13 Dec The Tennessean: Kix Brooks jumps into fight against Cloud Hill project at Nashville’s Greer Stadium
Country music star Kix Brooks has joined the opposition to Nashville Mayor Megan Barry’s proposal to redevelop the old Greer Stadium property.
Brooks, who has known to weigh in and has lent his support to Civil War preservation causes in the past, including the protection of Fort Negley, announced his opposition in a dramatic Facebook post on Tuesday.
“There is a battle looming in Nashville,” Brooks said to begin his Facebook post. “The skirmish lines are in place. The fight for territory is ongoing. Both side(s) are searching for intelligence on the strengths and weaknesses of the opposition.
“All this is happening much the way it did in Nashville just over 150 years ago…”
Barry favors tearing down the old baseball stadium to build housing, creator and maker space and retail as part of the Cloud HIll development led by record producer T Bone Burnett, developer Bert Matthews and financier Tom Middleton.
