Chris Young Will Welcome Swimsuit Models to Nashville

Sports Illustrated Festival Puts the Girls in a Country Song

I’m sure Chris Young is used to having gorgeous girls show up at his concerts. But this? This has to be one for the record books.

On Feb. 12, Young is going to be part of the 2015 SI Swimsuit Fan Festival in downtown Nashville. It’s a brand new event to launch this year’s Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue, the magazine’s famous annual issue that has been around since 1964.

Naturally, there will be swimsuit models from the magazine walking the red carpet. There will also be food trucks, but I’m sure you won’t find any of the women partaking in street eats.

The free two-day event starts on Wednesday (Feb. 11), on Lower Broadway between Fourth and Fifth Avenues, and will feature live music and a variety of fan events. So in other words, bring your copy of Sports Illustrated to have it autographed. Other artists performing during the event include Holly Williams, Will Hoge, Thousand Horses, Nikki Lane, Chris Stapleton and many more.

The 2015 SI swimsuit issue hits stands on Monday (Feb. 9).
