Brett Eldredge is set to headline an explosive night of music and patriotism in Nashville this Fourth of July. The lovable country chart topper will lead the lineup for the city’s Let Freedom Sing! Music City July 4th presented by Dr Pepper – which this year may actually stretch out over multiple days.
Eldredge will take center stage for what promises to be another huge crowd at the free, all-ages showcase on Lower Broadway. He’ll share the spotlight with “My Girl” and “Hooked” hit maker Dylan Scott, plus 10-time CMA Musician of the Year Mac McAnally, Jessy Wilson, The Joe West Band and more, who will all be on hand for performances throughout the day at the corner of 5th Avenue and Broadway.
Later that night the action will shift down to the Cumberland River and Ascend Amphitheater, where the Grammy-winning Nashville Symphony will take over at 9:30 p.m. for a special performance culminating in a massive, 30-minute fireworks show. It promises to be one of the largest fireworks displays in the country – and it all will be synchronized with the Symphony’s performance. Meanwhile, CMT will air a live, 90-minute special that includes performances from Eldredge, highlights from Let Freedom Sing! and the entire firework show.
But in a new twist for 2019, the fun may get started a little earlier. On July 3rd, Nashville’s Nissan Stadium is playing host to semifinal action of the international Gold Cup soccer tournament, and the Nashville Convention and Visitors Center – which oversees the city’s Fourth of July celebration – says “enhancements” for that event will also be announced soon.
“Once again, Nashville will host a world-class July 4th event, and, with Gold Cup activities on July 3rd, we have the potential to turn this holiday into a five-day extended weekend for locals and visitors alike to enjoy soccer, music, fireworks and so much more that Nashville offers,” says Ronnie Smith, Chairman of the NCVC board of directors. “The CMT broadcast will provide yet another opportunity to showcase this stellar celebration and our great live music to a national audience.”
Eldredge’s current single is the romantic Top 20 hit, “Love Someone.” He’s off to Australia for a short series of dates at the end of April, and will be back on the road stateside all summer.
