Attorneys Set To Fight For Music Row Business

July 21, 2008 | Other
Some high-profile attorneys will outline their plan on Monday to challenge a property battle in Nashville on Music Row. Metro government wants to take a long-time business, Country International Records, and give it to a developer to construct a new $100 million high-rise building. However, the owner, Joy Ford, doesn't want to sell the business to the city. A group called the Institute For Justice has stepped in to fight the city's eminent domain decision.

Many famous singers have used the recording studio at Country International, including Jerry Lee Lewis and Elvis Presley.
