This year’s theme is “Mashville: The Music City in 2016.” The event will feature performances from Urban, Gill, Luke Bryan, Peter Frampton, Florida Georgia Line, Emmylou Harris, Sam Hunt, Jason Isbell, Maddie and Tae, and Maren Morris.
“Nashville has become a dynamic and diverse musical melting pot,” Urban said of this year’s theme in a prepared statement. “While it remains the home of country music, an unbelievably talented community of songwriters, producers, instrumentalists, singers, bands and solo artists are rapidly changing the entire musical landscape in Music City U.S.A.”
