WHEREAS, Nashville has become the home to many recording studios and major music labels; and
WHEREAS, Nashville is on the verge of opening one of the great symphony halls in the world; and
WHEREAS, people come from all over the world to experience the musical opportunities our city has to offer; and
WHEREAS, a major music festival in Nashville, such as the Speletto festival in Charleston, South Carolina, would promote all types of music, possibly with a common theme, and would be focused on attracting a world-wide audience to come to Nashville; and
