When you hear the words ‘country music,’ the first thing that comes to mind is Nashville or Texas. But the cheatin,’ betrayal, and all-star country karaoke in Monarch were filmed in Atlanta and Hall County, Georgia. After the dust of this country-fried drama settles, this part of the state comes alive with lakes surrounded by rolling green hills and gorgeous apricot-hued sunsets.

Other ‘Monarch’ Film Locations  

Atlanta, Georgia  

There is a reason Nicky Roman (Anna Friel) is sweatin’ like a sinner in church. She got herself into some hot water with the law, which brings her to the big city. When the major players in Monarch need to check important things off their to-do list, like pay off a blackmailer or sweet talk the DA out of a murder charge, they slip on their cowboy boots and saunter down to historic downtown Atlanta. If Albie Roman (Trace Adkins) is wearing his bolo tie, you know it’s serious.

A frequent Monarch filming location is Piedmont Park at 1320 Monroe Dr. Northeast, a 200-acre greenspace situated in the heart of Atlanta. When Dottie Roman (Sarandon) needs to have a serious talk with nefarious folks, the spacious park offers plenty of privacy.   

Macon, Georgia  

  • Grand Opera House

Film crews were spotted on Mulberry Street, which means that there was a good chance the Grand Opera House was utilized for the big performances in Season 1 of Monarch. The performing arts center of Mercer University, this historic venue is heavily entwined with the fabric of Macon, Georgia.
