The pre-game Broadway Smash for Game 4 of the Nashville Predators’ historic run to the Stanley Cup Final will feature Rodney Atkins’ “Music City Gives Back” concert on Monday, June 5 on Lower Broadway. The event is scheduled as part of the kick-off to CMA Fest week which is now overlapping with the Predators playoff games.

The concert will serve as a pregame tailgate party from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. The Game 4 home game will be shown on large screens starting at 7 p.m. The concert will take place at Broadway and Fifth Avenue, just as it did for Saturday night’s game.

The Music City Gives Back concert will close with multi-Platinum “More Girls Like You” singer/songwriter Kip Moore taking the stage. Atkins will also perform, along with country artists Granger Smith, Cole Taylor and Brett Young. The concert is in its seventh year as an annual summer jam benefiting W.O. Smith Music School.

The Lower Broadway concert is free and open to the public. Food trucks will be on site, and sodas and beer will be on sale. Bottled water and hot dogs will be available at low, family-friendly prices.

Folding chairs and small bags (no larger than 12”x12”) will be permitted, but for public safety coolers, backpacks and large bags will not be allowed. For a complete list of house rules, please go to

The parties are co-hosted by the City of Nashville and the Nashville Convention & Visitors Corp with the assistance of MooTV in support of the Nashville Predators and in partnership with the Nashville Area Chamber of Commerce and the Nashville Sports Council. They are produced by the NCVC, along with Music City Gives Back for Game 4.
