NASHVILLE, TN — Country star Chris Young will headline this year’s July 4 concert in Nashville, which will also include performances by the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Johnny P, The Sisterhood, and, of course, the Nashville Symphony, which will perform along with the largest fireworks display in the country.
“This is another great lineup that showcases the immense diversity of music that calls Nashville home,” said Beth Seigenthaler Courtney, board chair of the Nashville Convention & Visitors Corp and president at DVL Seigenthaler. “This year we have even more to offer with additional live music at Ascend Amphitheater leading up to a Gold Cup double-header featuring the U.S. national men’s soccer team. We always expect tens of thousands of visitors to enjoy our Independence Day festivities, and, with these additional activities, we expect to fill even more hotel rooms across Davidson County and generate substantial economic activity that is good for the city.”
The CVC is touting the free July 4 event as a kickoff to a busy weekend in Nashville. MercyMe will be in concert at Ascend Amphitheater on July 6; My Morning Jacket and Margo Price then hit Ascend Amphitheater on July 7; and the Gold Cup double-header featuring the U.S. Men’s National Team takes place on July 8 at Nissan Stadium.
