Nashville Sounds Introduce New Logo

Nashville Sounds New Logo 2015

Just a few weeks after switching their Major League affiliate from the Milwaukee Brewers to the Oakland Athletics, the Nashville Sounds are now switching up their logos and uniforms. It’s all a part of their complete organization re-branding, new affiliation, new logo, new colour, new uniforms, and a new stadium, just in time for the 2015 season.

The new logo is designed by Brandiose, the star of the Minor League logo circuit. It features a guitar pick with a stylized N on it and (according to the press release) will be the first professional sports logo to incorporate neon orange into their colour scheme.

“With this new logo scheme, we wanted to capture the vibrant nature of the city, of downtown Nashville. There is nothing more striking than burnt orange – you see it everywhere in this town… The Nashville Sounds name has always reflected what this city is all about — musical sounds. With our new look, we want to really celebrate ‘this is Music City.’ We have incorporated a number of fun new elements, which you’ll see as we unveil more in the future.” –  Sounds assistant GM Brandon Yerger

The logo replaces what the Sounds had been using since 1998, their first season in the PCL. The previous logo, seen below, made no connection to Nashville’s musical legacy, however they did wear a ballcap with a music note featured.

The Sounds are expected to unveil the rest of their new identity including alternate logos and team uniforms at a season ticket holder event next month.
