    Boudleaux and Felice Bryant Fountains of Musica

    A magnificent bronze statue created by the Nashville artist Alan LeQuire in 2003. It is the largest bronze figure group in the US featuring 40-feet-tall nine figures who are celebrating in a circle the joy and happiness of music. The statue is located in a wide roundabout at the entrance to Music Row and is considered as one of the symbols of Nashville.
     
    On May 31st, 2019, it was renamed to Boudleaux and Felice Bryant Fountains of Musica, honoring Felice and Boudleaux Bryant, the first professional songwriters of Nashville, representing all the songwriters who made Nashville a musical Mecca.
     
    Felice Bryant was born as Matilda Scaduto to an Italian family in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. She had a passion for writing poetry from a young age. When she was 19 years old, she met her soul mate, Boudleaux, a violin player, who arrived to perform in the hotel Felice worked as an elevator operator. They became a couple in their personal and professional life, writing songs together. The beginning was hard, but they managed to build themselves with several hits till they moved to Nashville and became the city’s first professional songwriters. Over the years, the Bryants wrote more than 6,000 songs, 1,500 of which were recorded, earned 59 BMI country, pop, and R&B music awards, and raised 2 sons.
     
    The statue will be upgraded in 2020 to have water fountains around it.
