With the help of sponsors GAC, Wrangler Western Wear®, Cricket Wireless, Carl Black Chevrolet and Advanced Auto Parts, fans will be able to enjoy a night of great music at no cost and have the opportunity to contribute to the American Red Cross.  Donations may be made on site.

“Last year was such a great experience to close down Broadway and to raise money and awareness for the American Red Cross, we decided to do it again,” shares Rodney. “This is an organization that helps so many people in all of our communities and they need support not just when disaster strikes. Looking forward to getting out there and working with Wrangler Western Wear® and Cricket’s Muve Music to raise awareness and party with everyone in Music City.”

Those unable to attend the festivities will still be able to enjoy the concerts by streaming the performances LIVE on the Wrangler® Facebook page.
