Work stalls on rebuilding burned music hall

NASHVILLE, Ind. (AP) — No construction has started at a southern Indiana concert hall destroyed in a 2009 fire even though a sign there suggests a 2013 reopening.

The owner of the Little Nashville Opry property in Brown County has faced delays because a new music venue will have to be connected to Nashville's sewer system.

Brown County planning director Dave Woods tells The Herald-Times that a current sewer line must be extended about a half mile to reach the Opry property. Officials say the town and county are working with owner Scott Wayman on how to pay for the work.

Wayman bought the site last year and says he still hopes for construction to start this year.

The Opry's former manager is scheduled to face trial in July on arson charges.
