Arena\'s 15th Anniversary: A Shot In The Arm For The Music Industry
Every week throughout Bridgestone Arena's Anniversary Season, we will celebrate the Arena's 15 year partnership with the Middle Tennessee community.

15th Anniversary Reflections: A Shot in the Arm

Over the course of its 15-year history, Bridgestone Arena has played an essential role in Nashville’s development, from jump-starting a burgeoning downtown scene to partnering with clients and sponsors to propel brands to new heights. The venue’s state-of-the art facilities, large capacity, and prime location have made it an ideal anchor for high-profile events like the star-studded CMA Music Awards. Widely regarded as a first-rate entertainment destination—as recognized by its back-to-back No. 6 Pollstar rankings for attendance among U.S. venues—Bridgestone Arena’s contributions to Nashville’s relevance, vibrancy and variety are evident and continue to grow.
