You've got a cookout planned, a great spot for fireworks, and you're relaxing in the summer heat. What's left? Live music. Few things are more fun than a concert, especially to celebrate a holiday in the middle of summer, when the concert season is at its peak. And Nashville, Music City itself, has a lot of concerts for you to check out over July 4th weekend, from country stars to iconic venues, so find one you can't miss and get your tickets before they sell out!
