Live Nation and Graystone Quarry Events are teaming up to bring a new 7,500-seat amphitheatre to southern Tennessee in the historic Graystone Quarry to open in 2020 with a full season of concert events.
“We’re thrilled to welcome Graystone Quarry to our portfolio of venues and provide artists with another amazing amphitheater to connect with their fans,” said Tom See, president of Live Nation Venues. “With our partner Graystone Quarry Events, Live Nation will deliver Tennessee concert-goers countless unique and memorable live event experiences starting in 2020.”
The 138-acre site is convenient to Nashville and the surrounding cities, located within in a wooded, natural stone and park-like setting. Graystone Quarry has a rising profile as an upscale destination for weddings, corporate meetings and private parties.
The amphitheater will be at the base of a limestone rock quarry surrounded by cliffs up to 100 feet tall, creating a dramatic outdoor location with ideal visual and acoustic space for music events. The reclaimed quarry was active 50 years ago, with the rock used in the construction of Highway 65 through Williamson County.
“We envision this venue hosting some of the most popular touring groups coming to Nashville,” says Brian Traeger, president of Live Nation Tennessee. “The spectacular natural backdrop, alongside modern-day amenities the space will offer are going to create a phenomenal experience for both artists and fans.”
The amphitheater site will include a 1 ½ acre plaza area for gathering, dining, and merchandise.
“We’re focused on delivering memorable concert experiences which also include great food, comfortable seating, and convenient parking in a natural and inspiring outdoor setting ideal for enjoying a night of music and fun with friends,” said Rick McEachern, Owner at Graystone Quarry. “And we’re delighted to have Live Nation’s event expertise and talent roster to bring this new venue to life.”
