Lyric Street Records, a five-year-old country music label owned by the Walt Disney Company, is moving its Nashville offices to The Gulch. The label’s current roster of artists includes Rascal Flatts, SHeDAISY and Aaron Tippin.
By leasing 7,300 square feet in the Braid Electric Building at 1100 Demonbreun Street, Lyric Street becomes the 15th commercial tenant to relocate to offices in the 30-acre, $400 million Gulch project. The label will move from its current offices on 19th Ave. South in January. At that time, occupancy in the Braid Building will rise to 93 percent.
Steve Armistead, a partner in Nashville Urban Venture, the developers of The Gulch, said Thursday that establishing a music industry presence in The Gulch has been very important to his partners since the beginning of the project two years ago.
“Lyric Street is a significant new label with a bright future and we are delighted that they will join the growing number of music industry companies to locate in The Gulch,” Armistead said.
Other tenants already located in The Gulch include Bohan, Sony/ATV, Monterey Artist, HealthLeaders, Codigent Solution Group, Inc. and Provence Bakery. With Lyric Street in place, the total leased square footage in The Gulch has reached 110,000.
Lyric Street President Randy Goodman described the office space in the Braid Building as “exciting, contemporary and comfortable.”
In addition, Goodman said the move would allow his company of 20 professionals to expand long-term.
Lyric Street took its name from the street on which Walt and Roy Disney built homes after establishing the Walt Disney Co.
