HENDERSONVILLE, Tenn. (WZTV) — Hendersonville has been the home of Johnny Cash, Conway Twitty, Taylor Swift - and now a massive 47-acre $100,000 mixed-use media studio and creative campus.
Music City Studios is boasted as a "first-of-its-kind media campus" that is planned for the Sumner County community. Capital investment for the development is more than $100,000,000.
Monolith Studios will anchor the campus that offers 200,000+ square feet of state-of-the-art sound stage space and 500,000+ square feet of space dedicated to tenants servicing the film, live music, broadcast, Metaverse and media production businesses, a news release says.
Music City Studios says it chose the city by the lake for its "fast-growing local economy, progressive city and county leadership, available housing and infrastructure, proximity to the airport and significant entertainment and creative arts history."
“The Oak Ridge Boys and Ricky Skaggs are current residents. Music City Studios and Monolith Studios could not select a more appropriate location," Mayor Jamie Clary said. "Hendersonville is a growing community of professionals who bleed creativity. The entertainment infrastructure needed for a film and music facility is already in and near Hendersonville. Music City Studios and their tenants will do well here.”
A groundbreaking for Music City Studios is expected before the end of the year. Construction is slated to be complete during the first quarter of 2023.
