South Nashville Section to be Rebranded as 'Pie Town' -- Kai Beech

Piece by piece -- or better yet slice by slice -- an old Nashville neighborhood is getting a new name: Pie Town.

"Its a place thats okay to be a little crusty on the edges but sweet in the middle," said local artist Bryce McCloud. "Its Pie Town."

Pie Town is in South Nashville wedged between 8th Ave., Lafayette St. and Interstate 40. Located a just few blocks off Broadway, this area has a much different vibe than Nashvilles most popular tourist attraction.

"This area, I used to call it the 'Triangle of Sin,'" McCloud said.

"We had sex clubs, a liquor store and apparently one of the better places to buy heroin."

Now McCloud is trying to give this old neighborhood a new flavor. This weekend he and other local artists put up Pie Town murals on nearby businesses -- ultimately giving this area a new identity.  

And longtime Pie Town locals are excited with the areas new rebranding.

"It is going crazy over here," said Gayle Davis, owner of Hot Diggity Dog. "New businesses are popping up constantly and were really happy we have a name people can identify us with."
