Nashville's annual Americana Music Festival will have hosted more than 150 performances in Music City by the end of the week, and they've saved some of the biggest names and brightest stars for last.

On Saturday night, Loretta Lynn, Steve Earle and Gillian Welch will anchor a massive concert at the Ascend Amphitheater, along with Tift Merritt, Eric Heywood, Nikki Lane, Valerie June and Emmy Rose Russell. You might even consider this a music festival within a festival, as the Americana folks have added a second stage at the amphitheater — a first for the new venue — to pack in more live performances.

Doors for Saturday's concert open at 4 p.m., with music kicking off at 4:45. Tickets are $25, $45 and $75.
