NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - A Nashville music executive and metro councilman is proposing cheaper parking rates for musicians who play their music in Lower Broadway honky-tonk bars and elsewhere downtown.

The Tennessean reports (https://tnne.ws/2qbB9KX ) that BMI official Jeff Syracuse is proposing a $5 nightly parking rate for musicians who play downtown. The BMI music executive plans to bring up the issue Thursday at a meeting of downtown merchants.

The deal was worked out with Premier Parking and the local musicians’ union, not through the metro government, though Syracuse is a councilman.

Last week, the Renaissance Hotel began offering musicians $9 valet service at its garage.
