NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — The Nashville Convention and Visitors Corp announced their lineup for the city's Let Freedom Sing Fourth of July event this summer.

While the city will announce the headline in the coming weeks, we now know Grammy-winning reggae artist Gramps Morgan, country-pop-punk singer/songwriter Cassadee Pope, and country artist Levi Hummon will be part of the Riverfront lineup.

"As Nashville’s momentum as a global destination with world-class events continues to grow, we are grateful that Nashville’s annual Independence Day celebration will be bigger and better,” said Butch Spyridon, CEO, Nashville Convention & Visitors Corp. "We will be promoting all the activities the entire weekend to bring in visitors, and we also want Nashvillians to enjoy a great concert and fireworks show right in their backyard."

The event will include the city's typical fireworks show, which will sync up with live music from the Nashville Symphony.

For those who want to enjoy the festivities, the concert and fireworks show are free and open to the public. During the day, the free Family Fun Zone is returning to Music City Walk of Fame Park.

The main concert stage will set up at First and Broadway. After the concert, the event will shift to Ascend Amphitheater for the live performance by the Nashville Symphony and the fireworks show.
