More Details About Capitol Records Street Party 3

The “Capitol Street Party 3,” a free music event open to the public is scheduled to take place on Demonbreun Street near Music Row, on Wednesday evening, October 13, beginning at 6:00 pm.  Live performances will literally take to the street, as a stage will be set up at one end of the closed-off Nashville thoroughfare. 
Capitol Nashville platinum artist Darius Rucker will headline this year’s event. CMA New Artist of the Year nominee Luke Bryan, Capitol’s newest singer/songwriter and star of the hit TV show iCarly Jennette McCurdy, and EMI Records Nashville’s flagship artist Troy Olsen will all take to the stage to perform. For the first time Capitol is extending the street party further into the night with a special post-party performance at a local Demonbreun Street club featuring Walker Hayes.
This year marks the third year for the “Capitol Street Party 3” – which last took place in 2008. Over 9,000 fans packed Demonbreun Street, to hear free live music from Trace Adkins, Darius Rucker, Luke Bryan and Emily West (Darius and Luke both return by popular demand to perform again this year).
“Rumor has it that Brooks & Dunn will be reuniting right there, on our stage,” commented Capitol Records Nashville President & CEO, Mike Dungan.  “You’d be crazy not to be there. It’s Nashville; it’s free, and its history in the making!”
