Rodney Atkins has tapped Kip Moore to close his seventh “Music City Gives Back” concert set to take place in downtown Nashville on Tuesday, June 6 at an outdoor stage near 5th Avenue and Demonbreun Street. The annual event, which Atkins launched in 2010 to raise support for those affected by devastating floods in the Nashville community that year, has grown exponentially since its inception and will benefit Nashville’s W.O. Smith Music School this year. Atkins will also perform during the June 6 show, with Granger Smith, Cole Taylor and Brett Young rounding out the 2017 lineup.
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 line up. For continuing updates, follow Music City Gives Back at www.Facebook.com/MusicCityGivesBack
