TODAY there’s going to be a FREE all-star concert taking place on 5th Avenue South,between Demonbreun Street and Korean Veterans Boulevard (right in front of the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum). It’s in celebration of the release of Dylan, Cash, and the Nashville Cats: A New Music City, a two-disc audio companion to the exhibit in the same name. Artists to perform include John Carter Cash and Ana Cristina, Julie Christensen, Radney Foster, Jeff Hanna (Nitty Gritty Dirt Band), Jamie Hartford, Al Kooper, and more (see full list below).
The event is also completely family friendly as face painting activities and balloon artists will be on site for children to enjoy. If you get hungry some of Nashville’s food trucks will be there to provide the cuisine for the day and you can also head over to Bajo Sexto Tacos for a nice glass of wine, beer, or a margarita. AND the first 500 attendees to arrive will receive a commemorative Hatch Show Print poster. It ALL begins at 5pm with the music starting at 6pm.
Also, if you have not seen the exhibit Dylan, Cash, and the Nashville Cats: A New Music City we highly suggest you check it out before attending the concert. It tells the story of Nashville’s music scene in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Head on over early, see the exhibit, and then get ready for an outstanding FREE concert that night. Have fun!
