The threat comes just two days after a huge explosion rocked Downtown Nashville on Christmas Day.
The blast, occurring on a mostly deserted street, was prefaced a recording warning those nearby to evacuate.
Investigators have been searching the home of Anthony Quinn Warner, 63, who has been identified as a person of interest in the bombing.
Friday’s blast emanated from a white RV parked outside the AT&T building on 2nd Avenue at 6.40 am. The explosion injured three people and caused severe damage to the city’s downtown area.
