NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

Country-music star Sam Hunt announced Wednesday he will curate a new music festival called "The Nashional" this spring.

“The sense of community in Nashville helps give it the character and personality that makes me proud to be a part of it,” says Hunt. “I wanted to create an experience at The Nashional that celebrates music, community, and everything they mean to each other and this city.” 

The two-day festival promises an "inclusive, diverse and genre-blurring" line up of artists. 

Hunt himself is famous for an eclectic style that blends country roots music and R&B. 

Artists playing include Judah & The Lion,  Fetty Wap, The Brothers Osborne, Kyle, Quinn XCII, LANY, LANCO, Chelsea Cutler,  Ernest K., and Muscadine Bloodline.

Hunt is best known for his Grammy-nominated album Montevallo and last summer's hit single "Body Like a Back Road," which debuted at No. 1 on iTunes and became the fastest country song to reach 100 million and 200 million streams. 

He was inspired to create the festival while on his "15 in a 30" Tour last summer. 

Tickets for The Nashional go on sale Friday, Feb. 9 at 10 a.m. on ticketmaster.com.

Citi cardmembers will be able to purchase presale tickets starting Tuesday, Feb. 6 at 10 a.m.
