With many millions of Americans celebrating Independence Day across the country this weekend, Music City offered an unforgettable evening with one of the biggest events in the country featuring live music and fireworks down on First and Broadway. This year's event, "Let Freedom Sing! Music City July 4th", featured Brad Paisley on the Music City stage and guests including Joe Bonamassa and Kelsea Ballerini bringing in a estimated new record of 350,000 people in attendance.
Brad is no stranger to Nashville or songwriting. He has written 21 of his 24 number one hits in his career to date and a member of the Grand Ole Opry since 2001. Brad is closely involved with the Nashville community on a variety of projects. Three years ago he partnered with Belmont University to open free referral-based grocery store to help those in need. Yesterday, Tennessee Governor Bill Lee and Brad Paisley announced they are teaming up to launch “Tennessee on Me” a nationwide campaign to promote Tennessee tourism. “On me” will offer 10,000 free airline vouchers to four key Tennessee airports – Nashville, Memphis, Chattanooga, and Knoxville – with the purchase of a 2-night stay at TennesseeOnMe.com.
A warm, but rain free night permitted one of the largest fireworks display in Nashville history, synchronized with a live performance by the Nashville Symphony. Since 1946, the Nashville Symphony has been a important part of the Nashville music scene being well noted as a recording orchestra with 14 grammy awards.
