Music Row Resurrection?

November 14, 2019

Nashville’s reputation as the recording capital of Country Music took off in 1954, when Owen and Harold Bradley established Bradley Film and Recording Studios, later called the Quonset Hut Studio, on 16th Avenue, opening the first of many major label studios in the neighborhood in and around 16th and 17th Avenues South. 21st century commercial real estate pressures moved many studios out of Music Row, but cultural preservations and country music enthusiasts are fighting back. The National Trust declared the district a National Treasure in 2015, and the city’s planning department now envisions a culturally-sensitive development process to resurrect Music Row.
