"Re-cap of the first two weeks of Nashville Dancin'Big thanks to everyone attending the first two weeks of Nashville Dancin’ presented by Dollar General! The first week of Nashville Dancin’ kicked off with the funky rhythms of Belmont boys, The Lonely Biscuits, and the soulful southern rock roots sounds of 18 South. As the sun dipped low on the horizon, the heartfelt blues music of Tommy Malone kept the crowd engaged. The evening was capped off with the jam-band sound and jambalaya goodness of Donna the Buffalo's tunes, which had the whole Riverfront up and moving.
The second Thursday night in this free summer concert series turned out to be just as exciting! A great crowd turned out for some remarkable performances. Britt Ronstadt provided a jumpstart to the festivities with her unique, sweet voice and soulful renditions. By the time Raelyn Nelson took the stage, the entire crowd was in full swing. As dusk fell on the beautiful downtown Nashville skyline, the McCrary Sisters had everyone on their feet and singing along to some great gospel tunes. Royal Southern Brotherhood continued the dancing with their thundering rock ‘n’ roll sounds of the south, and as a special treat, the band brought Britt Ronstadt out for a collaborative performance. Finishing off the night in true Dancin’ style, Shooter Jennings closed out a fun-filled night of entertainment on the RIverfront and delivered an unforgettable show.
As part of Nashville Dancin’ charitable donation efforts, concert goers were able to lend their support to the Monroe Carrell Jr. Foundation, the PENCIL Foundation, and the Dollar General Literacy Foundation by purchasing event t-shirts designed by local artists Ryan McCauley and Sheila B. T-shirts were made available at Music City’s first mobile fashion truck, The Trunk. Guests washed down the sweet sounds of the night with some quality crafted Tennessee Ole Smoky Moonshine, and chowed down on yummy eats provided by local food trucks.
Be sure to visit us this Thursday for the third installment of Nashville Dancin’ presented by Dollar General on the beautiful downtown Nashville Riverfront."
