NASHVILLE - The new, 2,000-seat indoor concert venue in Brown County is now set for a late summer opening. The Brown County Convention and Visitors Bureau says the venue has officially been named the Brown County Music Center and details of the first performance at the $12.5 million facility will be announced later this month.

The Nashville facility had previously been named the Maple Leaf Performing Arts Center. However, the county says it decided to brand the venue "with Brown County's strong identity as a beloved Indiana destination, as well as clearly denote what guests can expect to experience."

The Brown County Music Center will host several national acts, as well as regional and local performances. The opening performance will be unveiled April 15 and tickets will go on sale this month as well.

Plans for the venue were first announced in June 2017 and officials broke ground on the project a year later
