We have an updated look for the Nashville Sounds (Class AAA; Pacific Coast League), as the team continues its extreme makeover for the 2015 season.
Virtually everything about the team will new for the 2015 season: new ballpark, new uniforms, new parent (Oakland A’s), new logo, new leader in the front office (Doug Scopel). And the team has already changed the look of the new logo, abandoning a woody color scheme to the classic red and black colors that the team has worn for the past 16 years while adding in a new platinum silver accent color.
“We heard loud and clear the strong feedback of our fans after our new logo was unveiled last fall. We have made the decision to return to our traditional red and black color scheme to accompany the new Nashville-styled logos,” said Sounds owner Frank Ward.
The team’s new identity, from Brandiose, a San Diego company, pays tribute to Nashville as the world-famous “Music City.” The centerpiece of the identity is a new guitar pick “N” logo stylized from an f-hole on a guitar. The logos feature Music City style lettering and the platinum silver color is a reference to platinum records associated with the music industry.
“Nashville is the only entertainment city in America that proudly claims itself as Music City. Yet Nashville hasn’t had an official badge they can wear around the country that proclaims, ‘Music City is my home,'” said Brandiose’s Jason Klein. “The new logo scheme achieves this.”
The Sounds’ new uniforms will feature home white jerseys, gray road jerseys, and an alternate black “Music City” jersey that will be paired with black pants for all Friday home games to create a striking, all-black look. Fans will also enjoy the baseball guitar emblem hat, which will be worn during batting practice and in Sunday home games.
