NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

The Let Freedom Sing! Music City July 4th celebration will have a new layout and exciting performances on multiple stages this year. 

According to the Nashville Convention and Visitors Corp., the new footprint will be larger than years past, which will allow more to attend the party on Lower Broadway and Riverfront Park. 

The main stage will also move to 5th and Broadway, which is where headliner and Grammy-winning country music star Chris Young will perform. 

The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Jonny P, and The Sisterhood will also perform on the main festival stage.

The Nashville Symphony's performance at Ascend Amphitheater will be synchronized with the fireworks display, which will be the largest fireworks in the country for the third year in a row. 

“With the kind of year Nashville has had, it is only fitting that we celebrate with our largest fireworks show ever,” said Beth Seigenthaler Courtney, board chair of the Nashville Convention & Visitors Corp and president at DVL Seigenthaler. “A diverse lineup of great music will kick off the night on the Broadway Stage, and we will end it with an appropriate bang.”

More than 35,000 pounds of explosives and 150 miles of wire will be used in the show.

Video screens will be placed on Broadway between Third and Fourth Avenues, Walk of Fame Park and Ascend Amphitheater.
