Corner Music Relocates From 12 South Location After 40 Years

Corner Music, a longtime Nashville music equipment retailer, is moving in late September to a new, larger Dickerson Road storefront. The new store will open on Sept. 29.

For more than 40 years, the music instrument and recording equipment supplier has catered to Nashville’s professional musicians at its convenient-to-Music Row location. But the uptick in the number of home-based recording studios across the city, combined with 12 South’s heavy tourist traffic and limited parking, prompted owner Larry Garris to reconsider offers he had been receiving for the current property.

The new location at the site of a former CVS drugstore at 3048 Dickerson Pike will offer more display area, additional warehouse space and a significant increase in available parking, and will also house Corner Audio & Video, the company’s sound and light installation division.

“We love 12 South and we’re happy to see the way it’s grown,” Garris said. “But sometimes our customers can’t even find a parking spot. As much as we appreciate all our visitors, we’re looking forward to being a pro shop again.”
