Good morning, Nashville. If you’ve been in this town for a few years, you may remember the feuding between Metro and the Nashville Sounds about a new stadium by the riverfront that never ended up happening. To say that things got tense would be an understatement, as Metro decided show us all how they really felt by bulldozing a chunk of the Sounds’ parking lot on opening day. The team has since changed ownership and the city has changed mayors, so the possibility of a new stadium may be back on the table. Metro officials and the Sounds owners met a few weeks ago to discuss three potential locations for the project and although nothing is definite, we expect to be hearing more in the coming months.
- Suspicious package downtown. Broadway was shut down for a couple of hours this morning when police discovered a suspicious package downtown which turned out to be a cooler that belonged to a homeless man. Which is a bummer because we were really hoping for another poorly-wrapped bench.
- Scandal! Channel 5′s investigative team is pretty sure they’ve uncovered a conspiracy surrounding Keith Urban’s All for the Hall benefit involving Urban’s own team selling 10,000 of the 15,000 tickets before ticket sales even opened to the public.
- Bits & pieces. Alan Jackson is doing another meet and greet today in that weird “pop-up” temporary Cracker Barrel downtown … We also forgot to warn you about that giant CMA concert for Good Morning America that shut down part of downtown this morning. Sorry ’bout that! … How do we love Chris Johnson this year? Let us count the ways … Maury County is cracking down on “gang hair”.
