“Sober Saturday Night” singer Chris Young will be taking over Nashville’s July 4 celebration by headlining a free concert in downtown Music City.
The Nashville Convention & Visitors Corp recently announced that the GRAMMY-nominated country artist will be headlining this year’s festivities. Joining him in performing near Riverfront Park in downtown Nashville will be Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, R&B artist Johnny P, and the folk-rock duo The Sisterhood, featuring Alyssa Bonagura and Ruby Stewart, daughter of rock icon Rod Stewart.
“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’s event offers up even more to the public and the Nashville Convention & Visitors Corp expect the turnout to be bigger than ever. “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,” added Seigenthaler.
Let Freedom Sing! July 4 in Music City is a free, family-friendly event that showcases the GRAMMY-winning Nashville Symphony and the largest fireworks show in the country. For more information, visit the event’s official website.
