atkinsThis is the fifth year for the free concert, which is sponsored by Carl Black Chevrolet, Wrangler, and ALLY Financial and was originally launched in 2011 as a fundraiser for Nashvillians who suffered losses in the prior year’s devastating flood. Proceeds from this year’s show will support the W.O. Smith Music School.

“I’m grateful to be hosting this special event for the fifth year in a row alongside a stellar group of artists,” said Atkins. “It truly means a lot to be able to give back through what I love to do most – play music.”

DJ Silver will be on hand to kick off the festivities at 6:00 p.m. between 2nd and 3rd Avenue on Broadway, and select artists will sign autographs from 12:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. The show will also be streamed live by Chevrolet and Wrangler.

America’s Morning Show host Blair Garner will return along with media partners NASH and NASH ICON.
