Plans are being made for a large, outdoor concert to celebrate the grand opening of Nashville’s new Music City Center. The concert will be held on May 20 in downtown Nashville.
Grammy-winning artist Sheryl Crow tops the list of performers who will take the stage to kick-off the grand opening. The free outdoor concert will also include performances by The Time Jumpers, Mikky Ekko and the Fisk Jubilee Singers.
“The opening of the Music City Center is an important milestone in the city’s history, and I am honored to have been asked to perform,” Crow said in a release from Mayor Karl Dean’s office Monday morning. “Nashville is home to some of the world’s best musicians and songwriters, and that creativity is one of the many reasons why I live here.”
Dean will give his annual State of Metro address at the Music City Center at 10 a.m. on May 20.
Be sure to add this fun (and free!) Nashville event to your calendar and come together with your fellow Nashvillians to celebrate the long-awaited opening of the Music City Center!
