Nashville Sounds Partner With Pilgrimage Fest

Come out on Friday, September 8th to celebrate baseball, music and giving!

Three of Music City’s favorite pastimes — baseball, music and giving are set to collide on September 8, when the Nashville Sounds partner with Pilgrimage Music & Cultural Festival and Gibson Gives.

Set to host “Pilgrimage Night” at First Horizon Park, the event will find the Sounds taking on the Memphis Redbirds in a Friday night game starting at 6:35 pm CT. Gates open at 5:30 p.m. with fireworks to follow after the game.

$7 of each ticket sold will be donated to Gibson Gives to raise funds to help spread the gift of music far and wide. Tickets for “Pilgrimage Night” can be bought here.

About the Nashville Sounds’ “Pilgrimage Night”

The game’s ceremonial first pitches will be thrown out by Cesar Gueikian, President and CEO of Gibson and Pilgrimage co-founder Kevin Griffin (best known as Better Than Ezra’s frontman) and the first 1,000 fans at the ballpark will receive custom Gibson/Pilgrimage guitar picks.

In addition, there will be a giveaway for tickets to the festival.

Dedicated to advancing youth-focused music education, health, and wellness initiatives, Gibson Gives has raised over $4.5 million dollars and enabled $46 million in funding in the last four years.
