NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – SEC Media Days could be coming to Nashville.

News 2 reached out to the Nashville Sports Council after reports surfaced the Southern Eastern Conference is considering moving the event out of Hoover, Alabama.

Scott Ramsey, the President and CEO, said the city is interested in hosting and has “been in discussions with the SEC.”

“The proposal would be to utilize the Music City Center and a combination of downtown hotels,” he added.
