NASHVILLE, Tenn. - A Music Row building developed by Elvis Presley's background singers has been the latest to transform into a downtown hotel.

It's the old United Artists Tower on 50 Music Square West.

The octagon-shaped structure was created by the vocal quartet The Jordanaires back in the 1970's.

It later became condos, and now, floors one through eight have been set to serve as hotel rooms.

The owner of the 9th floor penthouse will stay and said he has no plans to sell.

A small group of investors paid nearly $4 million for the eight floors.
