While some of the most notable country music stars including Carrie Underwood,Taylor Swift, Miranda Lambert, Reba, LeAnn Rims, and the Pistol Annies gear up for the 46th Annual CMAs, the hip hop train gears up to invade Music City as well. As we enter the month of November, which also happens to be the birthday month of yours truly, there are a wave of shows that will be brought to our backyard that include some of the most nationally acclaimed emcees. Compton’s rising star, Kendrick Lamar will kick the month off on Sunday November 4th at Nashville’s historical War Memorial Auditorium. With the release of his latest, good kid, m.A.A.d city album, Nashville prepares to welcome the Interscope/Aftermath emcee with open arms.
Following up shortly after, there’s a 3-day knockout lineup that includes Dom Kennedy’s Yellow Album World Tour (November 15th at Limelight), the Slumerican Tour featuring Yelawolf, Rittz, Trouble Andrew, and DJ Vajra (November 16th at Cannery Ballroom), as well as comedians Lil Duval and Michael Blackson.As if that isn’t already a slammed pack line-up of shows and events, Nashville welcomes Wiz Khalifa and the entire Taylor Gang for the 2050 Tour taking place on November 25th at the cities largest venue, Bridgestone Arena. Although we were hoping to incorporate Rick Ross and the rest of MMG’s 23-city tour, it looks as though this show has been replaced for Indianapolis . However, as an update, MMG WILL be coming to Nashville December 9th with Machine Gun Kelly and DJ Scream at Bridgestone Arena!
While this may be hard to keep up with as the month of November vastly approaches, we’ve got you covered with detailed information as well as ticket links (aside from Currensy) listed below. There will periodically be
TICKET GIVEAWAYS for specific shows, so be sure to like our Facebook page and follow us on Twitter for the opportunity to go free on us. ‘Country Music USA’ continues to shoot down the stereotype as the progress of the city increases. November, we will give thanks for the growth and support of our tastemakers who continuously make this happen.
