With 2019 CMA Fest Around the Corner, Lewis Brice Is Back With ‘LEWISPALOOZA 9’

Published on May 29, 2019

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – With CMA Fest right around the corner, Nashville and its artists are doing their final preparations. Dubbed as the unofficial kick-off for CMA Fest, Lewispalooza is back, with country artist, Lewis Brice and Nashville’s Tin Roof combining forces.

Country music artist, Lewis Brice, brother to Lee Brice, is joining forces with Nashville’s favorite bar, Tin Roof, for the return of their ninth annual kick-off to CMA Fest—Lewispalooza 9, on June 4, right outside of Tin Roof Demonbreun.

The concert, headlined by Lewis, will feature performances by his brother, Lee Brice, alongside John Wesley Satterfield, Stevie Monce, Jerrod Niemann, Paul McDonald, Curt Chambers, John Gurney and many more special guests.

Brice continues to defy genres with his country-rock sound, emphasizing the importance of family, friendship, and love.

The event is for all-ages, with a suggested donation at the door, benefiting Hope Song, a non-profit which helps the fight against cancer through the healing power of music. Hope Song was founded in April 2016 by John Wesley Satterfield to support the patients at Chipsa Hospital in Playas de Tijuana while they undergo extensive alternative treatment for cancer.

The non-profit arranges for two to three artists to travel to the hospital from Nashville every week to perform for the patients each night. Their vision is to provide funding for cancer treatment to those who cannot afford it in the future.

Last year’s Lewispalooza 8, which featured performances by the Brice brothers, Lauren Alaina, Jerrod Niemann, raised more than $14,000 for Hope Song. To watch highlights of the nearly six hour concert, click here.

Brice has released two major songs over the past few months, with the Thanksgiving release of ‘Blessed,’ followed by this summer’s jam, ‘Summertime Vibes.’

CMA Fest officially kicks off Thursday, June 6 and runs through Monday, June 10. To see the artist lineup and stage locations, click here.
