Performers, New Location Named For Music City July 4

The Nashville Convention & Visitors Bureau has announced The Mavericks will headline the city’s annual Music City July 4th: Let Freedom Sing! celebration.

The multi-day July 3-4 event will expand to the grassy field along First Avenue south of Shelby Street Pedestrian Bridge, dubbed “The Lawn at Riverfront Park.” With a goal to increase capacity for visitors and vendors, the new campus will replace previous location Riverfront Park, which will feature a jumbotron of the concert.

“Each year, our goal for this event is to bring more visitors to town and to maximize economic impact. These changes help us do that,” said Butch Spyridon, President of the Convention & Visitors Bureau. “Using this 11-acre site will allow us to accommodate roughly 20,000 additional people.”

Additional performers at the event include Craig Morgan, Sarah Darling, The Music City Hit-Makers featuring songwriters Brett James and Hillary Lindsey and the Nashville Symphony Orchestra led by Associate Conductor Kelly CorcoranStorme Warren will again emcee.

Festivities will begin Tuesday, July 3 with a free concert at The Lawn at Riverfront Park beginning at 6 pm. The July 4th celebration begins at noon with live music on the pre-show stage. The official concert will kick off at 6:45 pm. The show will air on Sirius XM.

The events culminate with the “South’s largest fireworks show” choreographed to live music.
