Looking for love? 9 places country music fans could find a potential partner for Valentine's Day

CINCINNATI - Giddy up! The news of a brand new country music festival kicking off this summer has fans pretty excited.

So how about a date? We reached out to our WCPO 9 On Your Side Facebook fans to find out the best places to snag a date with a fellow country music fan this Valentines Day. That leaves plenty of time to fall in love by summer (see No. 7). And if not this year, there's always 2015.

  1. Bobby Mackey's Music World
    Well, obviously. Bobby Mackey's Wilder joint is known for being a local place for honky-tonk, with a history of karaoke, line dancing and, well, ghosts.
  2. Lebanon Grand Opry House
    It boasts it's the "Best show this side of Nashville, Tennessee." If you're looking for a place to consume some live, classic country music, this could be your ticket. Shows are on Saturday nights. And, if you fancy yourself a singer, you can even audition to play here.
  3. Toby Keith's 'I Love This Bar and Grill'
    Toby Keith's puts on a show, even if the man isn't at the Cincinnati location of his chain of nightclubs in person. Located at The Banks, it's in the center of the city. From the guitar-shaped bar, to the celebrity sightings, it's a good time.
  4. Tin Roof
    Another good one for live music at The Banks. You can catch sports fans here, anytime of the year. So if you're looking for someone who's a fan of the Reds or the Cyclones, this could be the joint.
  5. Knotty Pine Rock Club on Wednesday Nights
    Looking for an outlaw to love? Cool. According to the Dallas Moore Band's website, you can find one on Wednesday at this Cheviot bar. Dirty honky-tonk is its speciality.
  6. The Rabbit Hash Barn Dance
    First, it's a barn dance. Second, a dog serves as the mayor of this town. Need we say more?
  7. Riverbend's Country Megaticket
    They don't call it the B-105 Country Megaticket for nothing. Eight big acts are coming to Riverbend this year, including two nights of Luke Bryan. So, if you can get the ladies to look away from Luke, you could be in luck.
  8. The Buckle Up Music Festival
    Bunbury not your scene? That's fine, you'll want to check out Buckle Up this summer instead. You can catch a set from The Band Perry, Alabama or Willie Nelson and find a sweetie at the same time.
  9. The Thompson House
    If you're into ghost hunting, you should check this place out, too. Formerly the Southgate House, it's still full of music and music lovers alike.
