The line-up for the Premier League's Nashville Weekend Warm Up has been revealed, with an array of top-tier country music artists due to take the SkyDeck stage on April 5.

NBC Sports and the Premier League will descend on Nashville for a country music and football extravaganza next month - the Premier League Mornings Live Fan Festival.

On Friday, April 5, fans will get the chance to enjoy an evening of free live music from a stellar roster of performers, as part of the Premier League Weekend Warm Up with Whiskey Jam, which will take place at the SkyDeck on Broadway.

Festival-goers will be able to witness electrifying sets from a plethora of country music stalwarts and hotly tipped up-and-comers, including feel-good Australian duo, Seaforth, soulful US crooner, Ruthie Collins and UK prodigy, Jordan Harvey. They'll be joined by Bizzy, Nightly, Lucie Silvas, Sam Palladio and Alex Lambert.

The Warm Up will be hosted by Whiskey Jam's founder, Ward Guenther, with the event ensuring the momentum is high heading into the weekend's Premier League Fan Festival.

The blockbuster two-day event, which is supported by the Nashville Convention and Visitors Corp, will spotlight the action from the weekend's games, including the return of the fierce rivalry between Manchester United and Liverpool.

The much-loved NBC Sports studio team, comprising Rebecca Lowe, Robbie Earle, Robbie Mustoe and Tim Howard, will present Premier League Mornings Live presented by Barclays from the Nashville Fan Festival via USA Network and Peacock.

A plethora of special guests and famous faces will join the NBC Sports team during the course of the weekend, which will serve as a celebration of the burgeoning popularity of the sport across the US - and in particular, in Music City.

The Premier League's Chief Commercial Officer, Will Brass, explained how this will solidify the competition's close relationship with the US, “The Weekend Warm Up is the newest way the Premier League is engaging with fans in the US. This is an exciting addition to the activity we have planned around our Premier League Mornings Live event in Nashville, bringing the worlds of soccer and music together ahead of the weekend’s matches getting under way. We are delighted to be working with Whiskey Jam, Sky Deck and the eight artists playing the Weekend Warm Up and I’m sure everyone who attends will have a great night”.

Speaking ahead of the initial Nashville Fan Festival announcement, the Premier League's US Managing Director Akash Jain, underlined his delight at the prospect of putting on this high-profile event, which will be the ninth of its kind in the States, “We are thrilled to announce Nashville, the Music City, as the next destination for Premier League Mornings Live with NBC Sports. This Fan Fest builds on our successful pre-season Summer Series tournament this past July, where we and six of our clubs got to meet thousands of Premier League fans in the U.S. who joined us for really competitive matches across five different cities”.

Jain went on, “We look forward to continuing our series of events in partnership with NBC Sports with this activity in Nashville, bringing the next Premier League Mornings Live event experience direct to our passionate supporters. It will be a great opportunity to engage with dedicated soccer fans who get up early every weekend to cheer on their team, in a city renowned for brilliant entertainment”.

Doors to the Nashville Weekend Warm Up open at 6pm, with the show commencing at 7pm.
