“Empire” is one of the hottest shows on television.
We’ve all followed Lucious, Cookie and their three sons build a giant-record label, launching them all to fame and fortune.
The music business is tough and one of Nashville’s oldest record labels and recording studios is out to try and accomplish the same thing.
Lorenzo Washington and Jesse Boyce run Jefferson Street Sound.
The label is known as the first black recording studio on music row. The duo moved back to Jefferson Street and works to preserve old soul, R&B and hip hop music and record new records on the top floor.

Jefferson Street Sound hopes to accomplish their own Empire climbing the ranks just as Lucious did.
The business partners of Jefferson Street continue to be inspired by “Empire” and the rags to riches storyline.
