NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — The Music City Center is having a record breaking year with its hundreds of events featuring major companies and groups.

Just six years after it's opening, it doesn't look like the event center will be slowing down anytime soon.

Music City Center President Charles Starks said they have contracts with groups all the way until 2033.

For fiscal year 2019, Music City Center hosted about 260 events where nearly half a million people attended.

That includes big events like CMA Fest, which hosted the Fan Fair this past year.

Altogether, the events generated nearly $440 million, giving it a major boost to Nashville's economy.

Starks said they haven't seen numbers like this since it opened.

Due to high demand and the number of bookings, the Music City Center is looking to expand. A master plan is in the works to keep up with the flourishing number of events held at the center.
