First Tennessee Bank has secured the naming rights to the proposed Nashville Sounds stadium with a letter of intent.

If the project is approved by the city of Nashville, the bank will commit $4.125 million over 15 years, or $275,000 a year, for the naming rights partnership, according to First Tennessee Nashville Region President Mike Edwards.

The Sounds presented the proposed project, which would be built on the Thermal Transfer site downtown, to the Sports Authority this morning.
