  NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Legendary country singer Alan Jackson is going to play a free outdoor concert Saturday in Music City in advance of the Nashville Predators first home game in the 2017 Stanley Cup Final.

The Grammy Award-winning singer and newest member of the Country Music Hall of Fame said it's an exciting time for the Predators and the city of Nashville. Jackson, in his statement, said he's a Predators fan and proud to be included in the team's road to the Stanley Cup.

The free concert will be held on Nashville's iconic Lower Broadway, with Jackson taking a stage that will face the Cumberland River. Jackson is scheduled to perform at 4:45 p.m. at Fifth and Broadway. Officials say coolers, backpacks and large bags will not be permitted because of safety concerns.
