“Nothing brings out the holiday spirit more than warming up on a cold night with your favorite holiday record,” said Justin Branam, Musicians Corner Program Director, “This compilation demonstrates the diverse array of music coming from Nashville, and we hope that it brings holiday cheer to people across the globe.”

Season’s Greetings From Nashville will be available globally by stream or download across all digital platforms, with a limited edition CD available at Musicians Corner’s website and select Nashville retailers.

Musicians Corner was founded in 2010 to support local artists and offer free public access to music in Nashville’s Centennial Park. This year Musicians Corner presented 21 free music events with performances by over 125 artists, and an audience of over 75,000 people. Over the years it has become a place for artist discovery, with performances by both emerging and legendary artists including Chris Stapleton, Emmylou Harris, Vince Gill, St. Paul & The Broken Bones, Preservation Hall Jazz Band, and more.

Proceeds from Season’s Greetings From Nashville support Musicians Corner, a 501(c)3 nonprofit program of The Conservancy for the Parthenon and Centennial Park.
