NASHVILLE –
Nine time GRAMMY-winner Sheryl Crow will headline
Nashville’s July 4 celebration, which will include six acts in concert
on two stages at Ascend Amphitheater and The Green at Riverfront Park,
the Nashville Convention & Visitors Corp announced today.
Let Freedom Sing! July 4 in Music City
presented by Dr Pepper is a free, family-friendly event that also
showcases the GRAMMY-winning Nashville Symphony Orchestra and one of the
largest fireworks shows in
the country.
“With
two stages and six acts, our free July 4 concert will showcase the
great talent and the diversity of genres creating and performing music
in Music City,” said Ken Levitan, board chair of the Nashville
Convention & Visitors Corp and co-president of Vector Management.
“This exciting new location will be a great venue for attendees to see
and hear all the free music, and it will open up Lower Broadway
for those interested in viewing the spectacular fireworks show. We
expect tens of thousands of visitors to enjoy our Independence Day
festivities, filling up hotel rooms across Davidson County and
generating economic activity that is good for the city.”
This
year’s diverse line-up pays particular homage to Nashville’s strong
indie and alternative scene and features Erin McCarley, Andrew Combs
and Ruby Amanfu, who will open the free concert at 5 p.m. by starting
her set with the National Anthem. Also sharing the bill is breakout
country duo Maddie & Tae. Crow will headline the concert, followed
by the Nashville Symphony Orchestra, which will be
led by Associate Conductor Vinay Parameswaran, accompanying the
fireworks show.
