Gigging 4 Grub

CUMMING, Ga. — The Nashville Downtown music festival is coming to the Cumming Fairgrounds June 29. 

Presented by Gigging4Grub and sponsored by Rosati’s Pizza, the live concert will focus on the music of iconic country artists such as Johnny Cash, Merle Haggard, Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings and George Jones with special guest Southern Hospitality. The annual community event welcomes families and children of all ages to benefit for No Kid Hungry. Tribute bands will look and sound like the legendary artists while performing their hit songs on stage.

“We believe that we have put together a family-friendly, community-driven event that gives back to the people that need it right here in Forsyth County,” said Matt Smith, owner of Rosati’s Pizza. “We have locked in the best of the best old school country icons to play at our Nashville Downtown event.” 

Although Smith has enjoyed live music at his restaurant on a weekly basis, it was the charity work involved with this event that helped it take flight. Residents are encouraged to sit back, relax, and let the music take them to another time.  

“We know the mayor since our kids went to school together,” Smith said. “We asked him last year if he could give us a date to play live music at the Fairgrounds. This year we wanted to give back to our community and we chose Gigging4Grub.”

Doors open at 4 p.m., and the show runs from 5 to 10 p.m. Tickets are general admission and can be purchased for $10 online at https://rosatis.ticketleap.com/nashville-downtown or at the show. VIP ticket packages can be purchased for $40 and include VIP seating, a $10 Rosati’s Pizza gift card, and a bar. 

After the show, attendees can meet the musicians and take a photo. 

The Cumming Fairgrounds is at 235 Castleberry Road.
