Nashville Cancels July 4th Concert, Shifts Fireworks Display To TV

Brad Paisley.

Let Freedom Sing! Music City July 4th, Nashville’s annual 4th of July celebration downtown, will look a bit different this year understandably, and will this year honor healthcare heroes, first responders and frontline workers with a televised fireworks show. No artists will be performing this year, and no spectators will be allowed in the parks, but a short fireworks display set to recorded music by Nashville artists will air locally on NewsChannel 5.

Brad Paisley, who was previously scheduled to headline this year’s July 4th event, will instead headline the event in 2021.

“The community deserves a celebration and our healthcare and frontline workers deserve to be honored,” said Butch Spyridon, President and CEO, Nashville Convention & Visitors Corp. “Music City has consistently had one of the largest July 4th celebrations in the nation, and while the crowds will be asked to stay home this year and our fireworks display will be minimal, we still wanted to find a way to celebrate our country and our city during this difficult time.”
