Musicians Corner will kick off its fall season on September 1 with free music from 3-6 pm with main stage performances by The Blind Boys of Alabama, Karen Elson, a Nashville Symphony quartet, Jeremy Lister and acoustic stage performances by Anthony Snape, Chelsea Gill, and The Carmonas.

Over 20 food trucks will participate in the 1st Annual Nashville Street Food Awards presented by the Nashville Food Truck Association, which will be judged by a panel. A portion of the proceeds to benefit Musicians Corner and Second Harvest of Middle Tennessee.

“Musicians Corner was among the first to support food trucks in Nashville,” said B.J. Lofback, President of the Nashville Food Truck Association. “As we’ve grown in number we’re thrilled to support them back.”

The regular Saturday gathering will take place through October 27 with a Beer & Wine Garden featuring local brands Yazoo, Hap and Harry’s, and Arrington Vineyards. Weekly Dog of the Day Awards will be handed out and free craft activities are available for children. The season includes over 60 multi-genre musical performers including Sam Bush, Kenny Vaughan, Sixpence None The Richer, The Black Lillies, Hoots and Hellmouth, Regi Wooten & Friends, Ashley Cleveland, Matthew Perryman Jones, Phil Keaggy, The Farewell Drifters, Shannon Whitworth, Yarn, The SteelDrivers, Shannon Sanders, Andrew Combs, VITEK, and The Vespers.
