Musica Statue Nashville

Musica - Nashville

Musica is a statue sculpted by local artist Alan LeQuire which was unveiled in 2003. It is located in a traffic roundabout at Music Row (known as Buddy Killen Circle). It features nine nude figures dancing in a circle, while the top one holds a tambourine. Each figure is about 15 feet tall and the entire statue is 38 feet.

Upon its unveiling, it was controversial as some people didn't want nude statues in the Bible Belt. It was the scene of a famous prank on St. Patrick's Day 2010 when some locals dressed the statues in Irish garb. Other similar pranks over the years include Nashville Predator jerseys during their Stanley Cup playoff appearance and facemasks during the 2020 pandemic.
