About 5 years ago i watched Music City wrestling with Bert Prentice late at night on a Philadelphia station. Due to a job change I could'nt stay up late anymore, and I lost track of it. When did this promotion cease to exist and what were the circumstances?

You were watching TV late at night with Bert Prentice?
Plans may have changed, but the idea was that NWA-TNA would show highlights from the PPVs and use interviews and promos on Prentice's TV show to build up the weekly Wednesday night shows. Meanwhile Prentice's crew would tape some dark matches at the PPV that would be shown on his TV show. The Prentice crew would then run spot shows in the area.
Basic summary, since anything involving Bert Prentice is extremely complex and difficult to explain:
Music City Wrestling was based out of Nashville and owned and operated by Bert and Bill Behrens.
After Behrens joined the NWA in 1998, they changed their name to NWA Worldwide. Bill also began running shows in Georgia under the Music City Georgia banner, which was later renamed NWA Georgia after he gained territorial rights there. Eventually, he would hook up with Steve Martin's National Championship Wrestling to form NWA Wildside.
NWA Worldwide was sold to Mike Porter sometime in 2000 I believe, who officially became a member and was granted territorial rights to Nashville by Behrens. He briefly changed the name of the group to NWA Nashville before it was renamed NWA Main Event last year.
As far as Bert goes, he's ran a couple of groups since then, co-promoting with Porter on and off, even starting back up under the Music City Wrestling banner briefly. Apparently, he and Behrens still own the rights to that name.
