Rodney Atkins will host his seventh annual “Music City Gives Back” concert on Tuesday, June 6th, unofficially kicking off a week of country music festivities in Nashville ahead of the CMT Music Awards and CMA Music Festival. The popular star-studded event, which benefits W.O. Smith Music School, will take place near 5th Avenue and Demonbreun Street in downtown Nashville and will include performances by Atkins and more artists to be announced in the coming days.
“Nashville is a special place in the way that people in this community truly support one another and this is another great example of Nashville and the music industry coming together to support the kids and future of our community,” said Atkins. “As an artist, I’m blessed to be able to call Nashville home and grateful for the opportunity to give back through music with this event every year.”
The concert is free and open to the public and performances will begin at 4:55 p.m. Select artists will also be available to sign autographs in the free, no-ticket-required sponsor activation area from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., where guests can have a drink, get some food and meet their favorite artists.
Carl Black Chevrolet, Wrangler and Ally are returning for the seventh year as presenting sponsors for Music City Gives Back. Carl Black Chevrolet will stream the performances and behind the scenes interviews live on both CarlBlackRadio.com and TuneIn Radio’s Country Roads, and Wrangler will stream live on WranglerNetwork.com.
Returning media partners NASH FM 103.3 and 95.5 NASH ICON will also be on site to emcee the event and introduce the star-studded lineup. For continuing updates and artist announcements, follow Music City Gives Back at www.Facebook.com/MusicCityGivesBack
