Report: 200+ music-related businesses still in Music Row

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – A recent study of Nashville’s famous Music Row found more than 200 music-related businesses in operation there.

The Tennessean reports (http://tnne.ws/1ZbyJJF ) findings by the National Trust for Historic Preservation will be unveiled in detail at a meeting Wednesday.

The report studied the history and land use of the popular music industry corridor, formerly known as Record Row.

The report found that 66 music-business properties are worthy of a spot on the National Register of Historic Places.

The report’s findings are important for the Metro Planning Department as the focus shifts to what city government will do, if anything, to preserve Music Row.

Lead researcher Carolyn Brackett says Music Row is a one-of-a-kind concentration of music-industry businesses unlike anything in the country.

The corridor unofficially turned 60 years old this year.
