NASHVILLE, Tenn. -

There will be two days of free music and fireworks in Music City this Fourth of July.

"Let Freedom Sing" is among the biggest fireworks shows in the country and organizers say this year will be even bigger.

The show will include 26,000 fireworks choreographed to music, making it the longest and largest in the event's history.

Hundreds of pounds of explosives have already been rolled into the parking lot at LP Field.

"It will be bigger than last year's show. I think we are going to try and add some stuff to the body of the show and to the finale and hopefully get a good all around show," Jimmy Huddleston with Pyro Shows told Nashville's News 2.

The festivities begin at Noon Thursday with the Family Fun Zone on the lawn at Riverfront Park.

Music will be performed from Noon until 6 p.m. on the Nashville Dancin' Stage at Riverfront Park with artists such as The Cultivation, Phoenix Stone and the Derek St. Holmes Band.

On the Advance Financial 24/7 Day Stage music begins at 12:55 p.m. with The Willis Clan, Joey DeGraw, and Chris Mulkey and Deluxe.

Music on the main stage at Riverfront Park will kick off at 6:45 p.m.

The Band Perry will perform along with Striking Matches, Barry Scott, Keb Mo and the Nashville Symphony.

The fireworks will start around 9:50 p.m.

On Friday, Chris Mulkey opens at 6:30 p.m. on the main stage at Riverfront Park. Ten out of Tenn. will play at 8 p.m. and the fireworks display is scheduled to start at 9:30 p.m.
