Musicians hounded out of Music City development

A Nashville judge on Friday (Feb. 12) ordered the founder of the Musicians Hall of Fame and Museum to move the operation from its current location in downtown Nashville to make way for a $585 million convention center. In ruling in favor of the Metro Development and Housing Authority, Judge Barbara Haynes is requiring Musicians Hall of Fame founder Joe Chambers to move everything out of the building he owns on Sixth Avenue South within seven days. Developers have reportedly offered $4.8 million for Chambers' property, but he says it would cost almost $9 million to relocate the museum. The museum, which opened in 2006, is located near the Sommet Center and the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum.
