Earlier this week, the Music City Music Council
and Nashville Mayor Karl Dean's office released the results of a comprehensive economic impact study
of Nashville's music industry, produced by the Chamber's research staff.
This portrait of Nashville's signature industry provides a data-driven foundation for the Music City Music Council in its role of building a healthy environment for music business to flourish in the region. Among other key conclusions, the study found that Nashville's music industry contributes $9.7 billion to the city's economy each year and accounts for an estimated 56,000 jobs within the Nashville area.
Both the broad brush and the nuance of the music study yield new findings, insights and opportunity. Richard Florida, noted author on the creative class, featured the study in The Atlantic Cities.
Numerous print and broadcast outlets around the nation also reported the findings, again validating Nashville's reputation as an international powerhouse of the entertainment industry.
One of the Chamber's core competencies is to generate original research. The Chamber's research center is a full-service provider of data and analysis on economic, demographic and spatial topics. This study provides great evidence of that capability, as acknowledged locally and nationally.
