Presented by BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee, the series of free Saturday night shows will feature musical acts performing from the Zaxby's Stage.
Healthy living, healthy food and drink choices, adult beverages and businesses and organizations that promote sustainable development in the Scenic City will line the venue's borders in a display of educational entertainment with the Tennessee River as its backdrop.
Riverfront Nights is family friendly and dog friendly as well.
Opening act on Saturday is a local band, the Communicators. They kick off the "country/southern rock" show at 7 p.m. Jacob Powell will play from 8-10 p.m. and is a young country rock artist. He is following in the footsteps of Zac Brown and Eric Church.
