The Convention Center Authority has entered into a MoU (PILOT agreement) with Metro. "Nashville's unprecedented growth in convention bookings has allowed the MCC to enter into this agreement with the city," said Charles Starks, president/CEO of Music City Center (MCC), Nashville. "The annual PILOT payment provided to Metro demonstrates the value of the hospitality and tourism industry as we strive to be a strong city partner and benefit the residents of Davidson County." Metro has received $10 million for two consecutive years from MCC. With the additional payment of $12.6 million, the city will receive a total of $22.6 million from MCC for the year's fiscal budget.
