Chris Young to Headline Fourth of July Concert in Nashville
Chris Young will help celebrate America's 241st birthday by headlining Nashville's Let Freedom Sing! July 4 in Music City concert this summer. Young will perform on a stage set up on Nashville's main street downtown known as Broadway near Riverfront Park in front of the Cumberland River.
The lineup for the free, family-friendly event also includes the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, R&B singer Johnny P and folk-rock duo the Sisterhood, which features Rod Stewart's daughter Ruby. The Nashville Symphony is also set to give a synchronized score during the event's grand finale of a 30-minute spectacular fireworks show.
“This is another great lineup that showcases the immense diversity of music that calls Nashville home,” Beth Seigenthaler Courtney, board chair of the Nashville Convention & Visitors Corp, says in a press release.
Young recently celebrated his ninth No. 1 with "Sober Saturday Night," giving him his third consecutive hit off the album I’m Comin’ Over, following the title track and duet with Cassadee Pope on "Think of You." The collaboration earned Young and Pope a 2017 Grammy nomination for Best Country Duo/Group Performance, in addition to a nod at the 2017 ACM Awards for Vocal Event of the Year. The album itself topped Billboard's Top Country Albums chart after its release in 2015.
Young will also serve as one of the headliners at the 2017 Headwaters Country Jam near Three Forks, Mont. in June along with Randy Houser and Frankie Ballard.
