The music stopped playing in Music City for several weeks, but with stay-at-home orders being lifted and Nashville moving into phase three of its reopening plan, artists and fans are ready for live music to return.
Brad Paisley, Darius Rucker and Jon Pardi will get in on the action in July with a three-night drive-in concert series at the Nissan Stadium parking lot. Announced Monday (June 22), “Live From the Drive-In” will take place July 10-12 in Nashville as well as St. Louis and Indianapolis.
Nashville’s drive-in series will feature Pardi on Friday (July 10), Paisley on Saturday (July 11) and Rucker on Sunday (July 12).
In a press release announcing the shows, Live Nation promised to take special safety precautions at the shows, including “contactless ticket scanning,” which will take place through fans’ car windows, and “designated tailgate area(s) where they can park and enjoy the show from their own marked-off space.”

Tickets for all shows go on sale beginning at 10 am local time on Friday (June 26). ticket prices have yet to be announced, however, it was revealed that the shows will be divided into three ticketing tiers: gold, red and blue.
