Predators, Governor Partner to Distribute Masks and keep ‘Smashville Strong’


Nashville, Tenn. (WKRN)- The Nashville Predators have been active in the campaign to keep people safe and healthy during the COVID-19 pandemic and their efforts continue as Music City prepares to enter ‘Phase 3’ of its reopening plan on Monday.

The Nashville Predators have partnered with Governor Bill Lee and the State Economic Recovery Group (ERG) to give out 20,000 free ‘Smashville Strong’ masks the city and corporate partners.
