Restaurant, music venue planned for old Acme building

Posted: Updated:
NASHVILLE, Tenn. -

A team of Nashville businessmen announced plans Wednesday morning to revive the iconic Acme building on Lower Broadway.

The facility dates back to 1890 and most recently sold farm supplies before closing in the 1990s.

Since then, the Acme building has remained empty.

Country superstar Alan Jackson, restaurateur Tom Morales, owner of the Southern Steak and Oyster, former Country Music Association CEO Steve Moore, George Boedecker, founder of Crocs, and music industry executive Nancy Russell are partnering to revitalize the space.

The three-story historic building will feature a restaurant, upscale bar and lounge and music venue.

The project is expected to open next summer, before the CMA Music Festival in early June.
