Live Nation and Graystone Quarry announced that FirstBank will be the first name-in-title sponsor of a brand new amphitheater located in Thompson’s Station at the southern border of Franklin, Tennessee.
The nearly completed FirstBank Amphitheater, is in a completely authentic open-air Tennessee environment nestled on a 138-acre site convenient to Nashville and the surrounding cities. Located within a beautiful wooded, natural stone and park-like setting, it’s planned to open later this year for memorable music experiences whenever fans and artists can gather for concerts again.
“We are thankful for this opportunity,” says Chris Holmes, president and CEO of FirstBank. “It was evident from the very beginning that our partners share many of the same values as FirstBank, especially our dedication to the local community and our commitment to excellence. We know this top-of-the-line entertainment venue will provide memorable experiences for the community for years to come.”
The venue will have room for up to 7,500 concert attendees and a spacious 1.5-acre plaza area for gathering, dining and merchandise. The facility will feature state-of-the-art sound, event lighting and large screen image amplification.
“FirstBank has exactly the qualities we wanted in a naming sponsor—friendly people, strong presence in the local community and a history of delivering amazing financial services in the South,” says Rick McEachern, owner of Graystone Quarry. “We were looking for a naming sponsor who is as committed and invested in Tennessee as we are.”
The base of the new FirstBank Amphitheater is situated on a limestone rock quarry surrounded by cliffs up to 100 feet tall, creating a dramatic outdoor location with ideal visual and acoustic space for music events. The reclaimed quarry was active 50 years ago, with the rock used in the construction of Interstate 65 through Williamson County.
“We are excited to have FirstBank on board as we bring this incredible venue to life in Tennessee,” says Bob Roux, president of Live Nation Concerts. “There is no doubt they will be incredible partners in the community, and we can’t wait until we are able to work together to bring shows back to the area and unite artists and fans together again.”
