·2 min read

Nashville's streets will transform into a racetrack this week for the return of the Big Machine Music City Grand Prix to downtown.

Road closures started as early as Sunday, July 31, and will continue throughout the week as the streets make way for events leading up to the big race. More than 100,000 people attended last year's inaugural event.

FanFest kicks off the weekend Thursday on Broadway. Tim McGraw will be performing at the event Saturday night and Brantley Gilbert and Carly Pearce will headline on Sunday.
