Muted Nashville New Year’s celebration nixes exploding 2020

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – In Nashville, the Christmas morning bombing of the downtown tourist district forced organizers of what was already slated to be a very muted New Year’s celebration to dial it back even further. Nashville had already canceled its outdoor public concert for a televised one. But organizers had hoped to blow up a 2020 number and have fireworks as a way to say good riddance to a terrible year. Bruce Spyridon is president and CEO of the Nashville Convention & Visitors Corp. He says they killed that idea after the bombing. He says, “To say it would have been tone deaf would be an understatement.”
