The historic Bennie Dillon building is located on the corner of Church Street and Seventh Avenue in downtown Nashville, TN. Originally built as offices in 1927 for doctors, lawyers, and financial companies, the BD was described by the architectural firm of Asmus and Clark as "Italian Renaissance Revival" based upon the building's Gothic design. Today, the Bennie Dillon is the only 20th century renaissance revival high-rise in Nashville that is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The BD was renovated from offices to residential living in 1984, and was completely renovated in 1999 and then again in 2006.
The TV show "Nashville" is filmed on location in the city and not just on a soundstage, but in and around Nashville.

Homewood Suites by Hilton Nashville-Downtown is adjacent the Bennie Dillon, and is the site of Highway 65 Records on the show (Ryna James's recording studio). The logo is on the hotel windows facing Church Street. Check out "NASHVILLE" - ON LOCATION for information on scenes filmed around Nashville. "Nashville" is currently on their fifth season.
