Sam Hunt Announces First-Ever ‘The Nashional’ Music Festival

The two-day party is set to take place on April 20-21 at the Bicentennial Capitol Mall State Park in Nashville, Tenn. Press play on the video above to check out the official trailer for the upcoming festival.
Hunt, who is known for his genre-bending performances and ability to take influence from a wide spectrum of musical styles, will bring in a diverse lineup that will include Nashville's own Judah & the Lion, Fetty Wap, Brothers Osborne, West Coast rapper Kyle, Quinn XCII, LANY, Lanco, Chelsea Cutler, Ernest K. and Muscadine Bloodline. According to Hunt, he was inspired to create this festival while out on the road for his 15 in a 30 Tour in the summer of 2017, and he knew immediately it had to be in Nashville.
"The sense of community in Nashville helps give it the character and personality that makes me proud to be a part of it," Hunt said in a press release. "I wanted to create an experience at the Nashional that celebrates music, community and everything they mean to each other and this city."
The critically acclaimed country star most recently garnered two Grammys nominations for his single "Body Like a Back Road," which spent a record-breaking 35 consecutive weeks at the top of the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart last year.
