AT&T and NCVC to Present Free, Exclusive Livestream of Music City July 4th
AT&T to Provide High-Speed Content Streaming of the Largest July 4th Fireworks Display in the Country
NASHVILLE—AT&T and Nashville will offer a free, exclusive livestream of Music City July 4th: Let Freedom Sing!, the Nashville Convention & Visitors Corp (NCVC) announced today. The event will feature more firework shells than any other fireworks display in the country and will be synchronized to live music performed by the GRAMMY®-winning Nashville Symphony.
“Our big event just got even bigger,” said Butch Spyridon, president and CEO of the NCVC. “Allowing the rest of the world to view what we are doing here in Nashville to celebrate the nation’s birthday has been on our list of priorities for years. We want to make sure that people who can’t come to town can view the largest fireworks display wherever they are and hopefully entice them to join us in Nashville for future years. It’s a timely addition for the event and we couldn’t have done it without AT&T’s invaluable partnership.”
As the exclusive communications sponsor, AT&T will make the free livestream available via computer and mobile devices on www.uverse.com/nashvillejuly4live and www.visitmusiccity.com/nashvillejuly4live.
“For more than a hundred years, AT&T has connected Nashvillians using the latest technology,” said AT&T Tennessee President Joelle Phillips. “That tradition continues as we join with NCVC to livestream Nashville’s 4th of July display. The livestream will enable people around the globe to share the experience as Nashville combines the nation’s biggest fireworks display with one of country’s most powerful voices.”
AT&T’s livestream will feature Nashville’s complete July 4th fireworks show choreographed to live music played by the Nashville Symphony. Prior to the fireworks, AT&T will also livestream the July 4th concert featuring GRAMMY®-nominated artist Mikky Ekko and headliner Martina McBride, four-time CMA Female Vocalist of the Year, beginning at 6:30 p.m. CDT.
