"We are so happy it is about to be unveiled," said Rick McEachern, Owner of Graystone Quarry and First Bank Amphitheater. "I think there is a huge demand for people who want live entertainment that is closer to where they live."
FirstBank Amphitheater is an open-air venue situated on a 138-acre site located on Graystone Quarry Lane in southern Williamson County. It's positioned at the base of a limestone rock quarry and is surrounded by cliffs up to 100 feet tall. The venue has room for 7,500 concert attendees, and also includes a 1.5 acre plaza area for gathering, dining, and merchandise.
"We get comments from people who say it doesn’t feel like I am in Tennessee anymore, and I’m in a different place," said McEachern.
McEachern said as people return to watch live music, safety precautions will still be in place. The venue will offer hand sanitizer and follow all health guidelines from local and national officials.
The venue is also hosting a job fair on June 24 and 25 for several positions, including the box office, ushers, guest services, operations, security, food and beverage service and more. They said additional job details will come soon. Those interested in applying can also send their resume to firstname.lastname@example.org.
