Justin Timberlake wants MLB to expand to Music City

Justin Timberlake wants to bring Major League Baseball to his home state. The Memphis native has joined Music City Baseball, a group that is gaining popularity and wishes to get a baseball team to Nashville, Tennessee. Music City Baseball is “gaining momentum” in their quest to get a team to Tennessee, and plans to call a potential team the Nashville Stars, which would honor the Negro League team that played in Nashville.

Here’s what Justin Timberlake told the local Tennessean paper about joining the group:

“I am thrilled to be involved in the movement to bring Major League Baseball to the great state of Tennessee. I believe in Music City Baseball’s vision of linking baseball and music in a unique way to unite and entertain people and I am excited to help generate awareness throughout the community as we share our vision for bringing MLB to Music City.”

Timberlake joins the “MLB to Nashville” efforts just a few months after baseball executive Dave Dombrowski hopped on board as an investor.

John Loar, leader of Music City Baseball, wanted to get a recognizable name from the state’s music scene. Timberlake, who is also a minority owner of the Memphis Grizzlies, was an obvious choice.

Adding key investors is far from the end of the battle to bring MLB to Music City as they still need to work out on majority ownership, financing, building a stadium, paying for the stadium and territorial rights. The Music City Baseball’s Music Industry Advisors committee also includes the acts of Kix Brooks, Kane Brown, Eric Church, Luke Combs, Larry Gatlin and others, the Tennessean reports.
