Nashville's buzzing music scene gets a brush with politics as First Lady Jill Biden sets the stage for a star-studded night at the Ryman Auditorium. According to WSMV, Dr. Biden will grace the "Walkin' After Midnight: The Music of Patsy Cline" event this upcoming Monday, where she's scheduled to deliver remarks among a lineup of iconic artists.

On her whirlwind tour, which includes stops in Minnesota and Colorado, the First Lady's stop in the Music City seems like a crescendo of culture and influence. Her itinerary, detailed by the UC Santa Barbara Presidency Project, notes her arrival at Nashville International Airport at approximately 5 p.m. on April 22 — a high note for locals hoping to catch a glimpse.

The evening event is expected to draw a chorus of fans and notables alike, with performances by the likes of Wynonna Judd, Ashley McBryde, Kellie Pickler, and the legendary Pat Benatar. Local 3 News adds that additional star power will come from Kristin Chenoweth, Mickey Guyton, Rita Wilson, lighting up the historic stage of the Ryman Auditorium starting at 7:30 p.m.

The First Lady's presence at such an event reinforces a bridge between the arts and politics, showcasing her support for the music industry and cultural endeavors. Her speech, details of which are yet to be revealed, will align her with the country's greats, as they pay homage to a music legend. With pre-credential media registration already closed, the event's exclusivity has been underscored, but eyes will certainly be on Nashville as the First Lady takes a step closer to America's cultural heartbeat.
