2Country4Nashville and Vintage Base Ball at Carnton, Sunday
Joel & LeAnne Ulmer are the husband and wife duo team that make up 2Country4Nashville.
Carnton Plantation, managed by the Battle of Franklin Trust, will host a Vintage Base Ball game followed by the second of three summer concerts, featuring 2Country4Nashville, Saturday, July 28.
The Vintage Base Ball game is free. After nearly 150 years, a Civil War–era style of baseball will once again be played in Tennessee. Vintage base ball is a sport with strong support in the Midwest and Northeast but no teams in any state of the Mid-South until recently when the Tennessee Association of Vintage Base Ball was formed. Carnton Plantation is the home field for the Franklin Farriers who will play the Nashville Maroons from noon to 3 p.m.
2Country4Nasvhille will take the stage to present “Real Authentic Country Music” from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Advance tickets are $10 for people ages 13 and older or $12 at the gate. Children ages 6 through 12 are $5 each, and children 5 and under are admitted free. Tickets are available at Carnton and The Carter House. Gates open at 4:30 p.m.
Wrist bands will be issued for reentry and parking is free. The summer series is a family friendly event, but pets will not be admitted. Patrons are encouraged to bring lounging items such as lawn chairs or blankets.
Guests are more than welcome to bring their own food and drink, but both will also be available for purchase. Ace’s Kettle Corn, Begley’s Dogs and Snow-Ball Heaven will be served on site. No grilling will be allowed by guests. In the event of inclement weather, every effort will be made to reschedule the concert.
The Sunset Concert Series is made possible by sponsorships at two levels. Platinum Album sponsors include BancorpSouth, First Farmers, Music City Tents and Events, SunTrust Bank and Williamson Medical Center. Gold album sponsors are Franklin Synergy Bank, HawsGoodwin Investment Management, Peoples State Bank of Commerce and ProNet Residential Services.
The Carnton Sunset Concert Series is an eco-friendly event, and a banner, “Keep Carnton Green” will be posted as a reminder. Guests will also receive complimentary trash bags, donated by Keep Williamson Beautiful, at the entrance of the event. The Trust asks for guests to collect their trash and take their garbage with them when they leave.
