Gov. Haslam told News 2 why the move to expand in Music City is so important.

“You get a brand like Warner, who has the incredible rich and deep tradition; they do to double-down on their investment in Tennessee,” he said. “That’s a great thing, so we’re incredibly grateful to the Warner folks for choosing to grow in Nashville and we’re hoping there might be more of that to come.”

Warner Music Group will also continue to operate its location on Music Row.
