You might want to cancel your plans for Sunday, you guys. Because CMT and DQ are about to make it so much sweeter.
The brand new Sweetest Summer Celebration on March 31 will have live music from Lauren Alaina, Walker Hayes, Josh Turner and Maddie & Tae. All the performances are free, and there will be free sample Blizzards — from DQ’s new Summer Blizzard menu — for everyone there. I basically lived on their S’Mores Blizzards last summer, so I know that whatever they’re mixing up, it’s going to fuel the summer of 2019.
There will also be interactive games, all kinds of photo booth experiences, a cotton-candy-themed ball pit, prizes and more. It’s perfect for the whole family.
The performance schedule for Sunday runs from Noon-5pm CT, and will be on the outdoor stage right in Cumberland Park on 1st Street, just across the river from downtown Nashville’s honky-tonk row.
12:15 Maddie & Tae
(This will be a good practice session before the duo hits the road a month from now with Carrie Underwood.)
1:45 Josh Turner
(His gospel music may count as mass for those of you concerned about missing Sunday services.)
2:45 Walker Hayes
(See if you can find the Dairy Queen reference in his latest single.)
4:15 Lauren Alaina
(She recently told All Our Favorite People that she grew up singing Shania Twain’s “Man! I Feel Like a Woman!” in the back seat of her family’s car.)
The official address for Uber, Lyft and your own navigation system is 592 S 1st St. There will be free parking at Nissan Stadium, in Lot R South next door to the park.
And just for fun, here are a few of our favorite songs about Sundays.
