The NFL and the Nashville Convention & Visitors Corp. announced plans for the 2019 NFL Draft Experience, presented by Oikos Triple Zero, a free three-day football festival held outside of Nissan Stadium during the 2019 NFL Draft, April 25–27. The Experience will be the largest to date and the first to integrate a free concert series featuring Nashville-based artists.

Grammy-winner Tim McGraw will headline the concert series at the Draft Main Stage in downtown Nashville. Grammy-nominee CeCe Winans will sing the National Anthem to open NFL Draft activities. 

"We're excited to show NFL fans from around the country why there's no better place for the Draft than Music City," said Steve Underwood, President and CEO of the Tennessee Titans. "Along with the Nashville Convention & Visitors Corp., and some of Tennessee's most talented artists, musicians and businesses, we'd like to welcome the NFL family to our team's hometown."

Throughout the week, the Draft Experience Stage will feature 15 Nashville-based acts representing diverse musical genres. Additional performances will be announced in the coming weeks.

"Each year, the NFL strives to make the Draft weekend a memorable experience for our fans. The passionate fan base and iconic location will ensure a unique experience that is unlike anything fans have ever seen," said Peter O'Reilly, NFL Executive Vice President, Club Business and League Events. "We want to thank the Tennessee Titans and the city of Nashville for being a gracious host for the 2019 NFL Draft."
