August is here, and it's Live On the Green season. Every Thursday this month, and on the last weekend, a free music festival takes place at public square park in downtown Nashville. You heard that right. Free. you just show up and enjoy some great live shows. Live on the Green is a fairly new Nashville tradition, but has attracted over 300,000 people and rocked our socks and our hearts since 2009.
