Nashville Council Member Delishia Porterfield, regarding the 30-3 council vote against the proposed sign for country singer Morgan Wallen’s This Bar & Tennessee Kitchen. The singer caused controversy in 2021 for his use of a racial slur and recently faced criminal charges after he was accused of throwing a chair off a rooftop near two police officers. The sign would hang over a public sidewalk, similar to those at many neighboring bars, and requires local government approval. (Associated Press — May 22, 2024)
