#SaveMusicRow

Music Row's very legacy is under attack but it's NOT too late to fight back.


The demolition paperwork is still pending and we have the ability to work together to preserve history and pave a path for the next generation of future artists. We NEED to share our pride for what has been and what is yet to be on Music Row. We are all a part of an important community in support of the dreamers and believers... let's get loud and be heard!


We dare you to stand up and fight for our community.


Do not miss this opportunity to help us protect our neighbors and the local businesses that reside here. All we need to achieve this goal is a bunch of ordinary people to come together and be heard.

To raise awareness of the ongoing threats to Music Row’s survival and key actions Metro Nashville and the public can take to support it, Historic Nashville, Inc. and the National Trust for Historic Preservation are co-hosting a special event: Rally the Row on July 24. The event will be held at Bobby’s Idle Hour, one of the five 16th Avenue South properties slated for demolition and the last remaining watering hole on Music Row. It will feature live entertainment from some of Nashville’s best artists, musicians and songwriters, plus information about ways the public can get involved in the effort to save Music Row.

 

If you can't make it to the event, there are still a few simple things you can do:

•  Sign the petition to let Nashville's elected officials know Music Row matters to you and urge them to take steps to protect it.

•  Purchase your #SaveMusicRow gear here (a portion of the proceeds will be donated to the new Music Row Preservation Fund administered by Historic Nashville, Inc).

•  Purchase a ticket to the new Music Row Guided Tour here (proceeds will also be donated to the Preservation Fund).

 

Together we can #SaveMusicRow! Get in touch at contact@sonashville.com or comment below with any questions.
