Sheryl Crow To Headline Music City Center Grand Opening Concert

SHERYLCROWNashville resident Sheryl Crow will headline the Music City Center grand opening and free outdoor concert on Monday, May 20. Festivities are open to the public during the two-day celebration taking place on Sunday, May 19 and Monday, May 20.

The concert will highlight the multiple genres of music represented in Nashville, including pop, gospel, country and bluegrass. The concert also will feature performances by The Time Jumpers, the Grammy-nominated bluegrass act featuring Vince Gill; Fisk Jubilee Singers; and Mikky Ekko, a singer-songwriter who was most recently featured in Rihanna’s chart-topping duet “Stay.”

“I can’t think of a more fitting way to open the Music City Center than with a diverse lineup of great music representing the best of what Music City has to offer,” Mayor Karl Dean said.

The concert will take place from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Monday, May 20. The star-studded lineup will be followed by a fireworks display produced by Pyro Shows.

“The opening of the Music City Center is an important milestone in the city’s history, and I am honored to have been asked to perform,” Crow said. “Nashville is home to some of the world’s best musicians and songwriters, and that creativity is one of the many reasons why I live here.”

Mayor Dean will present his State of Metro address at the Music City Center at 10 a.m. on May 20 as part of the grand opening festivities. A free open house will take place both Sunday and Monday.

The grand opening is being organized by the Mayor’s Office, the Nashville Convention & Visitors Corp. and the Nashville Convention Center Authority.
