Live music will return to Crockett Park this June, according to to a May 11 announcement from the city of Brentwood.

The city's Summer Concert Series, which was canceled last year due to the coronavirus pandemic, will kick off June 6 at Crockett Park, located at 1500 Volunteer Parkway, Brentwood.

The series will feature four concerts each beginning at 6 p.m. and ending at 8 p.m. Concerts will also feature food trucks such as Blue Monkey Shaved Ice, Bradley's Curbside Creamery and Roadhouse Grille. This year's 4th of July concert will also feature fireworks at 9 p.m. and a post-show performance, according to the city.

This year's lineup includes:

  • Bicho Brothers on June 6

  • Six Wire on June 20

  • Tim Akers and the Smoking Section on July 4

  • Rubicks Groove on July 25


According to city officials, face masks are not required; however, attendees are encouraged to wear one if they feel more comfortable doing so.

“I want to see the concerts continue," Mayor Rhea Little said in a release. "Even for the July 4th concert, which can sometimes see close to 10,000 in attendance, I feel people will stay in their own groups of friends to be safe in this new post-COVID climate.”

“Unfortunately, we have had to close an extra day because of it,” said Jo Pezely, co-owner of Izzy’s, a restaurant in Franklin. “We were open seven days a week, but it was too much for us, so we decided to take that extra mental day, which is a Monday. But it was probably two months ago that we decided to close on Tuesdays.”
