Headliner Alan Jackson along with Eric Church, Eric Paslay and Jon Pardi will perform at the free-and-open-to-the-public music event

Nashville, TN – “Capitol Street Party 4,” a free music event open to the public is scheduled to take place on Demonbreun Street near Music Row, on Wednesday evening, September 21, beginning at 7:00 pm and is presented by Grand Avenue Chauffeured Transportation.  Live performances by Alan Jackson, Eric Church and newcomer Eric Paslay will literally take to the street, as a stage will be set up at one end of the closed-off Nashville thoroughfare.  EMI Records Nashville’s newest singer/songwriter Jon Pardi will extend the street party into the night with a special post-party performance at the Tin Roof.  Last year, over 10,000 fans packed Demonbreun Street. 

Capitol Records Nashville President & CEO, Mike Dungan explains, “Where else can you experience a true American icon, the artist with the #1 album in America, and the best new artist to come out this year?  All for the low, low price of … Nothing!  It’s free!  You’d be crazy not to be there!”

About Eric Church:
Eric Church catapulted into national success with the release of his debut country album Sinners Like Me in 2006 which produced radio hits “How ‘Bout You,” “Two Pink Lines,” and “Guys Like Me.” His sophomore release, Carolina, was recently RIAA-certified Gold and includes top 10 hits “Love Your Love The Most” and “Hell On The Heart” as well as Top 20 smash “Smoke A Little Smoke,” also certified Gold. The reigning ACM New Solo Vocalist of the Year Award, released his third studio album, CHIEF on July 26, 2011. The album topped both the Billboard Country and Top 200 album charts making it only the second country album to debut at No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200 this year.  CHIEF features his fastest-climbing radio single to-date, “Homeboy.”

About Eric Paslay:
Texas native, Eric Paslay (Pass-Lay) started playing guitar at 15 years old and had aspirations of being a songwriter.  He moved to Nashville to attend a music program at Middle Tennessee State University. Seven years after his move to Nashville, Paslay signed with EMI Record Nashville.  During those seven years he continually worked on his songwriting and played countless gigs around town.   Paslay has penned or co-penned every song on his debut album which will be released next year. He also has a songwriting cut, “Friday Night,” on the upcoming Lady Antebellum album, as well as, the Jake Owen single "Barefoot Blue Jean Night” which he co-wrote with Dylan Altman and Terry Sawchuk.
About Jon Pardi:
Jon Pardi may be new to the country music scene, but his strikingly original songs and relaxed confidence would suggest otherwise.  Hailing from a small town in Northern California, Pardi’s first taste of country music stardom started in his Grandmother’s house, where he performed karaoke for her at the tender age of 3.  The singer-songwriter spent his youth perfecting his craft – by 8 years old, he was playing the guitar and at 12, he was writing his own songs.  Pardi had his first band at age 14, performing a mixture of classic rock and country, all the while polishing his live performance skills. Determined to make his dream of country music fame a reality, Pardi moved to Nashville at 22 years old, where his unique musical style gained the attention of Song Factory which led to a publishing contract, and later a record deal.
