Fact Sheet: Let Freedom Sing! Music City July 4th

NASHVILLE Let Freedom Sing! Music City July 4th presented by Dr Pepper will feature country music superstar Brad Paisley headlining during the free concert on Lower Broadway. The event will feature the largest fireworks show in Nashville history with the pyrotechnics synchronized to a live performance by the GRAMMY-winning Nashville Symphony. Symphony Music Director Giancarlo Guerrero will be conducting. An event map is available.

The diverse concert lineup includes rocker Lilly Hiatt, the R&B-funk-jazz sounds of Regi Wooten and Friends and country rock-southern pop artist Priscilla Block. Jason Eskridge will perform the National Anthem, and veteran-support group Operation Song will kick off the live music. Sirius XM host Storme Warren will serve as emcee on the First and Broadway stage with media personality Kelly Sutton hosting at Ascend Amphitheater.

The event is expected to be the largest live Independence Day celebration in the country this year, according to the American Pyrotechnics Association. Features making this the largest live Independence Day event include: All live music (no recorded performances) from 4-10 p.m.; expectation of record-breaking crowds; 30-minutes of pyrotechnics; and an A-list headliner in Paisley.

Let Freedom Sing! Music City July 4th presented by Dr Pepper is a free, family-friendly event created to entertain Nashvillians and attract visitors to generate economic activity and tax revenue for the city. The event has regularly drawn more than 200,000 – and as many as 343,000 in 2019 and 250,000 in 2018. This will be the 18th annual celebration produced by the Nashville Convention & Visitors Corp and the 37th in the city.

The concert stage will be located at First and Broadway, and the Nashville Symphony will perform at Ascend Amphitheater at the conclusion of the multi-genre concert. No drones or livestream permitted.

Let Freedom Sing! is Nashville’s first major event in over a year. Due to COVID-19, last year’s event was reworked as a television show with no public concert, spectators or fireworks. Paisley, who was previously scheduled to headline in 2020, agreed to come this year instead.

Paisley is a GRAMMY-winning singer, songwriter, guitarist and entertainer who has written 21 of his 24 No. 1 hits. He has been a member of the Grand Ole Opry since 2001 and was named CMA Entertainer of the year in 2010.  He and his wife, Kimberly Williams-Paisley, are co-founders of a nonprofit organization called The Store, a free-referral based grocery store.

Lilly Hiatt
Written during a winter of deep stillness and self-reflection, Lilly Hiatt’s striking new album, Walking Proof, artfully balances the songwriter’s rough rock and roll exterior with her tender, country roots, exuding a bold vulnerability as she takes a long, hard look in the mirror and deconstructs her relationship with herself and the world around her. Produced by former Cage the Elephant guitarist Lincoln Parish and featuring guest appearances from Amanda Shires, Aaron Lee Tasjan, and legendary songwriter John Hiatt (who appears on record with his daughter here for the very first time), the collection is fueled by longing and gratitude in equal measure, effortlessly shifting from gentle intimacy to brawny grit and back over the course of its eleven insightful tracks. lillyhiatt.com
