The guitar-shaped scoreboard at First Horizon Park in Nashville, Tennessee was designed by Populous and Hastings Architectural Associates. The ballpark was constructed by Barton Malow and Bell & Associates Construction.
The scoreboard is a successor to the original guitar scoreboard at Greer Stadium. Greer Stadium opened in 1978 for the Nashville Sounds, an expansion franchise of the Double-A Southern League. The Sounds moved to the Triple-A American Association in 1985 and to the Triple-A Pacific Coast League in 1998.
First Horizon Park opened in 2015 as First Tennessee Park. It replaced the aging and outdated Greer Stadium. The 10,000-seat, $56M ballpark received rave reviews from fans and players.

The Nashville Sounds, a baseball team in the International League and the Triple-A affiliate of the Milwaukee Brewers, call Nashville, Tennessee, their home. The team’s name pays homage to the city’s strong connection with the music industry, particularly the renowned “Nashville sound,” a subgenre of country music that gained popularity in the mid-1950s. First Horizon Park, established in 2015 on the site of the historic Sulphur Dell ballpark, serves as their home stadium. Prior to that, the Sounds played at Herschel Greer Stadium from its inception in 1978 until the conclusion of the 2014 season. Notably, they hold the distinction of being the longest-running professional sports franchise in Nashville.
