The NFL Draft is coming to Nashville in April 2019.
NFL owners approved Nashville as the host city, besting bids from Las Vegas, Cleveland, Kansas City and Denver.
The three-day event on April 25–27 will mean a multi-million-dollar boon for Music City, as the Draft draws around 20,000 tourists and is watched by more than 45 million people via television and streaming.
Tim McGraw, who has been a vocal supporter of bringing the Draft to Nashville, teamed with former Nashville Titan Eddie George to make the NFL Draft announcement via Instagram.
“The 2019 NFL Draft is coming to Nashville,” said Tim, in part. “The future is now.”
