Those of you coming to Nashville early next month for Fan Fair.....o.k., the CMA Music Fest....are going to have quite a treat in store when you reach our downtown area.
The sparkling, sprawling new Music City Center opened this past weekend, and while I didn't get to see but a fraction of the mammoth interior, I saw enough to come away very impressed. I think you'll be impressed as well.
I was there on Sunday afternoon for the opening of the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame, whose new home rests inside these imposing walls. As a songwriter and a member of the NSHOF since 1975, it was like a dream come true. There has been a hall of fame for country songwriters since the early seventies, but we've never had a physical structure in which to display the artifacts, the music, and memorabilia of our most creative citizens. They were handing out sheets of paper at the opening that said, "Home At Last."
