Each and every year leading into CMA Music Festival, Rodney Atkins’ Music City Gives Back kicks off the music-filled week in downtown Nashville with a bang and mission– to give back to kids and schools through music.
This year’s show is no different, it’s just changing up its schedule a bit to also support everyone’s favorite hockey team, the Nashville Predators, during the Stanley Cup Finals. The show is usually scheduled for the Tuesday of CMA Music Festival, but organizers moved it up a day to coincide with game 4 of the Finals.
The 2017 concert will benefit the W.O. Smith Music School and is free to the public. The first set begins at 1pm– Cole Taylor, Granger Smith, Brett Young, Kip Moore and Rodney Atkins will be taking the stage this year.
Autograph sessions will also be happening throughout the day.
Event sponsors Carl Black Chevrolet and Wrangler will livestream the performances for those who can’t get downtown. Afterwards, fans are invited to stick around and watch the Predators take on the Pittsburgh Penguins.
TuneIn Radio will also be airing the show live.
