  1. Music City Roots announces plans to built a new 1,000-capacity venue called The Roots Barn next to Amqui Station in Madison. Set to open next year. https://www.wmot.org/post/music-city-roots-partners-madison-tn-new-roots-barn-venue?fbclid=IwAR0K-4LvKyvf3IE7s9Gqeyk7nBN-mBpl3N_CuO2geVpO4AjPn4ay5ECZnuw#stream/0
  2. Ron Sanford Productions is opening a 40,000 square foot event venue called The River’s Edge in a converted warehouse at 420 Davidson Street, next to Music City Karting and across from the PSC Metals site. https://www.google.com/amp/s/outandaboutnashville.com/coming-soon-a-new-place-to-celebrate/amp/ amp/s/outandaboutnashville.com/coming-soon-a-new-place-to-celebrate/amp/
  3. It really does seem like PSC is cleaning up. I walked past yesterday and all of their yards along Davidson St. have been cleared of scrap. My mom lives in the 508 Davidson building almost directly across the street and said that there’s been an unprecedented level of train activity in and out of the yards there over the past few weeks. I peeked in and saw about two dozen empty large dumpsters lining the tracks that have never been there before, in a field that always used to be piled high with scrap. Obviously I can’t say for sure what’s going on, but she’s lived there for six years and I walk that stretch of PSC frequently and something’s definitely changing.
  4. I’ve been following this board for almost two years and I think I’m finally going to make this one! Excited to meet y’all!
  5. The CBS show “Tell Me A Story” is basing its second season in Nashville and filming on location. Each season modernizes a classic fairy tale and this upcoming season puts the story of Beauty and The Beast in the context of a singer/songwriter looking to make it big in Music City. It’s set to air later this year. I ran into one of the producers randomly and she told me about it. I don’t have any more info or a link to follow its progress, but I wanted to share!
  6. https://www.tennessean.com/story/money/2019/06/25/mitsubishi-moves-headquarters-franklin-tennessee-california/1549906001/ mitsubishi is moving its HQ from CA to Franklin
  7. I was just interviewed for an upcoming French documentary on the rise of Nashville called “Nashville: Where To Dream Big”. It will air later this year on one of the premiere French TV stations to an estimated audience of a few million people. Contrary to most Nashville documentaries, this one largely ignores the country music history of the city and instead is focused almost exclusively on Nashville’s rise to the world’s stage and the plethora of economic opportunity here. It follows several artists and entrepreneurs from all over the world who have found success in Nashville. It sounds like it’ll really bolster our reputation in France. I’m excited to see it once it’s released!
  8. Chinese investors catching on: https://amp.scmp.com/property/article/3001588/yield-king-real-estate-investors-ditch-new-york-la-second-tier-us-cities
  9. I’m a hockey fan. I suppose it’s because of a cold maternal presence in my childhood and an existential feeling of always being on thin ice. Idk, I’ll ask my therapist.
  10. Whenever I hear utter mischaracterizations of Nashville as some podunk town, all that means to me is that there is a lot more room for growth for us on the national stage. With all the national and international regocnition we’ve been getting, and the influx and growth we’ve seen here, sometimes I worry about topping out. Comments like the ones on that board reassure me that there is still a lot of snow on the ground to ball over.
  11. The Waffle House on Dickerson Pike in Inglewood was being torn down this morning. I couldn’t snap a picture as I passed. No idea what the plans for that site are.
  12. It cited the absence of state income tax, low property tax, no state or city minimum wage in excess of the federally minimum, right-to-work, and a general lack of excess government regulation of business. I’d be more thorough but I don’t have a subscription either and apparently I’ve now exceeded my free viewership for the month after the initial reading :-p
  13. In response to the Guardian article, here is a WSJ opinion piece entitled The Secret of Nashville’s Success: https://www.wsj.com/amp/articles/secrets-of-nashvilles-success-11555452849
  14. Of all the things that have relocated here from Memphis over the years, I would’ve felt guilty over this one. Apparently they considered dismantling Graceland brick-by-brick and moving it to Nashville: https://slate.com/business/2019/04/graceland-memphis-elvis-presley-tax-exemptions.html
