#SoundsRemastered

Yes, the Sounds are changing their name.

On June 21, the team will reprise their role as the Nashville Honky Tonks for four games to compete in the 2018 Battle For The Boot against the Round Rock Express, who will transform into the Round Rock Dance Halls.

In addition to the name change, both teams will wear new jerseys, colors and logos. The Sounds, or Honky Tonks, invite you out to First Tennessee Park to see the full transformation, as the American Southern Division Rivals conclude the nine-game series from June 21 to June 24 that will finish with one team winning the coveted Boot Trophy.

First Tennessee Park will also be assuming the role of Nashville Biggest Honky Tonk, set to feature live music from Cumberland Hospitality during each game to literally bring Broadway to the ballpark.
