Murfreesboro City Council Approves New Live Entertainment Campus

MURFEESBORO, Tenn. (WSMV) – Murfreesboro City Council voted on Wednesday to approve a new live entertainment campus meant to give the town a tourism boost.

The city of Murfreesboro has entered into a development agreement with Notes Live Inc. to develop the entertainment campus, according to a city press release.

The project, located at the southeast corner of Medical Center Parkway and Gateway Boulevard, includes a 4,500-seat outdoor amphitheater in the Murfreesboro Gateway called “The Sunset Music Colosseum on the Stones River.” The project also includes plans for Bourbon Brothers Smokehouse and Tavern, a casual upscale restaurant and Boot Barn Hall, a 400-seat table, acoustically designed music and corporate venue that can be converted into stadium seating to accommodate 1,400 guests.

The project will include improvements to infrastructure around the site.

Together, the venues are expected to hire 200 full-time and part-time staff and feature weekly concerts. Murfreesboro officials expect the sites to attract about 800,000 customers a year.

The statement said the construction of Bourbon Brothers and Boot Barn Hall will take approximately 18 months. The amphitheater will take 20 to 24 months to complete, after approval of the design by the Planning Commission and Murfreeboro Council.

“We are thrilled to finalize the deal for the high-quality entertainment business featuring live music both indoors and outdoors,” Mayor Shane McFarland said in the press release. “The public-private partnership will add an attractive amenity to our town and elevate Murfreesboro to the Nashville music scene. On behalf of City Council, I thank Notes Live for this substantial investment. We can’t wait to see construction and live performances kick off, as well as the necessary infrastructure improvements at Medical Center Parkway.
