Luke Bryan is shifting into high gear as he preps the release of his forthcoming new album 'Tailgates and Tanlines,' and the singer will do so by playing a free, one-hour gig at the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville on July 20. The show, part of the annual Samsung AT&T Summer Krush series, starts at 7 PM.

It doesn't get much better than a free show smack dab in the middle of summer, so if you are in Music City, take advantage of some live entertainment that won't cost you a dime. Tickets are available via radio promotions, street teams and online registration at this location.

The show represents that fourth annual Samsung AT&T Summer Krush series, where acts of all genres perform in major cities. Bryan's "genremates" the Band Perry will also perform as part of the series later this summer.

Don't fret if you can't make it to the show in the flesh, since the footage will be aired a few weeks later on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' on August 11. Since 'Tailgates and Tanlines' lands on August 9, we're going to be experiencing plenty of Luke Bryan in the next couple weeks, and we'll be sure to look for a Luke Bryan media blitz to take place on national TV. With this opportunity, Bryan will bring a little slice of Nashville to the national stage.

So be sure to mark your calendar and tune in on August 11 if you miss the actual show.
