Musicians Hall Of Fame Ousted From Convention Center

A group of musicians and producers from the MUSICIANS HALL OF FAME AND MUSEUM say that the museum being built in their honor is being done wrong. They say they were offered a place inside the newly proposed downtown convention center in NASHVILLE and that offer has since been withdrawn.
BUDDY CANNON, who wrote GEORGE STRAIT's "Give It Away" and VERN GOSDIN's "Set 'Em Up, Joe," thinks musicians deserve what the city had offered. He said: "So now, for some reason, they've changed their mind and don't have room for them. It sounds a little unfair."
Though JOE CAIN, who is charge of the project at the METROPOLITAN DEVELOPMENT AND HOUSING AGENCY, denies that the decision has been made the HALL OF FAME's owner said he had seen updated drawings with the museum no longer in the plans.
