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 on Thursday (March 3).
Crow’s concert will be followed by the Nashville Symphony Orchestra accompanying the fireworks show. Also sharing the bill are Maddie & Tae, Erin McCarley, and Andrew Combs. Ruby Amanfu will open the free concert at 5 p.m. by starting her set with the National Anthem.
“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,” Levitan added.
There will be two main stages – the Jack Daniel’s Stage at Ascend Amphitheater and the Music City Stage at The Green at Riverfront Park. The Green is the grassy park space behind Ascend Amphitheater in the new section of Riverfront Park. Multiple screens will be placed throughout the event sites. Festivities will also take place on July 3, starting at 3 p.m. All times and artists subject to change.
