Microphone Bicycle Rack

If you enjoy visiting the destinations presented on, this is the first of a trifecta within 100 yards of each other. The microphone bike rack, Musica statue and Owen Bradley piano sculpture are around the roundabout.

Be careful crossing the streets in the area. The Nashvillians still haven't mastered the intricacies of the roundabout after all these years.

Microphone Bicycle Rack

Located on the outside of the "Musica" round-about is a giant microphone that appears to double as a bike rack, and a life-size bronze sculpture of Owen Bradley sitting at a piano. Bradley built the first music business on Nashville's now-famous Music Row. He became an architect of the Nashville Sound through his work with country hit makers Patsy Cline, Loretta Lynn, Brenda Lee and Kitty Wells.

[Salty, 06/16/2011]

Installed in 2010 and created by artists Franne Lee, Keith Harmon and Mac Hill, "Microphone Rack" is intended for parking bicycles. A number of other conceptual bike racks were placed around the city at the same time. The lifesized Owen Bradley at piano sculpture dates from 1999 by sculptor Gary Ernest Smith.
