also be booking other name acts," he explains. "I think this is going to be a great hot spot for tourists visiting Nashville."
