ABC's hit television show “Nashville” shot scenes at the popular Franklin Theatre Monday.

The historic movie theatre was transformed into a concert venue for upcoming artist Layla Grant, played by Aubrey Peeples.

“We couldn't ask for anything better. It's incredible exposure for the theatre. I mean, we're going to be on national television as the Franklin Theatre in Nashville and that's something. That's really exciting. I mean, you can't buy that,” Franklin Theatre Operations Manager Evan Freeze said.

All businesses surrounding the theatre stayed open as usual during the filming.

“Nashville” airs on News 2 Wednesday night at 9 p.m.
