Chris Young, Will Hoge + More Country Stars to Play Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition Launch Party
Chris Young and Will Hoge are part of an all-star lineup that will perform in "Swimville," a portion of Nashville, Tenn.'s Lower Broadway district that's being transformed into a concert venue to celebrate the launch of the 2015 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition.
The two days of concerts, being held Feb. 11 and 12, are part of the 2015 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Music and Fan Festival.
"I'm a sports fan. I'm a Sports Illustrated fan. I'm a Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue fan, too," Young tells Rolling Stone Country. "Let's just say it is going to be a blast playing Nashville next week."
The event is being headlined by the Kings of Leon, who will play a concert at Nashville's Schermerhorn Symphony Center. Their show, along with red carpet arrivals of the 2015 swimsuit models, will be broadcast live on multiple digital outlets, including the Sports Illustrated website.
“This live broadcast adds another exciting dimension to what is already the most ambitious launch of SI Swimsuit in its history,” says Brendon Ripp, Time Inc. Group's publisher. “We are leveraging the depth of Time Inc. resources to support the SI Swimsuit launch and our partners in Nashville for what promises to be an extraordinary events series.”
The Kings of Leon concert will stream live beginning at 7 PM ET.
